• Gasquet, Fognini in French Open first round action

    Gasquet, Fognini in French Open first round action Richard Gasquet and Fabio Fognini will take to the court on Monday, opening their bids at the 2013 French Open.

    Richard Gasquet (7) vs. Sergiy Stakhovsky

    France's Richard Gasquet started this year in fantastic form, and the world No. 9 has amassed a 25-9 record on the season. But his performance on clay this spring has been less than impressive. The Frenchman's best result came in Monte Carlo, where he reached the quarterfinals, suffering a disappointing straight-set loss to Fabio Fognini.

    The Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky is in something of a slump at the moment. The one-time world No. 31 has seen his ranking slip to 101 in the world. He has won a couple of clay court matches this spring, but most of the matches he's played have been in qualifying.

    Prediction - Gasquet in straight sets.

    Fabio Fognini (27) vs. Andreas Beck (Q)

    Italy's Fabio Fognini should have an easy day at the office in his first round match against Germany's Andreas Beck. The German's ranking sits at a dismal 557th in the world, low enough that he's had to qualify for Challenger events. He has not won any main tour matches in 2013.

    Beck succeeded in qualifying for the French Open, so he'll have a small advantage of three matches on the courts. But Fognini is a good clay-courter, who already has a semifinal at the Monte Carlo Masters.

    Prediction - Fognini in straight sets.
