Tennis Picks July 11th

The first day of a new week are generally much quieter as the Qualifying matches are completed and there usually are only a couple of matches to pick from.

With Bastad being a 28 player main draw this season, it means there are even fewer matches scheduled on the opening day from the main draw- today we will only have Tommy Robredo vs Filippo Volandri.

Stuttgart is a bigger draw so we have a couple more matches taking place from that draw and it is from Germany that I will make my first pick of the week:

Gilles Simon vs Albert Montanes: This is a pick I will make even though I have taken Simon to win the tournament in the outright market as I feel the Frenchman is being slightly underrated to come through.

Simon has been in much stronger form than Montanes this season, with the latter looking like he might be slowing down against the better players on the tour.

That is not to say that Montanes should be underestimated, especially considering he is the defending Champion at the tournament this season. However, Montanes has not had the best clay court season so far this year and has already been beaten by Simon in straight sets on the surface.

Simon is a very consistent player and I think that will be the difference between the two players again. He has a 3-1 head to head record against Montanes and I think he will at least move on to the next Round with a win on Monday.

MY PICKS: Gilles Simon to win @ 1.60 Pinnacle (2 Units)
