Match: Gael Monfils vs. Gilles Muller Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Monday, 29 August, 2016
One of the matches that grab our attention in the 1st round of US Open 2016 is definitely between Gael Monfils and Gilles Muller.
They have met each other 2 times – Monfils won this year in Monte Carlo (clay) 7:5 6:0 but Muller won last year in Toronto (outdoor hard) 6:3 3:6 7:6. Monfils is playing some of his best tennis right now and definitely, should be counted amongst the players who could surprise the big favorites.
In the last two months, he won Washington ATP 500, reached the Semi-Final in Toronto Masters and Quarter-Finals at the Olympics where he lost in the tie-break in the 3rd set against Kei Nishikori. Muller is the kind of a player who can beat almost everyone if his serve is on fire. He lost 2 ATP 250 finals this year but he’s really having a mediocre year with many ups and downs. I expect him to give a decent fight here to Monfils and maybe lose in 4 or 5.
