The first Grand Slam of the year has passed, but the tennis tournaments continue with the smaller races, and we come with a tip from the match between Slovenian Aljaz Bedene and Canadian Vasek Pospisil, a match in the first round of the Montpellier tournament, which is scheduled for the third day on the number 1 ground and which will start after 16.00.
Aljaz Bedene: Team shape, news and statistics
◾️Aljaz Bedene had a pretty good start to the year, but with oscillations.
◾️If the game was a relatively good one, the results were not up to expectations.
◾️The Slovenian managed to make a quarter-final in Doha, but was then eliminated from the first match in Adelaide.
◾️That’s right, he met a fit player in Australia, Tommy Paul, but the game didn’t convince him at all.
◾️Then at the Australian Open, Bedene’s route was not very long, the Slovenian was eliminated in the second round by Latvian Ernests Gulbis, another fit player who came from qualifying.
◾️Certainly Aljaz set out to do more in Melbourne, but the counts made did not match those on the ground. One after the other, the debut of the new season was neither bad, nor high, so Bedene is looking to get the best results yet.
◾️The next tournament in which the Slovenian will take part is the one in France, from Montpellier, where Bedene will face Vasek Pospisil in the first round.
◾️Aljaz will not have an easy match at all, because the player from Canada is feeling good on fast surfaces and especially in room conditions.
◾️I think we will have a close match and it is not excluded that we have at least one set decided in the tie-break.
Vasek Pospisil: Team shape, news and statistics
◾️Vasek Pospisil started the new season well. As he finished the previous one, the Canadian has put his solid game on the hard and hopes to return to the top 100.
◾️Sure, Vasek has had several injuries, but Pospisil easily returns to the desired level and if will continue on the same slope, has every chance to achieve the desired results.
◾️The Canadian made good progress in Auckland, where he started from qualifying, got on the main board and was eliminated in the second round, after a match, by the nationalist Denis Shapovalov.
◾️It was his best tournament this year for the Canadian, who, as I told you, is showing signs of recovery.
◾️In Melbourne, the adventure was not a long one, with Vasek being eliminated from the opening round by Croatian Ivo Karlovic. Of course, also at the end of a close match and with sets decided at tie-break.
◾️Returning to Europe, Vasek will participate in the Montpellier tournament, where he has not had a lucky draw.
◾️The Canadian will meet Aljaz Bedene in the first round, one of the good players in the circuit.
◾️Even with the second chance, the Canadian will not give up without a fight and I tend to believe that the game is open to any result.
◾️It is not excluded that we even have a decisive set.

Tennis Prediction of the Day Aljaz Bedene vs Vasek Pospisil
A match between the two players is announced. Both players serve very well, and in room conditions, the more effective this weapon is.
In return, Bedene has a better idea, but as the Canadian serves, I do not see him succeed too many breaks Slovenian.
On the other hand, the return is not at a higher level, so I see a game with games that will run quickly, so my bet goes on at least 22 games played.
