Tsonga vs Herbert predictions


Montpellier is no stranger to crowning local champions, with seven Frenchmen claiming the silverware in the last nine years - will it be Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Pierre-Hugues Herbert who joins the club on Sunday?

Searching for his first title in 15 months after knee surgery restricted him to just 12 matches in 2018, Tsonga has already been forced to battle his way past three fellow countrymen in Montpellier this week, registering tough three-set victories over Ugo Humbert and Jeremy Chardy and a straight sets triumph over fellow veteran Gilles Simon. However, Tsonga was on fire in his semi-final clash with Radu Albot on Saturday, crushing the Moldovan 6-1 6-3 in 69 minutes, losing just four points behind his first serve.

A former World No. 5 and Australian Open runner-up, Tsonga won four ATP titles in 2017 but saw his ranking drop outside the world’s top 250 last year as he underwent knee surgery. However, the 33-year-old hasn’t wasted any time in charging back towards the top, with his only defeats this year coming against the in-form Daniil Medvedev in the Brisbane semi-finals and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the second round of the Australian Open. Tsonga to win his 17th career title in Montpellier is priced at 1/2 @ Betfair.

Meanwhile, Herbert has put together a brilliant start to 2019 on both the singles and doubles courts. Herbert is of course no stranger to doubles success, completing the Career Grand Slam with Nicolas Mahut at the Australian Open and also winning the doubles crown with David Goffin in Doha to go 9-0 to start the season, while his singles record isn’t too far behind at 8-2, with the Frenchman making the quarter-finals of Doha, the third round of the Australian Open and now the final of Montpellier.

Herbert has dropped just one set on his way to the title match against Illya Ivashka, while he also beat Denis Kudla, Denis Shapovalov and former champion Tomas Berdych in straight sets, the latter a 6-2 7-5 triumph. With two runner-up finishes in Winston Salem (2015) and Shenzhen (2018) in his only previous final appearances, can Herbert claim a maiden ATP crown on Sunday? He’s 7/4 @ bet365 to win on Sunday.

Tsonga vs Herbert betting tips


I think this final will be an extremely tight affair. Both players are in great form and are serving brilliantly, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see one or more tiebreaks. It’s a very tough one to call - on one hand, Tsonga has put together a resurgent start to 2019 and has more firepower, but on the other, Herbert is in career-best form and has improved his backhand significantly, which was the primary shot that was holding him back. If Herbert can target Tsonga’s weaker backhand side, I think he’s a great chance of winning, and considering his odds, he’s the man to back in Sunday’s showpiece.
