THE PREDICTION

Kei Nishikori continues to fly under the radar but 2019 was one of his most consistent years having reached the quarter-finals in three Grand Slams including the French Open. He has reached that stage in three of the last five and the other two saw him reach the fourth round. He kicks off another campaign at Roland Garros against Brit Dan Evans against whom he has a 2-1 head-to-head advantage. Evans does not have much pedigree at this event with his second-round appearance last year the only time he has featured in the main draw. The draw this year has not been kind to him however and Nishikori should have too much for him. Evan could well take a set, but otherwise Nishikori should ease to victory.
