ATP Paris Masters Day 2 Predictions Including Laslo Djere vs Kevin Anderson

Day 2 of the Paris Masters 2020 will be a high octane affair with 15 matches scheduled. We preview and predict all ten Round of 64 matches and five Round of 32 matches scheduled for Day 2. We spread the 15 matches across four articles. The other three feature Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Ugo Humbert, Stan Wawrinka vs Daniel Evans, and Norbert Gombos vs David Goffin.

ATP Paris Masters Day 2 Predictions

Round of 32

Marin Cilic vs Corentin Moutet

Head to head – Cilic 1-0 Moutet

Cilic easily won the pair’s matchup at the Australian Open this year. The 2014 US Open champion hasn’t been in great form recently, but he was very impressive in defeating Felix Auger-Aliassime in the first round. Moutet is constantly improving, but he doesn’t yet have a way to respond to the Croatian’s power.
Prediction: Cilic in 3

Matteo Berrettini vs Marcos Giron

Head to head – First Meeting

Giron is improving, but he is nowhere near the caliber of player that it would take to upset Berrettini here. As long as the Italian is on his game, he should have no issues blasting through the American in this one.
Prediction: Berrettini in 2

Round of 64

Aljaz Bedene vs Milos Raonic

Head to head – Raonic 4-0 Bedene
Milos Raonic’s fitness remains a concern after he retired out of the European Open in Antwerp but if he’s fit, the Canadian won’t be too fazed about facing Aljaz Bedene. Raonic has a 4-0 head to head lead over Bedene with his most recent win coming in Antwerp last month. The indoor conditions should suit Raonic’s big serves and flat forehands. Expect Raonic to power through to the round of 32.
Prediction: Raonic in 2

Laslo Djere vs Kevin Anderson

Head to head – Anderson 2-0 Djere
Laslo Djere plays his first tournament since winning the title in Sardinia and has come through qualifying with relative ease. However his first round opponent, Kevin Anderson is someone who can give anyone a tough battle. The South African’s fitness is a question mark as he retired midway against Andrey Rublev in Vienna last week. A fully fit Anderson is a handful and if his serve is firing as it did in Vienna, there’s very little Djere can do. Anderson has already beaten Djere in both their previous meetings and holds a clear edge in terms of power from the baseline. If Anderson is back to his full fitness, he should be able to over power Djere on the incredibly fast surfaces in Paris.
Prediction: Anderson in 2
