Dimitrov vs Berrettini predictions


Grigor Dimitrov has a tough opening round match at the Monte-Carlo Masters on Sunday when he comes up against World No. 54 Matteo Berrettini.

It’s hasn’t been a great season for Dimitrov so far. There was high hopes for the Bulgarian after he went through a big pre-season with Andre Agassi and Gil Reyes in Las Vegas, but things haven’t gone according to plan of the first quarter of 2019, with Dimitrov playing just three tournaments and battling injury problems.

Dimitrov lost in the quarter-finals of Brisbane and the fourth round of the Australian Open to Frances Tiafoe, while he went down in the second round of Miami in his last event to Jordan Thompson.

A semi-finalist in Monte-Carlo last season, Dimitrov is under pressure to defend all of his points as he risks a further slide down the rankings. He’s 4/6 @ bet365 to win on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Berrettini has put together an underrated rise over the last couple of seasons, with the 22-year-old coming into Monte-Carlo at No. 54 in the world.

Berrettini, who is making his Monte-Carlo Masters debut on Sunday, won his first ATP title on the clay of Bastad last year and was also a champion on the Challenger circuit earlier this season in Phoenix, along with reaching the semi-finals in Sofia, where he beat Karen Khachanov. The Italian went down to Hubert Hurkacz in the opening round of Miami in his last tournament. Berrettini is 13/10 @ Betfair for the upset.

Dimitrov vs Berrettini betting tips


This looms as a great chance for Berrettini to take an eye-catching scalp. Dimitrov isn’t in good form, is lacking matches and under pressure to defend semi-final points. The Bulgarian was extremely rusty, especially on serve, in his loss to Thompson in Miami, and with Berrettini a much more dangerous player with bigger weapons, especially on clay, Dimitrov could have a real battle on his hands to survive on Sunday.
