Gael Monfils meets Joao Sousa in the first-round of the 2020 Rotterdam Open.
Monfils has just come off winning his 9th ATP Title by beating Vasek Pospisil in straight sets in Montpellier. Monfils is an incredible talent, what has lacked in his game is his consistency. Monfils could have been a Grand Slam champion if he applied himself more, but in recent years we can see him being more determined to win big matches. Monfils is fun to watch, his flamboyant style of play makes you watch every point in case you miss something.
Joao Sousa is a solid player, potentially the best Portuguese tennis player ever. The Portuguese is great, but mostly on clay. Sousa struggles one hard courts, and will have to bring his best game if he wants to be able to challenge in these tournaments throughout 2020. Will he be able to adapt his game to hard courts or will he remain only a clay-court player?
These two players have met 4 times before, with Monfils winning 3 of those encounters. This match is a simple prediction, Monfils will win this match with ease. Monfils has some momentum behind him, and will dictate play from the start. Sousa will have no chance of even winning a set here. Monfils all day.
