The first round of Wimbledon. We have some exciting matches for the first day and this will definitely be one of them as both French-born players will face off against each other. To have more insights on this ATP Ugo Humbert vs Gael Monfils match please check out the preview below.
21 years old Frenchman is currently sitting at 64th in the world and keeps climbing the rankings step by step. He had an incredible winning record last season with 69 wins out of 94 matches played but most of them were at the lower tier tournaments. He stepped up his game this year and mostly plays at bigger tournaments and Wimbledon will definitely be one of the biggest where Humbert has a chance to prove himself. It’s only his first season on the grass and it was quite average before Wimbledon as he’d won 3 out of 7 matches played. It’s hard to predict how Humbert will react to added pressure at one of the biggest tournaments of the year but we’ll see tomorrow.
On the other side of the court, we’ll see a 32 years old 15 racket of the world, Frenchman Gael Monfils. We’ve talked about inexperience on the grass on Humbert’s side and there is an absolutely different situation on Monfils side as he is playing his 14th season on the grass and holds 59% win rate. Gael hasn’t shown up on grass so far as he were eliminated in early rounds both Stuttgart and Halle. One thing we know about Monfils is that even he loves to entertain the crowd he is always giving his best at the biggest tournaments of the year and we will definitely see him at a better form than he showed us previously.
