Prediction and Conclusion

This will be an epic battle between two veteran players who had great results as juniors in Wimbledon but never transferred that to the senior tournament. As the window is closing for both of them, they see a great opportunity in this match. Both Monfils and Dimitrov have rejuvenated their careers and seem ready to make a lot of noise at Wimbledon. It’s been 8 years since their last match, and Monfils was very dominant in their previous head-to-head matches. At the moment, Dimitrov is the better player, but he barely survived the previous match, coming back from two sets down. Given all that, this will be a long battle that will go over 39.5 games in total.
