Medvedev D. vs Tsitsipas (By: Iniestaone)
Third round match from ATP Monte Carlo between Medvedev (#14) and Tsitsipas (#8)
I was very wrong regarding Medvedev - Albot, but it was because Albot was a huge let down. He made his possibly worst match of the season so far, i can't remember when he was as bad as he was against Medvedev. He was serving at 52% and only won 32% of his second serve points, he looked like a complete rookie which was an enormous contrast towards what we have seen so far from him this year. Because of that victory Medvedev is now only a slight underdog against Tsitsipas which to me is ludicrous
Tsitsipas is a really good clay courter as evident from last year's clay court performances where he reached the second round after qualifying in Monte Carlo and lost to Goffin in a very narrow match, then he went on to the finals in Barcelona the week after where he lost to Nadal, he was 15/6 overall on clay last season.
Everything I wrote about Medvedev being a poor clay courter in my preview for his match versus Albot still stands. I don't see him having a chance here. Last year he defeated Tsitsipas 3/3 times but every match was on hard and they were all close, and we need to keep in mind that Tsitsipas is a couple years younger than Medvedev and he has broken into top 10 since they last played.
I really wanted to do a straight set bet here on Tsitsipas but due to the close nature of their previous matches and the bad blood between them (funny moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDX6K7t-JcE), I think its safer to go for a -2 games bet as its possible that Medvedev wins a set by one or two games margin but considering the surface we should see Tsitsipas dominate two of the sets, weather it'll be in straights or not remains to be seen
