Ruud – Tsitsipas Monte Carlo Masters 14.04.2024

Monte Carlo Masters, Final, Sunday, 14.04.2024

Sand court stars among themselves in the Monte Carlo final! Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas battle for the title of the first clay court Masters of the year. For Tsitsipas, it would be his third in the Principality, while Ruud is still without a Masters triumph.

Both players outdid themselves in the semi-finals, taking out the top seeds in Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner. Who will take the 1000 points? In my Ruud Tsitsipas betting tip, I’m expecting a very close affair in any case. Therefore, the “Over 21.5 Games” bet from Tipwin is the right choice in my opinion

So far, Ruud has only won 250 tournaments, ten of them in total. Ten other times, however, he has also left the court as a loser in a final. The defeats at the French Open in 2022 and 2023 were particularly painful.

He also lost to Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open. It was also the young Spaniard who defeated him in the only Masters final to date. However, Ruud is particularly impressive on the red clay.

He has won nine tournaments on clay courts. However, his last triumph was more than a year ago. He is now back on the attack in Monaco, having beaten Djokovic in the semi-finals. In their sixth duel, he not only won his first set, but also his first victory against the most successful player of all time

Now Tsitsipas still stands in his way. The Interwetten app makes it clear that it is likely to be a close match. The Athenian is slightly favored at 1.75 odds. Ruud has been allocated 2.10. In comparison, a low 2.20 beckons for exactly three sets and a fairly high 1.60 for two rounds.

Before his win against Djokovic, Ruud had to deal with Hugo Humbert, Hubert Hurkacz and Alejandro Tabilo. Tsitsipas, who has now slipped down the world rankings, had one match more in his bones and therefore had to play in round one.

But after a difficult last tennis year, he has made an impressive comeback and, after two easy matches against Laslo Djere and Tomas Martin Etcheverry, has also beaten Alexander Zverev, Karen Khachanov and most recently Jannik Sinner.

After his success against the South Tyrolean at the latest, the competition knows that Tsitsipas is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the clay court season. After all, he handed the Italian high-flyer only his second defeat in 2024.

Ruud and Tsitsipas, both 25 years old, have known each other since their youth. Tsitsipas leads the head-to-head by a narrow 3:2. They only met in Los Cabos just under two months ago, with the better outcome for the number ten in the world, who played over 21.5 games, as in two previous matches.

In view of the close duel record and the course of the tournament so far, I, like the bookmakers, expect a match of equals. Incidentally, the only two clay court matches they have played were also over 21 games long.

Tipwin is one of the few betting providers that still has over-games odds in its repertoire. A 1.60 is waiting for the over-21.5 mark, definitely top odds. I don’t expect too many breaks. A set ending in a tiebreak would definitely not be a surprise.

Both stars have served confidently over the last few days and were able to quickly get into a dominant position in the rallies with strong forehands. By the way, you can bet on a tiebreak at Betano, where there is a large selection of tennis odds.

My Ruud Tsitsipas tip

The previous duels between Ruud and Tsitsipas have been tough. The matches on the red clay in particular have lasted longer. I think Tsitsipas has a slight advantage overall with a better first serve.

The Greek has also already won twice in Monaco. Ruud, on the other hand, is still waiting for a title beyond the 250 level. Can he break the spell on Sunday? I definitely don’t want to decide on a winner.

However, I am convinced that we will see a high-quality match with long sets after the strong matches of both players and that the spectators will be treated to at least 22 games.

My Ruud Tsitsipas tip: Over 21.5 games
