THE LOWDOWN

CORENTIN MOUTET

  • 21-year-old Corentin Moutet is definitely evolving into a player to watch this season after he overcame fan-favourite John Millman in the first round of the Australian Open in five exciting sets.
  • The current world number 71 fell out with the umpire, himself and the crowd throughout his gruelling match with Millman and he will have to play the villain of the piece from here on in in front of the Melbourne crowd.

MILOS RAONIC

  • 30-year-old Milos Raonic thundered down 17 aces in three straightforward sets to beat Argentina’s Federico Coria in the first round of the Australian Open.
  • World number 14 Raonic came off the worst the last time he faced Corentin Moutet in a straight sets defeat at the Doha Open last year, though he was struggling back then.

THE PREDICTION

This is a particularly interesting match-up between left-handed trick-shot specialist Corentin Moutet and the imperious figure of Milos Raonic. Almost a foot’s difference in height between them should make for a clash of play-styles that makes this match a difficult one to call in total sets. There are likely to be a few tiebreaks along the way with Moutet probably struggling with Raonic’s power serve and the Canadian likely to get caught short by Moutet’s tricks. Therefore pick this match to contain at least one tiebreak in a win for Milos Raonic, who should be able to stay patient long enough to overpower the frustration Moutet can cause on court.
