Thiago Monteiro vs Struff (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from ATP Munich between Monteiro (#112) and Struff (#51)
I was going to go for a Monteiro victory here but to be on the safe side, I'll go for Monteiro +3.5 games instead.
Monteiro has qualified to Munich and adapted well to the surface after defeating Ramos and Rublev in three sets each. He is 12/8 on clay so far this season and this is the only surface where he could keep up with Struff
Struff in turn played a long tournament in Barcelona that ended for his part just three days ago, he was excellent there as he defeated Dellien, Goffin and Tsitsipas before losing to Nadal 5-7 5-7 but it was so recent that I don't think he has made a good enough recovery to be at his best in the starting stages of Munich as well. Ramos had the same predicament, came to Munich to qualify after a long tournament in Barcelona and saw himself defeated by Monteiro who was knocked out of Barcelona by Delbonis immediately and had plenty of time to prepare for Munich.
I won't back Monteiro to win because this is home court advantage for Struff who always plays good tennis on German courts but the match picture i see in front of me for this match is both players having easy holds on their serves and Struff possibly winning in two tiebreaks, or 7-6 7-5.
