THE PREDICTION

36-year-old Gilles Simon will savour this first round match on Sunday at Roland-Garros and should be well-supported by home fans as he faces Marton Fucsovics for a second time. Simon was the victor in a one-sided straight-sets display last year at the Cologne Open but 29-year-old Fucsovics is in much better form this season and the Hungarian should be able to level that head-to-head record. Simon is riding a five-match losing streak and will likely lose this in three but take Fucsovivs to win outright here with four sets a fair possibility.
