Matchup: Daniel Evans v Corentin Moutet
Pick: 8* Corentin Moutet Moneyline
Daniel Evans reached the semi-finals in Monte Carlo last week but it's worth noting the muddy conditions played a major part, the ball didn't bounce as high which made it more comfortable for him.
The drier conditions in Barcelona suit Moutet, his topspin forehand will be more effective while Evans will struggle with the higher bounce.
Moutet has fantastic variety and his ability to mix pace & power can cause Evans nightmares, he can create loopy topspin with his lefty forehand and he can target Evans one-handed backhand.
Moutet beat Evans at the US Open in quick, low bouncing conditions, there's nothing to suggest he should be the underdog in this matchup on this surface. Corentin Moutet Moneyline.
