The 20-year-old tennis player from the Czech Republic is constantly improving his ranking from season to season. Jiri Lehecka is currently 77th in the ATP rankings and this will be his debut at Roland Garros.
He did not play in the strongest clay court tournaments that preceded this Grand Slam but he played in Munich and Belgrade. He achieved the best result at the challenger in Mauthausen (Austria), where he qualified for the finals, but failed to win the trophy.
Lehecka played 21 matches on clay this season, and won 13 of them. It should be emphasized that this is not his favorite type of court, and that he recorded his best results on a hard court. It remains to be seen how he will manage on clay in the matches that are played in five sets.

Although his form has been declining in recent years, David Goffin has noted in the previous two months that he has not yet retired. The Belgian participated in all three Masters on clay, and he played the best in Madrid. First, he successfully passed the qualifications in the capital of Spain, and then he defeated Karatsev and Van De Zandschulp in the main draw.
In the end, he played his best match in the quarterfinals against Rafael Nadal. Although he lost 2: 1, he exhausted the Spaniard. Goffin did not use four match points in the tie break of the third set, but he was close to a sensation.
He is coming to the capital of France with the intention of repeating the result from 2016 when he qualified for the quarterfinals, which is the best result in this tournament in his career.

Jiri Lehecka vs. David Goffin Prediction
We think that Goffin is the favorite in this duel. Lehecka still does not have enough experience in Grand Slams and we think that is the Belgian’s main advantage.
Prediction: David Goffin -4.5 games
