THE PREDICTION

This match between Vasek Pospisil and Philipp Kohlschreiber is one of the more even ties on paper in this first round. Pospisil won their only previous meeting 6-4, 6-2 but that came back in 2015 so the relevance is pretty minimal. It is Kohlschreiber who has the better record at the US Open having reached the fourth round five times in the last eight years but he was knocked out in the first round last year by Lucas Pouille. Pospisil has never gone past the second round however and he has struggled to make any real impact in this event. He has youth on his side but Kohlschreiber’s familiarity at Flushing Meadows could see him edge a close encounter which could go all five sets.
