Hugo Gaston v Pedro Cachin Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 21-year old Frenchman, and the Argentine, who is six years older.
Gaston Upsets Australian in Classic Encounter
Gaston fought off cramp and a three game deficit in the fifth set to record one of the biggest wins of his career on Tuesday, to knock out the world number 20 and 19th seed Alex de Minaur of Australia.
It developed into a classic match that lasted four hours, and Gaston was quick afterwards to acknowledge the role that the French crowd had played in his success, supporting him all the way and giving him the strength to continue against adversity.
They had him helped him recover from going a set down to lead the match, and had made sure he kept going through a tough fourth set when his form temporarily deserted him and de Minaur claimed it without dropping a single game.
When the Australian extended that to nine games in a row and Gaston was suffering physically, it looked like his efforts would be in vain.
But he dug deep to recover, and actually went a break up, only to choke twice whilst serving for the match.
That meant the drama of a fifth set tie-break was needed to settle the match and it was Gaston held his nerve the better, meaning he could finally celebrate with the local fans.
Lucky Loser Cachin Beats Qualifier
Cachin was actually beaten in the third round of qualifying, but earned a place in the main draw anyway as a lucky loser.
He was fortunate then to make Norbert Gombos of Slovakia, the world 112, a man who had come through qualifying, but who is not renowned as a clay court player.
Making his Grand Slam debut, Cachin began well, two consecutive breaks of serve enough to earn him the first set.
However, he was the only man to drop his serve in the second, and the Slovakian levelled the match.
Cachin saved two break points early in the third set, but it was Gombos who dropped his serve and then again, and the Argentine was a set to the good.
Two more breaks enabled him to seize the initiative in the fourth set. Gombos recovered one of them, but, ultimately the deficit proved too great.
Gaston v Cachin Prediction and Tip
Gaston will be hoping for a deep run in Paris after his first round victory and, although Cachin is unlikely to make it easy for him, with the support of the local crowd again, the Frenchman should prevail.
