After losing his three previous Montpellier semi-finals, can Jo-Wilfried Tsonga finally reach the final of the Open Sud de France on Saturday? The Frenchman takes on Moldova’s Radu Albot.

Date: Saturday February 9
Start time: 4:30pm local time (3:30pm GMT)
Court: Court Patrice Dominguez

Tsonga is playing in Montpellier for the fourth time in his career, and on each previous occasion, he lost out in the semi-finals- to Gael Monfils in 2010, Alexander Zverev in 2017, and Lucas Pouille in 2018, when he had to retire with a hamstring problem. The affable Frenchman is back in the last four again, following wins over compatriots, Ugo Humbert, Gilles Simon and Jeremy Chardy. Tsonga had a forgettable 2018, missing seven months of action due to knee surgery and dropping out of the top 200 as a result, but he has made an encouraging start to the new season, reaching the last four in Brisbane, and now, advancing to his second semi-final of the year in Montpellier. Can the former world No. 5 reach his first final of 2019 on Saturday? Back Tsonga to beat Albot at 3/10  @ William Hill .

Albot is competing in just his second tour-level semi-final, with his previous trip to this stage of an ATP World Tour event being at the Moselle Open in Metz last year, where he lost to Gilles Simon in the semi-finals. The world No. 90, who peaked at No. 81 in the world in April 2017, had won just one match this year (at the Australian Open) heading into Montpellier, but he has put together three very good wins this week, beating Philipp Kohlschreiber, Ernests Gulbis and Marcos Baghdatis, all of whom have been ranked inside the top 20. The speedy Moldovan is playing well, and if you think he is playing week enough to inflict more semi-final misery on Tsonga, he is available at 5/2 @ Ladbrokes .

Tsonga vs Albot Betting Tips

Albot’s main strength is his athleticism and movement, as he covers the court extremely well, but he doesn’t hit as big as some of the other guys on the tour, certainly not Tsonga, which is one of the major reasons why he hasn’t been higher than 81st in the world. Tsonga, it must be said, is no slouch when it comes to movement and athleticism, which should guarantee quite a few very entertaining points on Saturday, but the Frenchman should be too powerful for his Moldovan opponent in the end.
