THE PREDICTION

Slovakian Norbert Gombos goes into this match as the heavy underdog against in-form Diego Schwartzman but he has already well exceeded expectations by making it to this stage of the competition. The 30-year-old accounted for 24th-seed Borna Coric in the first round before seeing off qualifier Jurij Rodionov on Wednesday but overcoming Schwartzman is a tall order right now. The Argentine reached the final of the Italian Open recently – notably defeating King of Clay Rafael Nadal along the way – and he has clearly transferred the confidence gained from that event to Paris, where he has registered two dominant victories so far. His speed and formidable baseline game make him a tough opponent for anyone on this surface, and this is likely to be a step too far for Gombos so Schwartzman should wrap this up in three sets.
