Busta won the first victory in the French capital over the much-regressed Benoit Paire in straight sets. It cannot be said that the World No.17 demonstrated perfect tennis. However, in order to achieve a positive result, it was enough for him to simply competently take advantage of the opponent’s mistakes. The functional state of the Spaniard still raises some concerns as he has been unpredictable with only 2 wins in his last 5 matches.

Gaston managed to hold three fierce encounters in the qualifying stages of his native tournament, each of which he completed in his favour with great difficulty. Hugo outplayed very dangerous opponents, including the likes of Kevin Anderson and Lorenzo Musetti however in the foreseeable future it is quite predictable that the young Frenchman will be knocked out of the title race. Gaston spent too much effort at the initial stages of the tournament, which reduces his chances to be able to impose a fight on top competitors owing to fatigue.

The duo’s only head to head confrontation took place on the same courts a year ago which ended with Busta winning in straight sets. This will be their second ever encounter on the ATP tour.

In this duel, it is unlikely to come to a rout. Gaston is now on a powerful emotional upswing having won 4 out of his last 5 matches, therefore it would be safe to assume that the 21 year-old will have a significant resistance to a skilled opponent like Busta.

Busta, having won their first encounter on the same court last year, is strongly believed to be the favourite in their upcoming meeting but we should not jump to conclusions as Hugo is believed to have a strong fight to offer after his recent run of tennis.

Prediction: Carreno Busta to win in three sets.
