Fabio Fognini v Gael Monfils Predictions & Tips

In a match between the world number 10 Gael Monfils and 12th-ranked Fabio Fognini, it is tough to pick up a winner. What makes it doubly tough is the head to head record between these two players, four wins apiece for both. Making things interesting is even on clay, which is Fognini’s favourite surface, Monfils has won two of the five matches they have played. With their match being so tough to call, we will avoid calling a winner and think it will go down to three sets.

Tip: Three sets in the match: 8/5 (Click here to get these odds with bet365)

Daniil Medvedev v David Goffin Predictions & Tips

These two players, Daniil Medvedev and David Goffin, have played each other thrice and all three matches have come in 2019. And Medvedev leads 2-1. Two of those matches came at Grand Slams, with the scores tied at 1-1 while in the third encounter, which was also their latest, at the Cincinnati Masters, Medvedev defeated Goffin in the final to lift the title.

And one can expect the same to happen here as well, with the world number five Medvedev topping the 11th-ranked Goffin in straight sets.

Tip: Medvedev to win in straight sets: 13/10 (Click here to get these odds with bet365)

Jan-Lennard Struff v Lucas Pouille Predictions & Tips

Five matches between Lucas Pouille and Jan-Lennard Struff have led to another tough tussle with the Australian Open semifinalist Struff holding the edge at 3-2. Interestingly, three of those encounters have come on grass, with Pouille leading 2-1 but Struff did win the last time they met at Stuttgart and in straight sets.

Pouille has had a better recent record overall, and should start off as a favourite here but expect Struff to come out all guns blazing. Another three-setter in the offing here.

Tip: Three sets in the match: 7/5 (Click here to get these odds with bet365)

Stan Wawrinka v John Isner Predictions & Tips

On the face of it, Wawrinka holds the edge over Isner given his past record but one look at the head to head and there could be a few surprised looks here. Isner has won three of their four matches, with Wawrinka’s only win over his American opponent having come way back in 2009 in Tokyo, a straight-set victory on hard court. Both players lost their opening round matches here at Diriyah but that should make them come out stronger and go toe to toe, making this another hard-fought encounter on the day. Our third pick for a three-setter.

Tip: Three sets in the match: 7/5 (Click here to get these odds with bet365)
