THE PREDICTION

Jan-Lennard Struff comes into this first-round match with bags of confidence after beating Alex De Minaur, Denis Shapovalov and David Goffin at the Western & Southern Open last week and it took eventual champion and world number one Novak Djokovic to halt his run. He therefore looks to be a heavy favourite here against world number 106, Pedro Martinez Portero. The Spaniard is making his third appearance at a Grand Slam and reached the second round at the Australian Open back in January, but he did not make it out of qualifying for Cincinnati and will struggle to cope with his opponent here. Playing on the same courts that he performed so well on last week, Struff should navigate his way through this match in relative comfort so a straight-sets win is the prediction.
