Polish talent Kamil Majchrzak will look to spring an upset on Karen Khachanov on day 2 of the French Open. Yesh Ginsburg and Damian Kust make their predictions for this and the rest of the Roland Garros matches scheduled for Monday.

Yoshihito Nishioka vs Felix Auger-Aliassime

Yesh: Nishioka is a solid and consistent player who will force you to beat him. I’m not sure what Auger-Aliassime’s level is at right now, but he can usually raise it a bit at Majors. Auger-Aliassime in 4

Damian: We know the conditions are much slower this year and that won’t be to Felix Auger-Aliassime’s liking. Nishioka will keep the ball in play and always make him play the extra shot. This will be a battle. Nishioka in 5

Karen Khachanov vs Kamil Majchrzak

Yesh: Khachanov has been iffy at times since the return to clay, but he shouldn’t have any real trouble in this match. Khachanov in 3

Damian: This might go completely wrong but it’s a slight upset alert for me. If Majchrzak brings his form from Prostejov Challenger to Paris, then the erratic Russian could be in real trouble. Majchrzak in 5

Salvatore Caruso vs Guido Pella

Yesh: This should be a really good match. Sal Caruso was electric at the French Open last year, though he hasn’t yet backed that up with consistency. Pella, meanwhile, is just a solid player who is tough to beat. This should be very close. Pella in 5

Damian: A match between two opponents who really enjoy competing in slower conditions. Caruso should be in good match rhythm though, having played a lot more than Pella recently. Caruso in 5

Hubert Hurkacz vs Tennys Sandgren

Yesh: Hurkacz hasn’t been the most consistent in recent weeks, so he’s definitely susceptible to an upset here if he doesn’t play well. I’m not confident in going with him, but he is the safer pick. Hurkacz in 4

Damian: This could be exciting but as much as Hurkacz hasn’t played his best tennis in a while, he showed enough positive signs in Rome to make me think he’ll pull through. He also beat Sandgren at Roland Garros before. Hurkacz in 4
