Will Daniil Medvedev make his second final of the season when he takes on Gael Monfils at the Sofia Open on Saturday- or will flambouyant Frenchman, Monfils advance to his first final of 2019?

Former world No. 6 Monfils has had his injury problems over the year, but from time to time, the Frenchman pops up with these great weeks, and this appears to be one of them. He has been very good in Sofia, beating Viktor Troicki, Mikhail Kukushkin and Australian Open semi-finalist, Stefanos Tsitsipas, all in straight sets, to reach the semi-finals. Monfils produced some insane serving numbers against Tsitsipas- particularly the 28 of 30 points won on his first serve. He wasn’t too shabby behind the second, as he converted 57% of points behind that shot. Monfils hadn’t done much this season heading into Montpellier- in fact, he had played only one tournament- the Australian Open, where he crashed to American, Taylor Fritz in the second round, but he is looking good in Sofia, and if you fancy him to carry keep it up on Saturday, back him at 11/10 @ William Hill.

Medvedev is having a fantastic season, opening with a runner-up finish in Brisbane, then a fourth-round run at the Australian Open- his best Grand Slam performance, and now, a semi-final in Montpellier. He had a bit of a wobble towards the end of the first set against Robin Haase, when he failed to serve out the set, and went on to lose it, but he has been sensational since then, breezing through the next two sets 6-2 6-2, before blasting out the dangerous Martin Klizan, 6-4 6-1. Again, the serve was the fulcrum of that victory over Klizan. Medvedev put up a serving clinic, sending down nine aces and winning over 80% of points on both his first and second serves. He dropped just eight points on serve all match. Ridiculous. The Russian’s form has been a continuation of his rise in 2018, when he claimed titles in Sydney, Winston-Salem and Tokyo. If you think he will beat Monfils, and reach his fifth final, you should go for him at 8/11 @ bet365.

Monfils vs Medvedev Betting Tips

This one is very hard to call. Medvedev has been the man in form all season, while Monfils has suddenly found some form, and when the Frenchman is fit and playing well, he is one of the best players in the world. Given the way both men have been serving, particular in their quarter finals, breaks of serve may be difficult to come by. It looks like the sort of match that will be decided in two tight sets, or could extend into a third.
