ATP Monte Carlo Semi-Finals predictions

ATP Monte Carlo Semi-Finals predictions

Let's start straight away we now have our 4 semi-finalists but who will get to the final?

Ferrer vs Melzer - The fourth seed is in great form, dropping just 12 games in 3 matches and yet to drop a set. In the last round he found great form against 11th seed Troicki. The seventh seed has dropped 1 set and 22 games in the same amount of matches. Today he had a great match against the out of form second seed, Federer and won 6-4, 6-4.
Conclusion - I think Ferrer will take a straight set win over Melzer in a close 2 set match, including a tie breaker. However, after Melzer's upset in the last round you never know.

Nadal vs Murray - The world number 1 is in great form on clay as usual. He has relinquished just 14 games and not a single set on his way to the Semi-Finals, looking for a seventh consecutive title here. The third seed, Murray, was in abysmal form before this tournament but has suddenly regained form and has also dropped only 14 games and no sets. He is looking for his first title on clay and gain on Federer, who is world number 3.
Conclusion - Nadal is definitely favourite and I don't think anyone would bet against him to win this match as Murray is not very good on clay and his 0-2 winning record against Nadal on clay won't give him any more confidence.
