Andy Murray vs Gael Monfils – Match Predictions

As both players set their sights on a place in the next round, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Andy Murray to Win

To be fair, Andy Murray has struggled to find his stride recently. The former World number 1 is currently on a four-match losing streak, and all of those losses came in straight sets. However, Monfils hasn’t exactly fared much better than his opponent. The French player suffered six losses in his last seven singles matches, with five of those coming in straight sets. It’s important to point out that Andy Murray has fared well against Monfils in the past; he has four wins in six previous clashes between these two, and three wins in four previous meetings on clay courts. Taking both players’ recent struggles into account, we are backing Andy Murray to advance to the next round.

Over 21.5 Total Games

Given that both players have found it difficult to win matches recently, we don’t expect this to be a one-sided contest. That said, we would like to explore the over/under games market. Interestingly, the last three, and four of the last five meetings between these players ended in maximum sets, going comfortably above the projected total. On that note, we are fairly confident that this match will go over 21.5.

Our Andy Murray vs Gael Monfils predictions have been established, let’s see how these two have fared these past few weeks.

Andy Murray

The past couple of months have not been very pleasant for Andy Murray; he has lost four matches in a row, all in straight sets. The former World number 1 will hope to get back to winning ways today, and he’ll fancy his chances against a struggling Gael Monfils.

Gael Monfils

Like today’s opponent, Gael Monfils isn’t exactly enjoying his best form at the moment. The French player suffered six losses in his last seven singles matches, and hasn’t really been 100 percent since he injured his leg in August last year. It’ll be interesting to see how Monfils will match-up against Andy Murray in this tie.

Andy Murray vs Gael Monfils Head to Head

This will be the seventh encounter between these players in competitive fixtures; Andy Murray currently leads the head-to-head with a 4-2 record. Interestingly, four of six previous clashes between these players were on clay courts, with Murray coming out on top in three of them.
