Querrey's awful Paris record makes him a lay against Lacko

26May 2013

Roland Garros


The action begins in the second major of the year at Roland Garros today, with Roger Federer heading the list of stars in action, but Sean Calvert has identified an  opportunity to lay a seed who may struggle on Sunday..


The first round of the 2013 French Open begins on Sunday at Roland Garros, with 16 men's opening round clashes set for today.


We have Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Milos Raonic, Gilles Simon and Lleyton Hewitt on the card for today and Federer has an interesting match-up against the up and  coming Spaniard Pablo Carreno-Busta at around 1pm UK time.


Carreno-Busta was playing futures not long ago and it will be worth watching to see how he gets on facing a legend of the game when as recently as March he was playing  in a Futures in Spain.


Ferrer looks to have a relatively simple task in the form of Marinko Matosevic in their 2pm match today, but surely Sam Querrey has to be layed for a straight sets win  over Lukas Lacko today.


Big Sam has managed to win just the one match at Roland Garros lifetime and he's never won one in straight sets in his six years of trying. That said Lacko has a poor  record here too, with also just one win and although Querrey will probably come through I wouldn't put a single penny on him at 1.25 to win this.


Lacko is not exactly one to utilise his talents to the full and the concern with the Slovakian is him just turning up for the first round losers cheque, but if he  applies himself he has a real shot of winning this one.


Lukas has beaten Sam in both of their previous career meetings and he actually beat him here in the juniors in 2005, but on what Querrey would probably consider his  favoured conditions of indoor hard in his own backyard in San Jose Lacko beat him in straight sets, so he's more than capable of taking at least a set today if he puts  the effort in.
