ATP Monte Carlo, 1st round: Gasquet v Almagro (12:30)

Head to heads are level at  3-3.  Gasquet won their last 3 matches. Their last one was in April last year. He won in straight sets on clay.

Almagro has  played well at times this year.  I felt like he was getting back near his best.  He reached the final on clay in Buenos Aires. He lost to Nadal in Rio and since then his form has dipped.

Gasquet doesn’t play a great deal of clay tournaments but has a decent record on the surface. He has only played once on clay this year which was a Davis Cup match.

Almagro should raise his game for this match and I think he can take at least a set.  Lay Gasquet around 1.20 .
