ATP Monte Carlo – 14:45 – Monfils v Dolgopolov
Monfils leads the head to heads 2-0. Both were on hard courts in 2013.
Monfils wasn’t overly impressive in his first match losing the opening set to Kuznetsov.
Dolgopolov reached the fourth round in Miami taking Djokovic to 3 sets. He needed 3 sets in his first match this week but I had expected Coric to take a set.
This should be another close match. I have to give an edge to Monfils but I will be very surprised if he wins without a scare or 3.
Wait for a higher price on Monfils. An early break for Dolgopolov would be perfect. Monfils starts around 1.70
WTA Claro Open Colsanitas, 16;30 – Pfizenmaier v Falconi
Pfizenmaier struggled against ageing Date Krumm in the first round. She hit 10 double faults and won just 38% of 2nd serve points.
Falconi has been playing pretty well. She took Muguruza to 3 sets in Indian Wells and Ivanovic to 3 in Miami. She doesn’t have a great record on clay winning 25 of her last 50 matches but I think she is playing well enough to make a match of this.
Pfizenmaier is below her best right now. Falconi will have the higher confidence and that can make all the difference. Falconi is too low at 1.63 though. Expect a few breaks of serve.
Back Falconi when she is an early break behind.
