09:00 – Dent v Monfils
Rankings are 76 and 13. They have never met.
Monfils will be keen to get off to a good start this season. His talent should have taken him higher than 13 but he has too many poor runs during a season to challenge for a top 10 spot.
Dent had some good results on the Challenger tour reaching a couple of finals and winning one of them.
Monfils should be too strong especially if his serve is anything like its best. However on his day Dent can give anyone problems. Dent prefers to play nearer home and doesn’t travel well.
Back Monfils on serve. Alternatively, wait for a break of serve before backing the leading player and green up after they hold sevice for a few easy ticks profit.
