Our panelists have predictions for every day 5 match at the French Open including Russian Daniil Medvedev taking on Laslo Djere. We have predictions for all of the second round matches

Daniil Medvedev vs Laslo Djere

Damian Kust: We still know very little about Daniil Medvedev’s form and whether he’ll have the patience to give his full effort on a surface he dislikes. Laslo Djere is a potentially dangerous opponent if the Russian isn’t ready for him, but also someone without exceptional weapons that could throw out Medvedev when he’s doing well. I’ll trust the World No. 2 to dig deep if needed. Medvedev in 4

Glenys Furness: Medvedev as the seeded player is the favourite for this match up. The pair met once before, 5 years ago and Djere won by retirement. However, Medvedev has improved much since then. Although the lead in to Roland Garros did not go well, the seed should have little trouble overcoming the Serbian in straight sets – Medvedev in 3

Daniel Evans vs Elias Ymer

Damian: Mikael Ymer beat James Duckworth quite comfortably, but the Swede hasn’t been even close to his peak form recently. Clay forces Dan Evans to change his approach and play a different style than he usually does on other surfaces. The Brit has been great at adapting to it recently and looked comfortable in the win against Francisco Cerundolo. Evans in 3

Glenys: Evans is seeded for the first time at the French Open, and has already made it further than previous years. The Brit has previously got knocked out in the first round. Buildup to the French Open was a little up and down, 3rd round in Madrid before Rublev defeated him, 1st round in Italian Open which was disappointing. Ymer failed to qualify for Lyon, but having made the 3rd round last year will be desperate to equal that spot. Could be a testy affair, but Evans in 4 

Hugo Gaston vs Pedro Cachin

Damian: Pedro Cachin is in the form of his life and this is a very, very winnable matchup. Hugo Gaston is known for showing his magic in French events in front of the home crowd, but he’s hardly a reliable player. You’d think Cachin has enough power in his baseline game right now to enjoy himself in this match, but you just never know with someone like Gaston, he might get into his head. Cachin in 5

Glenys: Gaston surprised the 19th seed in the first round. A five set thriller that ended with the Frenchman pleasing the crowd by making the second round, which is further than last year. Cachin will be a tricky opponent, having come through qualifying. The Argentine has nothing to lose, or prove as this is his first time in the main draw. Tricky to call this, but with the crowd behind him Gaston in 4 sets

Marco Cecchinato vs Hubert Hurkacz

Damian: Hubert Hurkacz has been great at defeating lower-ranked opposition on clay this year, and he should continue to do so. Marco Cecchinato was famously in the semifinals here four years ago, but he’s not having a great campaign. The Italian has the variety to make Hurkacz run a lot, but the Pole should be prepared to do so and is much stronger physically. Hurkacz in 4

Glenys: Ceccinato had a long five set match in the first round. Although in two of the sets he won, he didn’t lose a single game. Hurkacz eased through the first round match in straight sets. The Pole is the 12th seed, and his build up to the event was good. A defeat to Novak Djokovic in Madrid quarter final in a match that although he lost, was fairly close. Hurkacz in 3
