Rafael Nadal and Karen Khachanov to play over 18.5 games at 1.80 @ NairaBet
Rafael Nadal continues his quest for an eleventh Monte Carlo on Thursday, when he takes on Karen Khachanov in the third round. Nadal looked in ominous form in his tournament opener against Aljaz Bedene; and is of course the overwhelming favourite to get past Khachanov. However, Khachanov also plays some good tennis on clay, and has impressed in Monte Carlo with straight-sets victories over Thanasi Kokkinakis and Gilles Simon. Nadal should be fairly comfortable, but Khachanov, with his big serves and forehands should push this to over 18.5 games.


Dominic Thiem to beat Novak Djokovic at 2.25 @ NairaBet
Two-time Monte Carlo champion, Novak Djokovic has shown signs of resurgence this week, getting past Dusan Lajovic and Borna Coric in the opening two rounds, but he faces an almighty test on Thursday, as he crashes into the ‘Prince of Clay’, Dominic Thiem. Having reached the semi-finals at Roland Garros in the last two seasons, Thiem is seen as the heir apparent to the King, Nadal, and he has got another opportunity to show just why he is so highly-rated on this surface.

Djokovic has won five of their six meetings, but the improving Thiem took their most recent encounter at the French Open last year, and I’m backing the Austrian to make it back-to-back wins over the former world number one, who remains well short of his best form.


Richard Gasquet to beat Mischa Zverev in straight sets at 1.60 @ NairaBet
Frenchman, Richard Gasquet had a decent start to the season, reaching the third round at the Australian Open, and making the final in Montpellier. He went off the boil after that; and struggled with a knee injury which forced his withdrawal from Indian Wells. However, Gasquet has shown improved form and fitness on clay, an improvement emphasized by his crushing win over Diego Schwartzman in Monte Carlo on Wednesday. Next up for the former world number seven is a third-round meeting with Mischa Zverev, who has also caught the eye in Monte Carlo, particularly in his three-set win against Lucas Pouille in the previous round.

Gasquet beat Zverev in two sets in their only previous meeting in Shenzhen in 2016, and I expect more of the same on Thursday. Zverev’s big-serving will earn him his fair share of games, but Gasquet should have too much know-how for the German on this surface- I’m rooting the Frenchman and his flashy single-hander to get through this one in straight sets.
