As mentioned in the introduction to this piece, Facundo Bagnis is something of a pure clay courter. Argentinians are born and bred on the red dirt and often specialise on this surface. Indeed, some players never play on hard court, and especially not grass, until they reach a high enough ranking to play ATP Tour events. To put this into context, Bagnis has played 844 professional matches on record, 751 of them have been on clay, 89%.

Bagnis’ record on hard is poor as well, won 33, lost 50. By contrast Dan Evans is very proficient on the surface. Whilst grass would be his favourite surface, Evans certainly uses his skillset well enough to be able to move Bagnis around the court. Indeed, these two met at this stage of the 2017 Australian Open and Evans won in straight sets on that occasion.

At that time Bagnis was actually ranked higher than Evans (#55 v #65 respectively) but now the shoe is most definitely on the other foot. Though both men are approaching the twilight of their careers at 32, Evans has seemed to improve with age and his repertoire of strokes should see the man from the Midlands record a comfortable victory here.

Scoreline prediction: Bagnis 0-3 Evans
