Albert Montanes goes for back to back titles at the ATP Bucharest this week and is 7/2 fav at Paddy Power to achieve it.
The price is somewhat justified when you consider he is a career high 22nd in the world and has only been knocked out of majors by top 4 players. Montanes has a great chance to win this competition, he is by far the best player in the field coupled with decent form for the year. 2nd fav Florian Mayer (45th in the world) is a 8/1 shot at Bet365 while Victor Hanescu (52nd in the world) is 10/1 at Stan James to prevail in front of his home crowd.
Defending champion Monfils is coming off the back of a French Davis Cup semi win and a good showing at the US Open, a quarter final loss to finalist Novak Djokovic; the Metz Open is his for the taking.
