THE PREDICTION

World number 83 Egor Gerasimov has put his Australian Open thrashing by Aslan Karatsev behind him with two assured performances against Andy Murray and Aljaz Bedene to reach the quarter-finals of the Open Sud de France. The Belarusian will meet young Spaniard Alejandro Davidovich Fokina for the first time here after the 21-year-old beat the fourth seed Hubert Hurkacz in an impressive straight-sets round of 16 victory. Both players have an upset in them and it is difficult to call a favourite here between two fairly similar playstyles in their first match together. Gerasimov has looked particularly good this week in Montpellier and he possibly edges this on experience but it might be safer to opt for at least a tiebreak in this match, with three so far between the pair this week, and leave it there.
