Join us while we go through the best tennis tips for this Tuesday’s action at the Monte-Carlo Country Club with Felix Auger Aliassime taking on Juan Ignacio Londero for a place in the second round.

<h2>Felix Auger Aliassime (WC) vs. Juan Ignacio Londero (q)</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Auger Aliassime - Londero Betting Odds"><strong>Tuesday, April 16, Monte Carlo</strong></a></p><p>Former junior world No.2 Felix Auger Aliassime has enjoyed an incredible start to the season and continues to rewrite tennis history books. The Canadian teenager became the youngest player to reach an ATP Tour 500 final at the Rio Open since the category was introduced in 2009. Auger Aliassime also made history in Miami after becoming the youngest player to reach the semi-finals in the tournament’s 35-year history.</p><p>The 18-year-old has been given a wild card into the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters main draw for the second year in a row. Auger Aliassime is ranked 33rd in the world after his incredible results in recent months but his ranking wasn’t high enough to guarantee a spot in the main draw at the entry deadline several weeks ago. Unlike other North-American players, Auger Aliassime considers clay his favourite surface. Felix won six of his last eight matches on red dirt, including victories over <a href="" target="_blank" title="What Makes Clay a Unique Surface for Tennis Betting?">clay-court specialists</a> Fabio Fognini, Pablo Cuevas and Albert Ramos-Vinolas.</p><p>Auger-Aliassime will open his Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters campaign on Tuesday against Juan Ignacio Londero. The Argentinean also made history earlier this season when he won the Cordoba Open. The 25-year-old hadn’t won a tour-level match before that event but that didn’t stop him from winning the first edition of the Cordoba Open in his home town with the support of family and friends.</p><p>Despite his incredible run in Cordoba, Londero has struggled to replicate that form in recent weeks. The world No.79 only won 53.85% of the matches since his victory in Cordoba and lost all his last five when priced above even money. Looking now at Londero’s campaign on this event, the Argentinean will make his first Masters 1000 main draw appearance after a 6-4, 6-1 win over Thomas Fabbiano in the final round of the qualifying in Monte Carlo. Londero broke serve five times and won 53.06% of the points played on the Italian’s serve to claim his 15th win of the season.</p><p>These two players will face each other for the second time in their careers. Londero leads 1-0 in their head-to-head after a three-set victory over the Canadian in the semi-finals of the Marburg Challenger in 2018. Nevertheless, Auger Aliassime is a much better player nowadays than he was a year ago. Felix won four of his last five encounters against Top 20 players and has always been an incredible investment in Masters 1000 events with an ROI of 36.80% in his previous 20 matches at this level. With this in mind, our suggestion is to stick with the big match player and add the Canadian’s moneyline to your <a href="" target="_blank" title="More Predictions &amp; Free Tips">betting tips</a> to reach the second round <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join William Hill &amp; Start Playing Today!">at 1/2 (1.50) with William Hill.</a> For those looking for a bigger payout, Auger Aliassime’s -3 game handicap <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Bookmaker!">at 83/100 (1.83) at Pinnacle</a> is also an interesting approach for this contest.</p>
