Cecchinato vs Dzumhur predictions


French Open semi-finalist Marco Cecchinato looks to get his European clay season off to a winning start on Monday at the Monte-Carlo Masters when he takes on Damir Dzumhur.

This time last year, Cecchinato was barely ranked inside the top 100 and not expected to make any sort of meaningful impact at basically any tournament across the season.

However, fast forward 12 months, and Cecchinato has won three ATP titles on the surface in Budapest, Umag and Buenos Aires, while even more impressively, he made it to the French Open semi-finals, beating Novak Djokovic along the way.

The Italian is currently at a career-high ranking of No. 16 and will be confident of doing more damage on the clay over the coming months. Cecchinato is 7/20 @ Betfair to win on Monday.

Meanwhile, Dzumhur is woefully out of form and has been for a while now, bringing a 3-7 record into Monte-Carlo, while his winning percentage on clay is worse than on hardcourt and grass.

Combined with his three-match losing run to Cecchinato, it doesn’t look like being a great day at the office for Dzumhur on Monday. However, if you fancy the Bosnian to cause the upset, you can get odds of 12/5 @ bet365.

Cecchinato vs Dzumhur match stats


  • Cecchinato leads their tour-level head-to-head 3-1
  • Cecchinato has won their last three matches in straight sets
  • All of those wins have come on clay (two of them in 2018)
  • Cecchinato beat Dzumhur 6-3 6-2 in R1 of Monte-Carlo last year

Cecchinato vs Dzumhur betting tips


As mentioned, everything is in Cecchinato’s favour for a comfortable and straightforward win in Monte-Carlo on Monday. He hasn’t dropped more than five games in his last two wins over Dzumhur, is the far superior clay courter and is generally in much better form. Dzumhur struggles on clay at the best of times, and in his current form, he likely won’t be a factor at all in Monte-Carlo. Expect Cecchinato do record another straight sets victory over his Bosnian rival.
