Gilles Simon v Gael Monfils, Who will win this all-French battle at Wimbledon?

Its an intriguing battle in the 3rd round of Wimbledon between Gilles Simon and Gael Monfils, two Frenchmen who can counter punch and catch their opponents off guard

Gael is a flamboyant characters with all the shots. He is a brilliant tennis player to watch and his unpredictability and athleticism often leaves the spectators gasping with delight. Gilles Simon is far more organised in his play. He knows what works for him, ground strokes solid.

H2H it is surprisingly 5-1 in favour of Gilles Simon and that includes an 8-6 5th set win in the 2013 Australian Open. Gilles best result at Wimbledon is a 2009 4th round losing to Juan Carlos Ferrero. Despite his natural ability on grass Gael hasn't got past the 3rd round at Wimbledon.....

I think it is a hard match to predict and struggle to pick a winner. if having a punt I would instead go for over 40.5 games at 10/11. Sit back and enjoy what should be a great match
