Monfils vs ATP by Tennisguy

My pick is Monfils to reach the final of the US Open. I know a lot of people will think I am crazy with this bet but the reality is that in this half of the table he has a real shot of managing this performance.

 

Monfils seems to have changed lately as he became more serious in his playing style and cut off those moments where he was just fooling around. That really seems to have improved his performance overall and that's mainly the reason why he defeated his opponents so far without breaking a sweat.

 

I realize that for him to accomplish this he must defeat players like Dimitrov, Federer and probably Berdych or Cilic but nobody can say that he can't do it. His next match is against Dimitrov who in the last match against Goffin dind't look so well especially on his serve. I honestly don't see Monfils loosing to Dimitrov.

 

So if he advances his next opponent would probably be Federer. The swiss does lead the h2h with 7-2 but in the last 4 matches Monfils has managed to win two of those encounters. Federer had some little problems in his last round against Granollers, loosing the first set but after that he was spot on. The thing is Monfils is a much better player than Granollers with a much better serve so in my opinion it would be a close match. Monfils really looks to be at the top of his game in this tournament so that's mainly why I think he has a real chance against Federer.

 

If he does manage to make a great match and defeat Federer his most probable opponent would be Berdych. Berdych does lead the h2h with 3-1 but Monfils did win their last encounter that took place in 2013 at the French Open. I think if Monfils manages to win against Federer he will be insanely pumped up for this match and he will deliver the performance of a lifetime. Also Berdych did have a lot of problems against Klizan in the second round loosing 2 sets there so he is not necessarily in his best form.

 

It might be a long shot and sure it might not pay off but I like to take these risky bets especially when I see a player performing at his absolute best during a tournament. That's what Monfils did so far and if he continues to be serious in his game he might just pull it off.

Well my bet by itself is a little bit crazy. For him to get to the final is one thing because I think he can defeat the opponents he will have. If he will get to the final we are talking about a totally different story because he will most probably face Djokovic and the serbian seems to be playing at his maximum potential so I wouldn't see Monfils having any chances in that match.
