Prediction and Conclusion

Both players are having a solid week in Monte Carlo and will play their fourth match against each other on clay courts. Djokovic has won all five of their previous matches on any surface without dropping a set against Ruud. It is a fact that neither of them is playing as well as they did last season, but the gap is still there, meaning that Djokovic will win this one in straight sets and get a chance to win his third title in Monte Carlo.
