Quarter Betting Monte Carlo Rolex Masters Predictions:
World number 1 Novak Djokovic didn’t tear up the hard court swing as expected in America and struggled in both Indian Wells and Miami. He will be looking to find form on the clay but will be fully aware of the enormity of the task at hand when it comes to Nadal. The Serb is 8/15 with Ladbrokes to progress from the top quarter of the draw and will have to find form quickly with the French Open looming.
Greek wonderkid Stefanos Tsitsipas continues to light up the ATP Tour and with his all action game endearing him to the next generation of fans, he looks to be one for the future. Some of his best results have come on clay historically and at 9/2 with Bet365, he could be a good punt to progress from quarter 1.
Russian hotshot Daniil Medvedev has established himself firmly in the world’s top 20 and he will be looking to kick on this year. He isn’t renowned for his clay court prowess but has the tools to cause some problems at 17/2 with Betsafe.
Clay court specialist Diego Schwartzman has struggled so far in 2019 but his game is well suited to the ‘dirt’ and at 10/1 with 888sport to reach the last 4, he could be the value outside bet in a congested quarter.
2018 French Open finalist and world number 3 Dominic Thiem will be looking to kick on from his impressive hard court run as he heads to his favoured surface here. The Austrian has produced most of his best tennis on clay and he is 13/15 with BetHard to win the second quarter and reach the semi-finals.
Another Russian youngster with high hopes is Karen Khachanov. The 2018 Paris Masters champion doesn’t look to have the ideal game for clay court tennis but his power is unrivalled and as the number 8 seed, he will be protected a little by the draw this week. He is 9/2 with MansionBet to win the quarter.
Belgian ace David Goffin is emerging once more as a consistent threat on the ATP Tour following a difficult spell with injuries and loss of form. His creative talents are evident in every game he plays and he could well be one to watch this week at 11/2 with Royal Panda to reach the last 4.
Slovakian Martin Klizan continues to perform on the tour without necessarily going deep in any of the major events. The cultured left-hander will enjoy the transition to clay court tennis and at 7/1 with Bet365, he could be a very valuable outside bet here.
German Alexander Zverev has endures a torrid start to 2019 and he has failed to be in contention at any of the events he has played. Clay courts are somewhat of an unknown with him but he certainly has the ability to start turning things around here. He is 6/4 with Bet-at-Home to progress in what looks to be a very congested quarter.
Japanese superstar Kei Nishikori has climbed the rankings in style once again this year and he looks to be back to somewhere near his very best. He is another man who doesn’t always produce the goods on the clay but he is more than capable at 11/4 with Betsson of putting a run together this week.
Croatian Borna Coric continues to contest the big events and is playing from number 9 seed here in Monte Carlo. He had a quiet hard court swing and will want to announce himself here for the clay court season. He looks a little overpriced at 8/1 with BetBright to reach the last 4 here.
Canadian teenage sensation Félix Auger-Aliassime took the world by storm in Miami, reaching the semi-finals and at 18 years of age looks to have the world at his feet. Playing on clay could negate some of his biggest assets but at 10/1 with Betfred, he could be a good pick in a packed quadrant.
Eleven-time champion Rafael Nadal returns to one of his favourite stomping grounds as he looks for a 12th Monte Carlo title. The Mallorcan took a break during the hard court swing and will be refreshed here. He is currently the heavy favourite at 1/4 with Ladbrokes to reach the last 4 this week.
Croatian Marin Cilic is a man not necessarily known for his clay court prowess and his lack of form in 2019 won’t be worrying Nadal but he is more than capable on his day and he is 9/1 with Ladbrokes to cause a serious upset in the final quarter.
Stan Wawrinka has shown glimpses of his best in 2019 and he is man capable of beating Nadal on any surface. The 2015 French Open winner can produce the goods on clay and he will see this as a free hit at 11/1 with Unibet to make an assault on the draw here.
One of the form men of 2019 is Roberto Bautista-Agut and the Spaniard will relish the opportunity to compete on the clay. He has enjoyed good runs in Miami and the Australian Open and whilst beating the likes of Nadal won’t be easy, he is better than the odds of 16/1 with William Hill suggest to progress from the bottom quarter.
