THE PREDICTION

This should be a relatively straightforward encounter between Belarus’ Egor Gerasimov and Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime. The pair met earlier this year before the suspension of the season due to covid-19 where Auger-Aliassime beat Gerasimov in straight-sets and the world number 22 is in arguably better shape since the restart. Auger-Aliassime received a bye to the round of 16 this week but reached the final of the sister tournament last Sunday against Alexander Zverev, where he lost his sixth ATP final. Auger-Aliassime will have a point to prove in this unusual chance to play a second week on the same court and should be fancied as a contender for the title this time. He should beat Gerasimov in straight sets here to get a fresh campaign underway.
