First round action gets underway on Monday at the Sofia Open in Bulgaria and the Open Sid de France in Montpellier, and here, you have the best bet tips for the day’s matches with odds from Wakabet
Gael Monfils to beat Viktor Troicki at 1.29 on Wakabet, ATP Sofia Open
For a place in the second round, Frenchman, Monfils takes on Viktor Troicki of Serbia and I am going with Monfils for the win.
Troicki has won only four main draw matches on the ATP Tour in the past 12 months. Just four! Also, not once in four previous encounters has he gotten the better of Monfils. I don’t see him turning the tables now.
Stan Wawrinka vs Marius Copil (Over 22.5 games at 1.65 on Wakabet) ATP Sofia Open
World No.57, Stan Wawrinka will take on last year’s finalist, Marius Copil, who’s ranked 56th in the world, in the opening round. Both men haven’t been at their best lately, with good results few and far between. They’ve met twice in the past, with the most recent in 2015. Wawrinka clinched both, but they were tight encounters. I expect this to be closely-contested for, too.
Jo-Wilfred Tsonga to beat Ugo Humbert at 1.28 on Wakabet, ATP Montpellier
First time meeting between these two, but powerful Tsonga should be too strong for his countryman.
Ivo Karlovic to beat Marcel Granollers at 1.41 on Wakabet, ATP Montpellier
Karlovic and Spain’s Granollers have played each other four times, with Karlovic winning thrice. Karlovic is also the player in better form this year, having kick-started his season with a run to the final at the Maharashtra Open in Pune.
Karlovic’s serve, which is the arguably the best the sport has seen, should be able to do the damage.
