With both Monfils and Rublev seeking to capitalize on their recent form and progress deeper into the tournament, this showdown promises to deliver high-intensity action on the grand stage.

3-1 to Andrey Rublev @ 29/10 (3.90)

Rublev’s tenacity and Monfils’ ability to exploit vulnerabilities create an intriguing dynamic that is set to captivate fans in this second-round duel. The prior meetings between the two have been whitewashed in either direction. With Rublev arriving at Flushing Meadows on the back of three successive defeats and Monfils going deep in events, we expect a deciding set to be enforced in this duel. Despite the Frenchman’s resurgence, we do not see him getting past Rublev, who should triumph with a 3-1 score.

Rublev to win and Under 38.5 total games @ 2/1 (3.00)

Rublev’s win over Arthus Cazaux came in 30 games. Monfils will force the issue but it will not change the conclusion of the match with the Russian progressing to the next round. With the Frenchman’s physicality being suspect and Rublev’s ability to finish off matches, we expect the latter to triumph in Under 38.5 games.
