Opponents do not have face-to-face meetings.
Maykhrzhak won 12 matches on clay this year. Khachanov won two.
The Pole's winning streak is five matches in a row.
Maykhrzhak tried his hand twice at qualifying for Roland Garros, but was eliminated twice in the first round. This time Kamil got there directly, as he occupies 99-th place in the world ranking. The Pole got this position thanks to the fact that he won recently a challenge in Czech Prostejev. This, by the way, was the last tournament of Maykhrzhak.
In the Czech Republic Kamil confidently passed his rivals. He had some problems in the semifinal match against the Czech Lechechka. His representative from Poland won in three sets (4-6, 6-1, 6-2). Well, in the final, Maykhrzhak left no chances for Pablo Andujru (6-2, 7-6).

Khachanov has been unpleasantly surprising with his performance lately. In Rome, the Russian failed to beat Kasper Ruud (6-3, 3-6, 6-1), whereas in Hamburg he was defeated by Dusan Lajovic (1-6, 2-6). It is worth noting that Karen also managed to win one victory in Germany. In the first round, he defeated the German Struff (7-6, 4-6, 7-5).
In 2019 Khachanov reached the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. Then he beat Stebe, Barrere, Klizana and Del Potro. He was stopped by Dominic Tim, who defeated the representative of Russia in three sets. It is important for the Russian representative to defend his last year's result. Otherwise, he will lose his 16-th place in the ATP ranking and fly out of the top 20.
Khachanov's current playing form makes us doubt his confident victory. Even if the Russian defeats the Pole, he is unlikely to do so in three games. Maykhrzhak is now in good shape. He's also very good on slow surfaces, so we think Kamil will definitely give the fight to the favorite.
