Khachanov, a Surprise Quarter-Finalist Last Year
Khachanov was a surprise quarter-finalist in Paris last year, beating his hero Juan Martin del Potro for the first time, before eventually losing to Dominic Thiem. That run helped propel him into the top ten in the world for the first time, but he has since slipped back in the rankings.
Prior to that event, there was little to suggest he would prosper in a clay court event, given that all four of his senior ATP tiles have been won on indoor hard courts.
Nor do recent results give much encouragement to his fans that there will be a repeat this year of his 2019 exploits in Roland Garros.
He was beaten in the first round in Rome by Casper Ruud of Norway. and, although he won his first-round match in Hamburg earlier this week, beating local man Jan-Lennard Struff, he was then soundly beaten by the Serb Dusan Lajovic.
Majchrzak in Maiden Paris Main Draw Appearance
This is the first time in the main draw in Paris for Majchrzak, the number two ranked polish player after Hubert Hurkasz.
He is best known on the senior tour for his achievements in reaching the third round of the US Open last year, beating both Nicholas Jarry and Pablo Cueva, but his greatest successes have come on the junior tours, where he has shown his strength in clay court events – 14 of his 19 finals on the Challenger and ITF circuits have been on that surface, and he has won eight of them.
And his most recent success came earlier this month in Prostejov in the Czech Republic, where he won the tournament there, beating the Spaniard Pablo Andujar in the final.
Prior to that he failed to qualify for the Cincinnati Open, and was beaten in the first round in New York by the American Ernesto Escobedo.
In fact, Majchrzak has yet to win a match on the senior tour in 2020.
