Gael Monfils v Lorenzo Musetti Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before This will be the first match between the 35 year old Frenchman, and the Italian, who is sixteen years younger.
Monfils Aiming for Strong Finish for the Year
Unlike Musetti, Monfils has enjoyed the better results of his season towards the latter end, although the fact that also dates from hs marriage to Elina Svitolina is probably just a coincidence.
Recently forced to defend the honour of French tennis from the critics after he was the only local to go deep into the Moselle Open, reaching the semi-finals, he has turned in a series of consistent results, a highlight being Sofia where he got to the final before losing to Jannik Sinner.
He was last in action in Indian Wells where he got to the third round before losing to Alexander Zverev in three sets.
Monfils will be looking for another good week here and at the Paris Masters next week to ensure that he once more ends the year a top twenty player.
Musetti Eyeing Milan Place
Musetti is on the verge of qualifying for the Nextgen ATP finals which will be held in Milan next month. He needs just a few ranking points to be absolutely sure of his place, which will be a fine reward for the season the Italian has enjoyed, even I he has flown under the radar compared to some of the other teenage tennis talent this year.
He broke into the top 100 for the first time by reaching the semi-finals of the Mexican Open, the youngest to do so before Carlos Alcaraz broke his record a few weeks later.
And another semi-final was to follow in Lyon, and then he got to the fourth round at the French Open.
Results have fallen away though with the switch away from clay, and ,since Paris, he has not been beyond the second round of any event.
That run continued last week in Antwerp where, having beaten compatriot Gianluca Mager in his opening round match, he was beaten by another Italian, the top seed, Jannik Sinner, an opponent he could face again in Milan.
Monfils v Musetti Prediction and Tip
Monfils will begin the clear favourite against a man, who has struggled away from clay in recent months.
