THE PREDICTION

Kei Nishikori came through a marathon first-round match against Britain’s Dan Evans on Sunday with the Japanese star eventually prevailing in a deciding fifth set and only time will tell how much that has taken out of him given that he has played very little tennis over the last year. The former world number four has had his injury problems and he suffered some disappointing losses in the run-up to Paris, but it’s just a matter of if he can reach a consistent level against his opponent here. World number 74 Travaglia is enjoying a decent season and reached the second round for the first time in his career courtesy of an impressive straight-sets win over Pablpo Andujar on Sunday. There is a potential upset on the cards here if the Italian plays with confidence but Nishikori is a three-time quarter-finalist at Roland-Garros and should ultimately have what it takes to claim the victory.
