BRAYDEN SCHNUR

  • After appearing at Wimbledon - the first Grand Slam of his career - Brayden Schnur backed that up at Flushing Meadows for his first appearance in the US Open but faces a huge test in this opening game.
  • The world #92 is 4-6 on the ATP Tour this year after spending much of his time on the Challenger Tour with the step up in class something he will take time to get used to although he will have little time to think about that here.
  • Marcos Baghdatis disposed of him in straight sets at Wimbledon but he may come on for that experience although it is imperative he gets off to a good start against Benoit Paire or he could be over-awed once again.

BENOIT PAIRE

  • Benoit Paire has reached the fourth round in his previous two Grand Slams at Wimbledon and Roland-Garros and was unlucky to face Dominic Thiem in the first round of the Australian Open, to whom he lost in five sets.
  • Paire seems to favour the clay surface and has won two ATP titles this year on clay in Morocco and his native France before losing out at Roland-Garros in five sets to Kei Nishikori.
  • 30-year-old Paire is entering his ninth US Open and previously reached the fourth rounf in 2015 before losing out to Roger Federer in the second round last year.

THE PREDICTION

Benoit Paire has done himself no harm in his last two Grand Slam appearances and will have ambitions of at least matching his achievements at Wimbledon and Roland-Garros here. The Frenchman heads to Flushing Meadows as the world #26 after reaching the fourth round in both of those tournaments and although he looks strong on clay, he should have too much guile for Brayden Sccnur in this contest.
