<h2>Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (WC) vs. Pierre-Hugues Herbert (7)</h2><p>Pierre-Hugues Herbert continued his quest for a first ATP title with a straight sets victory over former world No.4 Tomas Berdych. Herbert has enjoyed a stellar start to the season, claiming his fourth Grand Slam doubles title at the Australian Open and winning 80% of his singles matches in 2019 on the ATP Tour. Adding to this, the 27-year-old is guaranteed to rise to a new career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the Top 40.</p><p>Herbert will next take on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with the Open Sud de France title at stake. Tsonga advanced to his first ATP final since the October 2017 after a comfortable 6-1, 6-3 win over Radu Albot in just 69 minutes. As we predicted in our semi-finals analysis, Albot couldn’t find a solution to the Frenchman’s firepower and accuracy. Tsonga lost just four first-serve points and ended the match with an impressive average of 1.31 winners per game.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the third time in their careers. Tsonga won their two previous encounters on the ATP with Herbert still looking to win a set against this opponent.</p><p>Both players enjoy the fast court conditions at the Park&amp;Suites Arena and it will be very difficult for any one of them to break the opponent’s serve. Tsonga is one of the best indoor players over the past decade but he won’t have an easy task on this match against Herbert. The Australian Open doubles champion is playing the best tennis of his life and 2.60 to lift the trophy <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in Game with Betway!">at Betway</a> is a very interesting price. On the other hand, the Over 23 at 1.75 with Pinnacle is also a good approach in a match between two of the best servers in the game</p><p> </p><h2>Marton Fucsovics vs. Daniil Medvedev (3)</h2><p>Daniil Medvedev enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2018. The 22-year-old Russian won three ATP titles – Sydney, Winston-Salem and Tokyo – and ended the year inside the Top 20 for the first time in his career. Looking now at Daniil’s campaign on this event, the No.3 seed eased past Gael Monfils 6-2, 6-4 in just 76 minutes to reach the Sofia Open final. Known as one of the most promising young players in the game, Medvedev broke serve five times and won 73.91% of the points on Gael’s second serve.</p><p>Medvedev will next face Marton Fucsovics in the final of the Sofia Open. Fucsovics recovered from a set down to beat Matteo Berrettini, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3, and reach his second ATP final. The 27-year-old Hungarian struggled to find his rhythm early on but produced a tremendous fight to turn the match around. Fucsovics won 77.59% of the points behind his first serve and saved five out of six break point. On the other hand, the world No.47 converted 50% of his break point opportunities during the match.</p><p>The bookmakers are expecting a straightforward win from Medvedev with the Russian as the heavy favourite <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill &amp; Start Playing Today!">at 1.20 with William Hill</a>. Medvedev leads 2-0 on their head-to-head and has been in phenomenal form for the past six months. The world No.16 won the last 23 matches when priced as favourite, which makes it impossible to go against him on this match. With this in mind, our suggestion is to add Medvedev’s -1.5 Set Handicap to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 1.61 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">with Bet365</a>.</p>
