Head-to-Head – Carballes Baena leads 1-0

  • Carballes Baena vs Monfils 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (2021 ATP Belgrade, round of 16)

 

Prediction and Conclusion

Both players are coming off victories over opponents who were dominating them in their careers, and that certainly gives them extra confidence for this match. Monfils has been very solid on grass through his career, with a 42-32 career record on this surface, while Carballes Baena is only 7-14. The Spaniard’s game is completely not adequate for this surface, and he has never won more than one match in a main draw on grass. Monfils has an impressive serve and moves much quicker than Carballes Baena, which will be more than enough for the Frenchman to win, probably in straight sets.
