Marcos Giron vs Gael Monfils Preview
Marcos Giron has been very impressive at the Sofia Open so far. The American endured a tough match in his first round against Spain’s Jaume Munar as it took him three sets to beat his rival. However, he subsequently claimed a shocking victory over Alex De Minuar in a very close round of 16 contest, with the American downing his opponent by 7-6, 7-6.
The 28-year-old continued his good momentum on Friday as he eased past John Millman by 6-4, 6-2.
Marcos Giron reached the third round at the 2021 French Open for the first time in his career before falling to Cristian Garin in four sets. His subsequent outing in Halle saw him making it to the quarterfinals where he eventually lost to Felix Auger Aliassime.
The 28-year-old also advanced to the quarterfinals at the Moselle Open but suffered a three-set defeat against Peter Gojowczyk to get himself out of the tournament.
Gael Monfils, meanwhile, has endured a poor season in general. The 35-year-old went out of the French Open from the second round, losing to Mikael Ymer. His Halle Open campaign was ended in the initial round by Lloyd Harris who won in straight sets. The French tennis player suffered another opening round humiliation in Eastbourne when qualifier Max Purcell defeated him in three sets, but his later displays at the Canadian Open and Western & Southern Open were relatively better.
Monfils cruised past Gianluca Mager at the Sofia Open on Friday, defeating his opponent 6-2, 6-2 to qualify for the semifinal.
