Gael Monfils vs Nicolas Mahut Prediction

20120920-172828.jpg

To celebrate Gael Monfil’s return, I will be posting predictions on his matches for the ATP Metz Tournament. (Also known as the Open de Moselle.)

His second round opponent is Nicolas Mahut, who is ranked number 65 in singles, and #41 in doubles. It is the first time they ever faced themselves in their tour career.

Nicolas Mahut is well known for his epic battle against John Isner in the first round of the 2010 Wimbledon that took place in June. The match, Nicolas Mahut vs John Isner, and became the longest match of Wimbledon History of that time. Unfortunately, Mahut was not able to win even though he was very close. the match ended with a score of 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(7), 7-6(3), 70-68.

I predict that Monfils will win with straight sets of 6-3(or 4), 7-5.

If Gael Monfils wins the second round, he will be facing either Benoit Paire or Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round of the Open de Moselle tournament.
