Sonego comes into this contest at the back of a much-needed win over Marton Fucsovics in straight sets. That said, it has been a very disappointing season for the Italian on the hard courts. From the Tokyo Games till the recently concluded US Open, Sonego has consistently been exiting the tournaments in the initial rounds. Given his inconsistent showing on the hard courts, the 26-year-old has won only nine matches as compared to 11 defeats. That said, Sonego has a decent draw this week in France and should back himself to make a decent run.

On the other hand, Rune comes into this match after beating Bernabe Zapata Miralles in the previous round. Since he entered the tournament as a qualifier, the Danish player also had to beat Philipp Kohlschreiber and Thomas Fabianno in the earlier rounds. Although Rune has been playing most of the ATP challengers this season, his biggest breakthrough came at this year’s US Open, when he locked horns with World No.1 Novak Djokovic in the first round. Sure, he was downed by the Serb, but not before taking the match into a fourth set.

While Rune will be nicely warmed up after playing three matches ahead of this match, Sonego too will find confidence in the fact that he was able to comfortable see off the challenge of Marton Fucsovics. If the Italian has won keep his nose ahead in this clash, then he has to use to serve to good effect, like he did in the opening match. For Rune too, his serve and return game has to remain consistent. All said, the experience factor might just tilt the match in favour of Sonego.

Match Prediction: Lorenzo Sonego should win in sets.
