I will start the day with a tennis tip as Monfils will face Goffin as favourite. David Goffin won his first two matches of the tournament against Benneteau (dropping a set) and Pella (dropping two sets). Gael Monfils, on the other hand, won in straight sets against Chardy and in 5 sets against Donald Young.
Monfils is the favourite player to win today but I think that it's very hard to predict a winner. This will be a very balanced match with 4 or 5 sets played.
These two players met 3 times and both were 3 sets matches (not Grandslam matches). Both of these matches were tight and I'm expecting a similiar one today.
After the big injury, Goffin is finally playing decent but I'm not impressed that much as he won against very bad opponents...on the other hand, Monfils was very tired in the last match against Young. Monfils, on the other hand, is not playing the same high level of tennis that he had last year here in US OPEN. In fact, Monfils' serve is not that strong and he is not 100% focused as he showed especially against Donald Young.
Both are coming from an hard battle. Goffin's last match was long 4:26 hours while Monfils played only one hour less but that was still a 5 sets match. I think that odds for a winner should be more balanced but I still prefere to bet on over in sets here.
I will bet on over 3,5 sets.
