This is only the 4th edition of the tournament, the 2015 edition was won by French Mathias Bourgue, who beat Daniel Munoz de la Nava in three sets. The top seeds in this year's tournament are; Albert Montanes from Spain, Carlos Berlocq from Argentina, Thiemo de Bakker from the Netherlands, Thiago Monteiro from Brazil and Alejandro Gonzalez from Colombia. My predictions for the quarterfinals are as follows; Albert Montanes vs Zhang Ze, Thiemo de Bakker vs Steve Darcis, Alejandro Gonzalez vs Thiago Monteiro and Mathias Bourgue vs Carlos Berlocq. I expect Albert Montanes to defeat Zhang Ze who hasn't been that impressive recently, to set up a semifinal against Steve Darcis. Alejandro Gonzalez should have too much for Thiago Monteiro, while Carlos Berlocq should triumph against Mathias Bourgue. Albert Montanes plays his best tennis on clay, and should defeat Steve Darcis. Both Alejandro Gonzalez and Carlos Berlocq are good players on clay, but I expect Carlos Berlocq to get through to the final.

Albert Montanes has played more tennis at a higher level, and I expect him to show his extra quality in this tournament. I see the Spanish player winning this title come June 19.

This particular tournament however is a fairly new tournament, only the second is being held this year from 9th to 15th of June. It was a Clay tournament and a $30,000 tournament which puts it in the lower level tournaments of the ATP, but nevertheless, there are players from all around the world who play.

France has been a part of tennis for quite a while now. We have not only seen various tournaments being a part of the ATP Tour and others, France has really stepped up the quality of its tournaments. Just last month the 2014 BNP Paribas Primrose Bordeaux; was held which was an 85,000 Euro Clay tournament being held in Bordeaux, France. It featured players from around the world including USA, Ukraine, Belgium, Czech Republic and even Turkey. France also has various players which have shown to be extremely competent, such as Julien Benneteau who is currently ranked 48th in the world rankings, and won the Primrose Bordeaux held last week.
