THE LOWDOWN

Aslan Karatsev defeated Jaume Munar in four sets in the first round to reach this stage in relatively impressive form. The world number 25 has enjoyed the best year of his career with his first qualification for a major coming in the Australian Open in January whereby he went on to reach the semi-finals. The world number 60 Jordan Thompson has also performed well in 2021 after a third round appearance at Wimbledon and his five-set tiebreaker victory against Gianluca Mager should give him a major confidence boost ahead of this.

THE PREDICTION

Despite an impressive and long victory in the first round, Thompson will remain the underdog for this. The 21st seed Aslan Karatsev will expect to make it past the second round at a Grand Slam for the second time in his career and in 2021. The Russian is the relatively comfortable favourite for this one.
