This match certainly has a look of the future about it as Ruusuvuori faces 19-year-old Jannik Sinner for the first time on tour. Sinner continued his excellent rivalry with Karen Khachanov on Sunday by coming from behind to beat the 14th seed in a really exciting clash.

Given how well Ruusuvuori has played this tournament and that each of his three matches so far have seen him force a decider, such might be the case against Sinner. But expect Sinner to cruise into the Last 8.

Prediction: Sinner to win in three sets.
