THE PREDICTION

This looks set to be a really high-quality first encounter between Cristian Garin and Roberto Bautista Agut after both players came through their first round matches with aplomb. World number 11 Bautista Agut beat Tommy Paul in straight sets on Monday to reach the second of the Italian Open for a fourth time in a row but the Spaniard has only made the round of 16 once at a tournament he as not enjoyed too much success. World number 22 Garin has already bettered his best performance in Rome with a straight-sets win over in-form Lloyd Harris and his defeat of Daniil Medvedev last week in Madrid is a good marker for how well the Chilean is playing right now. It is hard to call an outright winner for this match without seeing them in action together but Garin should be able to win at least a set here.
