We are in a bad losing series in the ATP. We really do not know why there are such surprises recently, but we believe that after the bad period there will be the sun on our street. We are continuing following the ATP Monte Carlo, Monaco anyway and our next pick will be for today.
Grigor Dimitrov faces off against his rival of Belgium - David Goffin. They will take a part of quarterfinals of this amazing competition. The Bulgarian Ace is coming off a three sets winning against his rival of Germany - Philipp Kohlschreiber that took 29 games to decide. Dimitrov won 68.4 % of his first serve points and 58.2 % of his second serve points. Dimitrov struggled with his serve yet again, but he won 41% of his return points and gave himself 40 break chances. Dima has played three sets in five of his previous six appearances.
The Bulgarian talent has won four of his previous five quarter-finals appearances, also, he hopes to make his fifth career semi-finals appearance in ATP World Tour Masters 1000, moreover, he has won six of his previous nine encounters on a clay court.
The Belgium talent is coming off a straight-sets win against Roberto Bautista Agut that took 22 games in an event. David won 75.3 % of his first serve points and 51 % of his second serve points. Goffin beat one of the hotter players in the tournament despite being broken three times. Belgium has yet to drop a set this tournament and has a chance to make the semifinals of the Monte Carlo Masters for the second straight year, moreover, he has won five of his previous six quarter-finals challenges, furthermore, he has a chance to make his fourth ATP World Tour Masters 1000 semi-finals appearance of his career. However, David Goffin has won four of his previous six appearances on a clay court.
Without necessarily playing well at the start of the new season, the Bulgarian rocket has some decent results, making the semi-finals in Brisbane, the quarterfinals at the Australian Open, and the final in Rotterdam. The results dried up post-Rotterdam, as he suffered successive opening round defeats in Dubai and Indian Wells, while he could only manage one win in ATP Miami, beating Maximilian Marterer before falling to Jeremy Chardy.
Yesterday, we were wrong about our decision to think that Albert Ramos-Vinolas is capable to win a set against his rival of Germany, but it didn’t happen. The next game which we really want to predict and give our exclusive verdict is going to be again from ATP Monte Carlo, Monaco, round of 16 between Mischa Zverev and Richard Gasquet.
The German rocket is a typical hard and grass court player. Richard Gasquet is already 31 years old but he is very good and solid player on this surface. We expected the French Ace to lose from Diego Schwartzman yesterday, but he made a big win 2:0 (6:2, 6:1), so he will be rested enough to play his best game today. The bottom line is Zverev usually fizzles out around this time on the big stage no matter how well he is playing, and his serve hasn’t been consistent. Gasquet is playing his best tennis this season the last couple of weeks and will see plenty of break points.
We expect a 0-2 win but it is always risky so we will be on a win of Richard Gasquet & Over 21 games in this amazing contest. The French had an injury this season but it seems he is fit already and play solid in this competition and also showed an amazing performance last week.
The next game which we liked and predict and give our exclusive verdict is going to be again from ATP, Monte Carlo, Monaco between Philipp Kohlschreiber and Albert Ramos-Vinolas. Against each other, both sides have played two times so far and this game is going to be very interesting for watching. In the previous appearances, the German rocket was more successful with two wins, while Vinolas was better but he doesn’t win any game against his rival of Germany.
What is common to almost all of these encounters is a lot of uncertainty and an overwhelming number of matches. It should not be surprising that both players are top-level servers, so these semi-finals should go in that direction. Our advice for this amazing contest is Over 22.5 Games.
Yesterday, we did another good winning tip after a huge and amazing performance by Kei Nishikori. The Japanese Ace lose the first set against the Czech giant - Tomas Berdych. Nishikori found the right way to win next two sets. Meanwhile, we continue to follow the most interesting tournament at the moment. Kyle Edmund faces off against the Italian rocket - Andreas Seppi.
Against each other, both players are met two times so far, as the British Ace leads 2-0 in mutual clashes, moreover, he is a favourite to win today but it will not happen. We will try to find a surprise here. Edmund is the best British player at the moment. He was a finalist in ATP Marrakech last week but in the final was really tired and he lost 2:0 (6-2, 6-2) by 34 years old Spaniard Andujar.
Seppi plays good tennis his last loses are from Roger Federer and Lucas Pouille in Davis Cup where the match finished 3:2.
The Italian Ace is not the best clay court player but he is a very motivated player and if Kyle Edmund is tired, Seppi will take the game. Except for Morocco, Edmund is not in good shape this year. In January he made several solid games, furthermore, in February he did only losses.
Another good winning tip yesterday as we were right about our decision and expert analysis to think that Johnson and Fritz are capable to do tennis game over 22.5 Games. The next interesting tennis which we found on the tennis schedule is going to be from ATP, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Kei Nishikori faces off against Tomas Berdych.
Against each other, both players are met 6 times so far. In mutual clashes, Kei Nishikori leads 5-1. Nishikori is a very tough rival. Tomas has some difficulty with his rival's style of play. Аlso, the Japanese Ace is a typical clay tennis player and he has all chances to beat his rival of the Czech Republic.
