TENNIS FREE BETTING TIP: Miomir Kecmanovic vs Gael Monfils
- Title : TENNIS FREE BETTING TIP: Miomir Kecmanovic vs Gael Monfils
Both Kecmanovic and Monfils had exceeded the expectations coming this far into the tournament but one of them will advance even further after they meet in Round 16 of the Australian Open
Miomir Kecmanovic had a negative record (17-27) last season finishing the year at No. 77 on the ATP rankings. With the successful start of 2022 he will probably come close to his career-high No. 38.
Kecmanovic should have played his fellow Serbian Novak Djokovic in the first round but since the world No. 1 was deported from Australia, Kecmanovic faced the ‘lucky loser’ Salvatore Caruso winning easily by 6-4, 6-2, 6-1.
In the second round, the 22-year-old defeated Tommy Paul by 7-6, 7-5, 7-6.
In the third round, Kecmanovic lost the first set at the tournament as he defeated world No. 26 Salvatore Caruso by 6-4, 6-7, 6-2, 7-5. The Serbian hit only 54% of his first serve but won 72% of those points and 62% of the points on his second serve.
After having an average season last year with an 18-17 record, Gael Monfils has started strong in 2022 with a 7-1 record so far.
The Frenchman won the tournament in Adelaide winning four matches without dropping a set. The case is the same at the Australian Open since he didn’t lose a set in the first three rounds.
In the first round, the 35-year-old defeated Federico Coria by 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 followed by a 6-1, 6-0, 6-4 win over Alexander Bublik in the second round.
In the third round, Monfils defeated Cristian Garin by 7-6, 6-1, 6-3 in just over 2 hours of play. He won 72% of the points on his first serve and only 54% on the second.
- Gael Monfils has won the only previous match against Miomir Kecmanovic
- Monfils hasn't lost a set yet at this year's Australian Open while Kecmanovic lost only one
- Monfils is 13 years older than Kecmanovic
If you look at the odds everything seems clear regarding the winner of this match but it may not be that easy for Monfils. These two met two months ago and yes, Monfils won but Kecmanovic is still only 22-years-old and far from reaching his prime. Monfils has yet to lose a set in Melbourne but he has been one of the least consistent players on the tour and that will be shown in this match. Kecmanovic has the game to be competitive in this match and will definitely win a set, maybe even more. Therefore, our prediction is over 3.5 sets.
