Monte Carlo Masters: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Having skipped competition in Miami, world number one Novak Djokovic makes his return to action at the Monte Carlo Masters, the first of three ATP Masters 1000 tournaments to be played on the clay this season.

Djokovic has won eight of the nine Masters 1000 events on three or more occasions and he is bidding to complete the set at the Monte Carlo Country Club, having triumphed there in 2013 and 2015.

Victories in two of the last three French Open competitions shows that there is little wrong with Djokovic’s clay-court credentials, but this 56-strong field is brimming with quality as Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and defending champion Andrey Rublev all carry a threat.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, champion in 2021 and 2022, and impressive Danish youngster Holger Rune are two other players that will feel that they can rightly make their presence felt.

Monte Carlo Masters betting tips and predictions

Stefanos Tsitsipas each-way - 28/1

A poor start to the season has seen Tsitsipas slide down to 12th in the world rankings, having once been as high as third, but these appear to be his favoured conditions.

The Greek ace has twice won this showcase event, triumphing in 2021 and 2022 before suffering a quarter-final defeat to Taylor Fritz in his hat-trick bid last season.

Tsitsipas has also finished runner-up to Djokovic at a French Open in 2021 - he made the quarter-final last season - and that highlights how capable he remains when armed with a slower surface.

The 25-year-old has still shown flashes of brilliance in the early stages of this campaign, reaching a semi-final at the Los Cabos Open and a quarter-final in Acapulco, so it is too soon to be writing him off.

The early draw isn’t a generous one with Laslo Djere his opening round opponent and Nicolas Jarry and Zverev in line before the quarter-finals, but coming through those tests should stand him in good stead.

So if there is a player outside of the so-called big guns to go well at a decent price then that looks like being Tsitsipas, who has made 11 career finals on the clay.

Francisco Cerundolo each-way - 100/1

Those looking for an even bigger-priced alternative could do worse than side with Francisco Cerundolo, an up-and-coming Argentinian talent with heaps of clay-court success.

Cerundolo is a four-time finalist on the ATP Tour, with three of those title deciders coming on clay, while he also reached the quarter-final of a Masters 1000 event on the slower terrain in Rome last season.

The 25-year-old reached the fourth round of last season’s French Open, defeating Fritz before going down in an epic fifth-set to Rune, and there is still plenty more to come from him.

With him landing in the same quarter of the draw as fourth seed Medvedev, a hard-court specialist often vulnerable on clay, it is easy to envisage him putting up a bold bid at what are lucrative odds.
