Bautista-Agut vs Millman (By: Stanioooo)
1st round match in Monte Carlo between Roberto Bautista Agut and John Millman.
It's 4:1 for Baustista Agut if we look their H2H stats- only the first meeting between them in 2009 was won by Millman, but all of their recent matches are in Agut's favor. The last one was during Australian Open 2019, where Agut won in five sets. The previous one was also on Grand Slam tournament in Paris and Agut won in four sets, losing the third one. One thing is very similar between them and it's the fact Agut started both matches against Millman in fashion taking the first two sets with big difference- 6:3 6:1 in Melbourne and 6:2 6:2 in Paris.
No doubt who is the better clay-courter in this pair and everything expect straight-sets victory for Bautista Agut will surprise me a lot. They haven't play since Miami, but Agut should be a little bit more inspired after taking a win against Djokovic there. He is a true fighter with not bad results during this season- QF in Melbourne+ QF in Miami and a trophy in Doha. The slower conditions in Monte Carlo should suit him much better in comparison with what happened in the USA during Miami and Indian Wells. Against Isner in the QFs in Miami he looked totally depressed by the bombs produced by Isner's racquet, but here against Millman this is totally excluded as an option. He will take part in a lot of rallies and I believe he will dictate the tempo of the match. The odds for -3.5 games AH are about 1.50 which is very low for me, that's why I will take the risk here and will go with -4.5 games AH for Agut. Odds about 1.85-1.90 are perfect, but really expect this one to be just on the edge. Hope Agut to start first on serve and to take a win something like 6:3 6:4- he proved he can outclass his opponent in the first two sets in their last two meetings on the biggest stages. Millman doesn't have a good tournament since US Open 2018, where he reached the quarterfinals and hope this row will continue in Monte Carlo.
