Day 5: French Open Men's Matches to Watch

Milos Raonic vs. Jesse Levine (first match on Court 3)
Who doesn't love a little Canadian vs. American action? Although interestingly enough, although he's listed as an American player, Jesse Levine was actually born in Canada. Milos is the clear favourite to win this match, but who knows, Mr. Canadian-turned-American might find a way to give Milos some trouble. I'm going with Raonic in three sets.

Marcos Baghdatis vs. Nicolas Almagro (second match on Court 2)
Like the other Spaniards, Almagro is a pretty decent clay court player, but Baghdatis has never done so well on the clay. But regardless of his poor record on this surface, Baghdatis is rarely boring, and so this is a match I'm interested in watching. I'll go with Almagro winning in four sets.

Richard Gasquet vs. Grigor Dimitrov (fifth match on Court Suzanne Lenglen)
And now we come to a match between two highly touted players who didn't quite live up to their expected potential. I'm going to go with Gasquet pulling through in four sets, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see him crash out in straight sets either.
