THE PREDICTION

Qualifier Dominik Koepfer produced an excellent display – arguably his best of the year – to see off the talented Alex de Minaur in the first round where he showed plenty of resilience to come through a tough third-set tie-break and his reward is a match against enigmatic Frenchman Gael Monfils. This marks Monfils’ first competitive action since February as he opted to skip the American hard-court stretch post lockdown and it remains to be see whether he can pick up where he left off. The Frenchman was one of the form players in the early part of the year, winning consecutive titles in Montpellier and Rotterdam, and he has only lost three of his 19 matches in 2020. There may be one or two signs of rust from the number five seed in the early stages of this match but his natural ability should soon kick in and take him through to the third round.
