THE LOWDOWN

CRISTIAN GARIN

  • After losing all four of his matches at the start of 2020 in both the ATP Cup and at the Adelaide International, Cristain Garin was able to put that poor form behind him to progress to the second round of the Australian Open.
  • Garin defeated Italian Stefano Travaglia in straight sets to claim his first ever victory in Melbourne having crashed out in the first round to David Goffin on his debut appearance last year.
  • 23-year-old Chilean Garin now faces Milos Raonic for the first time and he will need to be at his best to overcome the 32nd seed as he aims to make it to the third round of any Grand Slam for the first time in his career.

MILOS RAONIC

  • Milos Raonic has enjoyed plenty of deep runs at the Australian Open and in his quest to do the same again in 2020, he got his campaign off to a solid start as he proved far too good for Lorenzo Giustino.
  • Raonic dropped just five games on his way to a straight-sets victory and although he faces tougher tests ahead, it was a solid start for the Canadian who made it as far as the quarter-finals in Melbourne last year.
  • In the last five years, Raonic has been a regular in the latter stages of the tournament with three quarter-final appearances as well as making the semi-finals in 2016 where he lost a five-set thriller with Andy Murray.

THE PREDICTION

Milos Raonic produces consistent performances at the Australian Open and he got his 2020 campaign off to a strong start with a straightforward win in the first round. He faces a tricky test against Cristian Garin in this contest with the impressive young Chilean capable of causing problems but Raonic’s experience at not only this tournament but in Grand Slams in general should stand him in good stead and he is likely to prove too good.
