The action gets underway this Sunday at the Monte Carlo Country Club with Hubert Hurkacz and Borna Coric fighting for a place in the second round of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters.

<h2>Hubert Hurkacz vs. Borna Coric (9)</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tennis/world/atp/monte-carlo-monaco/coric-vs-hurkacz-3774860/" target="_blank" title="Check Hurkacz - Coric Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, April 14, Monte Carlo</strong></a></p><p>Hubert Hurkacz has enjoyed a stellar start to the season, reaching his maiden Masters 1000 quarter-final in Indian Wells and winning three of his last four official encounters against Top 10 opponents. The 22-year-old has made an incredible rise in the rankings over the past 18 months. Hurkacz started 2018 outside the Top 230 but after his impressive results in recent months, the Wroclaw native is on the brink of breaking into the Top 50 of the ATP Tour rankings for the first time in his career.</p><p>Looking now at Hubert’s draw on this event, the Polish No.1 will open his Monte Carlo campaign against Borna Coric this Sunday. The world No.13 loves to compete on the big stage with an outstanding 22-11 record at Masters 1000 events since 2018. Adding to this, Coric is one of the greatest competitors in the game and always a very tough opponent to beat on any surface. The 22-year-old enjoys the slow court conditions in Monte Carlo and despite his poor record on this event, the Croatian is yet to lose a match at the Monte Carlo Country Club when priced as favourite.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/rolexmcmasters?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#rolexmcmasters&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/mccc?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#mccc&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/atptour?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#atptour&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/atptourmasters1000?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#atptourmasters1000&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/tennis?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#tennis&lt;/a&gt;🎾 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/monaco?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#monaco&lt;/a&gt;🇮🇩 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/montecarlo?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#montecarlo&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/BornaCoric?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@bornacoric&lt;/a&gt; next week on Court Rainier III &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/EaoOoG7hxa\"&gt;https://t.co/EaoOoG7hxa&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/e7xuXdxHYU\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/e7xuXdxHYU&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— ROLEX MC MASTERS (@ROLEXMCMASTERS) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/ROLEXMCMASTERS/status/1116277127937175552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;11 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Hurkacz will make his first appearance at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters this Sunday while Coric will play at the Monte Carlo Country Club for the fifth consecutive year. As mentioned above, the slow courts in Monte Carlo suit Borna’s style and it won’t be easy for Hurkacz to hit winners against such a great defender as the Croatian. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Coric’s moneyline to your <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> at 63/100 (1.63) <a href="http://affiliate.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">with Pinnacle</a> in a match where his higher experience on these conditions should be the key to his success.</p>
