ATP Stockholm Open, 12:00 – Sock v Gasquet
Sock won their only previous meeting. That was in August this season on a hard court. He won in 3 sets.
Sock should have lost to Simon. Simon wasted at least 7 break points in their opening set. Sock got just 1 and took it. Simon was a double break up at 5-2 in the second and fell apart. Obviously some of that was down to Sock but he rode his luck.
Gasquet has also had a little luck with Darcis retiring and he beat Chardy in a 3rd set tie break.
Value is on Sock though I think Gasquet takes it.
Wait for a price nearer 1.80.
ATP Erste Bank Open, 14:30 – Ferrer v Monfils
Monfils leads their previous meetings 3-2 but Ferrer won their last 2. The most recent was in October 2013. That was also on an indoor hard court and he won in 2 sets.
Ferrer lost his 1st set of the week but has looked good since. He easily beat Fognini and Garcia Lopez. He reached the final last year.
Monfils faced a few break points in his first 2 matches but didn’t face any against Rosol. He did lose the opening set in a tbreak though. Monfils isn’t at his best and I favour Ferrer for the win.
Wait for 1.75 or better.
