Miomir Kecmanovic v Pablo Cuevas Head to Head
The pair have never met before. This will be the first match between the 21-year old Serb, and the man from Uruguay who is 14 years older.
Will Home Conditions Give Kecmanovic a Boost?
At the end of March, Kecmanovic reached a career high singles ranking, although that has drifted slightly since then, after what has been an indifferent time on clay since he reached the quarter-finals in the first iteration of this event, a month ago.
Then his run was ended by his compatriot, the world number one, Novak Djokovic, since when he has only played two matches and lost them both, losing to John Isner in the first round in Madrid and Aslan Karatsev at the same stage on Rome.
He chose to take last week off though, preferring to concentrate on practice.
Kecmanovic knows he can play on clay – he triumphed in the Kitzbuhel Open last September, his second senior ATP title, and he also won tournaments on the surface in his junior days.
A good run on home soil would give him a boost before he heads to France.
Cuevas Coming off a Semifinal in Geneva
Prior to last week, it had been a disappointing clay court season so far for Cuevas, who won the French Open doubles titles back in 2010, with partner Luis Horna, and who has six senior ATP titles to his name, all of them on clay, most recently the Brazil Open in 2017.
He reached the second round in Munich, but failed to qualify for both Madrid and Rome.
However, after coming through two rounds in qualifying, he went all the ways to the semi-finals before eventually losing to Denis Shapovalov of Canada.
Along the way, he claimed the scalps of Reilly Opelka, the world 35, and Grigor Dimitrov, the world number 20, who was seeded four in Switzerland, both in straight sets.
He will be feeling better about his prospects in Paris, where he has never been beyond the third round.
Kecmanovic v Cuevas Prediction and Tip
Kecmanovic will begin this match as the favourite because he is the higher ranked player and is playing in familiar, home conditions. However, he will need to be wary of Cuevas who showed signs of a return to form in Geneva.
