I was asked yesterday to post about the games being shown on the BBC. Its hard to know exactly which games will be shown.
I would imagine they will start with the final set of the Bogdanovic match.
I exepct they will then stay with Centre Court to show Monfils v Schuettler.
After that is Andy Murray which they are guaranteed to show.
Monfils v Schuettler
Rankings are 20 and 82. They haven’t played before.
Monfils will be happy to get back on grass. It is much more suitable for his dives. He had a decent clay court season without being spectacular reaching a couple of quarter finals in Nice and Madrid where he lost to Nadal.
Schuettler doesn’t like clay and only played the French Open where he lost in the first round. He switched to the hard court tournaments of the Challenger Tour and other than reaching one final he didnt have much success there either.
This should be a straight sets win for Monfils who starts at 1.52 on Betfair.
Either back him from the start or on serve.
Update: Monfils was struggling with a knee injury and asked for the trainer midway through the first set. Both players were making too many unforced errors.
Monfils did continue but lost the first set.
He came back to take the second set on a tie break but Shuettler ran away with the third.
Schuettler won 6-3, 6-7, 6-2.
