Monte Carlo Masters 1000
Although I'm expecting two of Djokovic, Nadal and Murray to make the final, I've tipped a couple of outsiders. I think with Djokovic's form and Murray's injury that it's probably worth doing that. Nadal is defending champion but he's beatable, imo.
Tsonga 28/1 EWAlthough it's very unlikely, if Djokovic or Nadal don't make the final from their half then I think it'll be Zverev that takes advantage. He'd face Nadal first out of the two in the QF and both their previous matches have been close despite defeats, with him serving for the match against Nadal in their first meeting and going to five sets in Melbourne this year so he's capable of competing with the Spaniard. Djokovic is on a bit of a downer and although I'm struggling to see Zverev beating him, it'll be their first meeting and Djokovic lost to Vesely here last year so who knows!
Murray may not come through the other half and Zverev has beaten Wawrinka and Tsonga (who are in that half) already this year.
For tomorrow as it's a Sunday start, I've gone:I am more confident of this bet.
He made the SF last year and is in Murray's half. He'd have to beat Wawrinka in the QF probably and that would be tough given their recent meetings but Jo's last win over him did come here and he'd have the crowd behind him whilst we know Stan is inconsistent. He's never met Murray on clay so despite the head to head being against him, that could be to his benefit and we don't know how Murray's going to cope in this tournament anyway.
Probably wouldn't win the final but worth backing EW I think.
