THE PREDICTION

The highly-talented Felix Auger Aliassime enters the US Open looking to make it into the second round for the first time in his young career after bowing out at the first hurdle in the last couple of years. The Canadian is still raw and often combines superb shot-making with some erratic tennis and his exit to Tennys Sandgren at the Western & Southern Open last week showed both sides of his game. His opponent Thiago Monteiro’s preparations for the US Open were hardly ideal as he had to retire through injury in the Cincinnati qualifiers last week and so there are question marks over his fitness ahead of this first-round match. Even if he is fully-fit though, he does not boast the talent that Auger Aliassime has and he will likely struggle to deal with the heavy baseline shots being hammered at him with regularity. If Auger Aliassime can keep the unforced errors in check, he should secure a straight-sets win.
