British No. 1 Kyle Edmund faces Alex De Minaur who made waves to the delight of the home crowd first in Brisbane where he reached the semi-final, and then Sydney where he reached the final. What has impressed most about Edmund this year is how he has worn the mantle of British No. 1 very well. Clay is his favoured surface, and it has shown with reaching the Marrakech final, and looking at his draw, he ought to be keeping an eye on the second week for sure.
While he ought to have enough to take out the talented Aussie teen, things get progressively more challenging for the Yorkshireman. Marton Fucsovics will be coming into Roland Garros with a lot of confidence having made the Geneva final, but conversely will it leave him a little spent?
While Fabio Fognini as the first seed he is likely to meet is likely to be a headache, it still remains a mystery what Fognini will turn up onto court on any given day. While he would relish a chance to face Marin Cilic deep in a Slam once more, it might be a step too far for the Brit.
