THE PREDICTION

This is only Vasek Pospisil’s second tournament since the ATP Tour resumed with his only other appearance being at the US Open where he enjoyed a decent run to the fourth round before losing out to Alex de Minaur. However, it’s fair to say that clay is not the Canadian’s favourite surface as he has never progressed beyond the first round at the French Open in six previous attempts. That looks like it could become seven here against 7th-seed Matteo Berrettini, who is more adept on the surface and recently enjoyed a run to the quarter-finals of the Italian Open. His forehand was firing in that tournament and he’ll use it good effect here in what is likely to be a straight-sets win.
