Gael Monfils, a Frenchman, defeated Alex De Minaur and Dusan Lajokvic in the tournament’s second and first rounds, respectively. He is well-known for his unusual agility and court coverage, routinely retrieving balls with slides, especially on hard courts. His ability to rapidly transition from defence to attack may catch his opponents off guard. Monfils occasionally shows that he can generate great speed on both wings with his groundstrokes, particularly his forehand, which can exceed 190 km/h.

Andrey Rublev was given a first-round bye in the event. In the second round, he fought back from a set down to defeat Croatian Marin Cilic. His ATP rankings are presently under ten, indicating that he has done extremely well this year. Despite his struggles in the last competition at the Canadian Open, he’ll be trying to maintain his normal level of consistency.

Monfils has a unique approach to the game. It’s sometimes difficult to predict what kind of play he’ll put on. Rublev, on the other hand, is a capable attacking baseline player. He’ll undoubtedly push the game farther and attempt to produce those powerful forehand wins. If we look at the championships, Rublev has won more than Monfils, so he may have an advantage, but it would be a fascinating match to watch.

Our predictions: Rublev to win in three sets.
