Monfils leads their previous matches 2-1. Raonic also has a win by default. . Their most recent meeting was in January this year. Raonic won in 4 sets at the Australian Open.
Both have only lost 1 hard court match this year. 2016 stats favour Monfils.
Monfils has started the season well and Raonic has made improvements to his all round game. I have to favour Raonic for this but his price is too low at 1.35. If Monfils can serve well this could be settled in tie breaks.
It’s worth laying Raonic around 1.20 as I feel we get 3 sets.
