Reilly Opelka vs Jenson Brooksby: Preview
Reilly Opelka hasn’t been at his best in recent times. After making his way into the finals of the Canadian Open, Opelka has struggled to perform as per expectations. After a relatively good run at the US Open where he was knocked out in the round of 16s, Opelka had forgettable outings at the Laver Cup and Indian Wells.
Needless to say, Opelka would be itching to make a comeback on the court, especially after getting knocked out in just his second match at the Indian Wells Open. On the other hand, Jenson Brooksby has had a good run in the qualifying stage at the European Open.
He defeated Michael Geerts and Norbert Gombos in the two qualifying encounters in straight sets without much hassle. Jenson would also like to regain his winning form after delivering below-par performances at the Indian Wells and Ferrero Challenger Open.

Reilly Opelka vs Jenson Brooksby: Prediction
Jenson Brooksby has been simply sensational in the qualifiers. He will back himself to deliver similar performances in the main draw as well. However, his run might come to an end in the first round itself as Reilly Opelka will walk into the encounter as a firm favorite.
Prediction: Reilly Opelka to win in straight sets
