THE PREDICTION

Brandan Nakashima pulled off one of the upsets of the first round as he shocked Paolo Lorenzi in straight sets. The 19-year-old was making his Grand Slam debut against the Italian who is twice his age but he showed no sign of nerves as he produced a superb performance. He has earned the right to play Alexander Zverev in the second round and this will be a major test for the youngster. Zverev overcame Kevin Anderson in a tough first-round encounter but that will only serve to sharpen Zverev up after the long break in action. It is hard to make a case for Nakashima taking a set off Zverev but the German is prone to lapses in concentration so it would be no surprise if he did, but Zverev should ease to victory in the end.
