Position in the seedling list: 14

In his career Monfils has won eight tournaments at ATP level, seven of them on hard court. Monfils has a strong impact and accordingly, the fast surfaces are more likely his home than the clay court. Monfils is also a player who does a great deal of running work and brings back a few balls, but from the game he often misses the slaps and thus he has to invest a lot of power to win against a strong opponent game a point. For this reason, during the second week of the Tournament Grand Slam tournaments, the power is a bit too low. In 2008 in Paris and 2016 at the US Open, he celebrated his greatest success at Grand Slam level, as he was able to reach the semi-finals.
2019 is a very satisfying year for the 32-year-old Frenchman so far. Of his 28 games on the ATP Tour, he has won 21. Among other things, he celebrated in Rotterdam a tournament victory. Before the French Open, it was not so easy on clay court. In Roma, for example, he was beaten in the first game of Albert Ramos-Vinolas in two straight sets. On the way to the round of 16 he had been lucky in Paris so far. Taro Daniel, Adrian Mannarino and Antoine Hoang are not necessarily the absolute top opponents. Monfils did not have a counterparty to the collar of a Pablo Cuevas. Therefore, the three clear 3: 0 sentence successes should not be overstated. Monfils has not been called yet, but against Thiem the Frenchman will rarely be able to dictate the pace, but rather will be pushed into the defensive. Soberly, the class difference between Thiem and Monfils is much larger than the odds suggest. The results of Monfils in the first three rounds clearly push the odds, but value is by no means to be found in odds around / at 3.00.
