The Italian players always count with a very strong support from the crowd on this event and the same should happen this Friday at the Monte-Carlo Country Club. However, Lajovic won’t be an easy matchup for Sonego. The Serbian has an outstanding kick serve from the Ad side and will use that to open the court and exploit Lorenzo’s weaker backhand. Lajovic has the game to beat Sonego on these slow conditions and the value is on his <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/" target="_blank" title="Live Tennis Odds Board">tennis betting odds</a>. Nevertheless, our advice is to approach this game with cautious since is a huge opportunity for both players and Lajovic is not always the strongest player under pressure, despite his undeniable quality.</p>
