Radu Albot vs Gregoire Berrere
2018 French Open R128
27/05/18 @ 7:10pm AEST
Roland Garros 2018 starts tonight with a slew of exciting games in the Round of 128. Taking to the clay in this match is Moldovan, Radu Albot, against a hometown youngster, Gregoire Barrere.
Albot is the more experienced player here, 4 years senior of Barerre, and has had significantly more exposure to larger tournaments and high-pressure scenarios.
The Frenchman, Barrere, played well in Bordeaux, claiming victories against Andreozzi, Polansky and De Greef, however – even as a hometown favourite – the pressure of winning a match at a Slam could be difficult to overcome.
Oddsmakers are setting a high $1.80 figure on Albot, likely due to his recent poor form and string of losses on clay, however, when the Moldovan is on-form, he’s hard to stop.
