2019 French Open
Manav’s French Open Day 5 Tweener
Lucas Pouille $8700
Home crowd advantage for Pouille won’t be there as he’s playing another Frenchmen, but he is absolute class in clay. He can get up and down the court with ease. He will overpower his opponent and take this one in 4 sets at the max.
Dusan Lajovic $9300
We get Dusan for a price that is cheaper than usual and I’m all in. He has been killing the ATP 1000 and 250s in incredible form and gets an opponent who doesn’t have much experience at slams ever. I expect a straight set win out of Dusan.
Gael Monfils $10300
Monfils will be the most expensive player in my lineup just because he has the easiest matchup and probably will run through his matchup. He played an easier Daniel last game and crushed him, so this will be equally as brutal for Mannarino. Straight sets should get you about 80 to 90 points.
I don’t usually call someone this cheap the lock of the slate but Hsieh on clay is a completely different animal. She is going up against a Petkovic who is struggling to get in form. Unlucky for her, Hsieh is already in form and will crush her. 🔒
Fade of the Day
Fabio Fogini $8900
Fogini is a great clay player don’t get me wrong but he has a trap game in my opinion against Delbonis. I’m not saying he won’t win but I just don’t trust him at that price. Delbonis has been playing many tournaments and doing well so he is pretty confident and in form going into this matchup.
