THE PREDICTION

It is an almost immediate rematch for Richard Gasquet and Alex de Minaur here after their second round fixture at the US Open last month saw the Australian progress via four sets. It could be similar fare here at the European Open as 2016 champion Gasquet has a strong 6-2 record at Antwerp and looks good for a set here at least. 21-year-old De Minaur has blown hot and cold this year but will be the favourite to beat Gasquet for a second time. However, he comes off the back of two straight defeats following his best run at a Grand Slam at the French Open and could start shakily in this one. For want of a result that might be an upset, this match should go to a decider before somebody wins.
