THE PREDICTION

World number 25 Cristian Garin looked in better shape than we have seen for a few weeks in beating Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco in straight sets on Monday and the clay specialist should be targeting a deep run here in Madrid. World number 53 Dominik Koepfer is no pushover, though, and particularly handy on clay himself so this should be a robust and likely lengthy second round match between the two in their first ever meeting. 24-year-old Garin has five ATP titles on clay to his name already, including this season’s Chile Open, and if he plays like he did on Monday this should fall in tight straight sets but in-form Koepfer is well capable of pouncing on any lapse of concentration. An outright win for Garin here is the sensible option, with Garin to win in three sets a riskier alternative.
