THE PREDICTION

This promises to be a closely-fought match between two players who showed plenty of form last week at the Western & Southern Open. Both came through the qualifying rounds and picked up some notable wins along the way so their respective games are clearly in good shape ahead of this opener. This represents Ruusuvuori’s first Grand Slam appearance and there promises to be more as the 21-year-old looks like a real prospect for the future with plenty of weapons in his arsenal. Bedene reached the third round here last year and has the greater experience at this level but this is undoubtedly a potential banana skin for the Slovenian so don’t be surprised if this goes the distance. Ruusuvuori should run him close but the youngster may experience some nerves towards the finish line so the prediction is for Bedene to nick this in the fifth set and progress to the second round.
