Madison Keys v Leylah Annie Fernandez Head to Head
The pair have met three times before, and Kecmanovic has won on each occasion.
Their first two matches were both in 2019 on hard courts – at Indian Wells and the US Open – but their most recent meeting was in March this year on the clay of Buenos Aires. Djere has yet to take a set of his Serb compatriot.
Kecmanovic Beats British Number One Evans
In reaching the second round, Kecmanovic has not only equalled his previous best performance in Paris, but in all Grand Slam events, in which his record is modest for somebody of his abilities.
And he got there with an ultimately comfortable win over the British number one Dan Evans, the 25 seed, who showed all his old fallibilities on clay during their match on Sunday, despite his recent improved results on the surface.
The Brit actually began well, breaking Kecmanovic in his first two service games and romping through the first set for the loss of just one game.
However, he lost his serve early in the second set and the Serb maintained that advantage to level the match.
In a remarkable third set, eight of the games played went against serve. Crucially for Kecmanovic, the only hold came on his side of the net, and he led going into the fourth set.
Evans though he had a chance to fight back when he then broke Kecmanovic early, but two successive breaks gave the advantage back to the Serb. The Brit fought back to level once more, but serving to stay in the match, he lost on his second match point.
Djere Overcomes Local Man Moutet
Djere has now made the second round in Paris for only the second time, after beating local favourite Corentin Moutet, the world 73, on Sunday, despite the strong and vocal home support.
The firs set saw three early consecutive breaks of serve, at the end of which Djere was leading, an advantage he maintained.
The second set saw both men break the other to establish a lead, but neither could fully capitalise and it went to a tie-break.
Moutet had four set points saved, but Djere had two of his own, before Moutet finally converted his fifth opportunity.
Again, the third set saw one break apace, resulting in another tie-break. There was none of the drama of the second set though, as Moutet handed the edge to his opponent with two consecutive dropped serves, and Djere duly closed it out.
The fourth set went with serve until the pair swapped breaks. Moutet saved two break points, then had a set point of his own but could not make it count.
And he regretted that miss when he dropped serve again next game.
He did not get another chance as Djere served out to love.
Miomir Kecmanovic v Laslo Djere Prediction and Tip
Although the bookmakers have Djere as the favourite for this match, their head to head record does not support such a prediction, especially as Kecmanovic won their previous encounter on clay earlier this year.
