For several years now, Marton Fucsovics has been the top-ranked Hungarian tennis player. He achieved the best result in his career last year when he played in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, and his great quality is that he plays equally well on all surfaces. In the past, Fucsovics knew how to make a good result at Roland Garros as well. In 2020, he eliminated Daniil Medvedev in the first round and then reached the fourth round where he lost against Andrey Rublev. Fucsovics won his only title on the ATP tour back in 2018 in Geneva on clay. So far this season, the Hungarian has not had impressive results. He played 11 matches on clay and won six times. At the Masters in Madrid and Rome, he failed to pass through the qualifiers, while in Monte Carlo he was knocked out in the second round by Diego Schwartzman. This year’s Roland Garros started with a win against qualifier Geoffrey Blancneaux. It was 3:0 (6-2, 6-4, 6-4). He will be an outsider on paper against Marin Cilic, but it would not be the first time he made a surprise in Paris.

After being a permanent member of the top 20 on the ATP rankings for more than a decade, Marin Cilic has not been at that level for three years and was mostly behind the 30th position. This season, the Croatian has played some really good matches and tournaments. It all started with the semifinals in Adelaide back in January, and then he played in the round of 16 on the Australian Open where he lost against Felix Auger-Aliassime. At the masters tournaments on clay, he left a solid impression. In Monte Carlo and Madrid, he was eliminated in the second round by Taylor Fritz and Alexander Zverev, while he made the best result in Rome where he was eliminated by Cristiano Garin in the third round. Cilic came to Paris with the ambition to make a good result and thus continue his return to the top 20, although in his career he had the weakest results of all the grand slams at Roland Garros. He only played quarterfinals twice, while in the last three years he has not managed to go beyond the second round here. In the first round this year, he allowed only three games to Attila Balasz, but the Hungarian is back after a serious injury and the tournament in Paris was used only to pick up the prize of 60,000 euros given for participation.

Marton Fucsovics and Marin Cilic played against each other only twice and both times Croatian player won. In 2018, it was 2:0 (7-5, 6-3) for Cilic in Indian Wells, and the year before it was 2:1 (7-6, 5-7, 7-6) in Basel. Both matches were then played on a hard surface.
In the last few years, Marton Fucsovics have known to create problems for much more serious players than Marin Cilic on grand slam tournaments. It is hard to believe that a Croatian player can easily win this match, and it won’t be a huge sensation if he loses.
