Dimitrov kicked off his campaign with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Aleksandar Kovacevic of America in the first round.

Up against Fabian Marozsan in the second round, Dimitrov played the perfect first set, winning it without dropping a single game. The pair exchanged a couple of games at the start of the second set, but another break in favor of the Bulgarian helped him race to a two-set lead. A break in the fifth game of the final set, courtesy of a brilliant cross-court forhand helped seal a 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 win for Dimitrov.

Bergs, on the other hand, plowed through the qualifiers, beating Clement Chidekh, Joris De Loore, and Mathias Bourgue to seal a berth in the main draw.

He upset 24th seed and Italian Open semi-finalist Alejandro Tabilo in the opening round to a 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-2, 6-2 scoreline. Bergs sealed another comeback victory in the second round, getting the better of Maximilian Marterer in four sets 3-6, 6-3, 6-1, 6-3.

Grigor Dimitrov heads into his third-round encounter with Zizou Bergs as the clear favorite, but there is no discounting a surprise from the Belgian who's been in great form recently.

Dimitrov has been in scintillating form so far in the French capital so far. He's excelled on both wings and has been lethal on serve. His frequent approaches to the net have also paid dividends, helping him finish points quicker.

Bergs, meanwhile, displayed glimpses of brilliance in his last match. He was particularly good on serve and took the attack to his opponent whenever given the chance.

While we can expect an interesting encounter between the two, it should be another routine victory for Dimitrov, who will be hard to stop, given the rich vein of form he is in currently. Bergs will have to serve incredibly well once again and make early inroads while returning if he is to have a chance of troubling Dimitrov.

Pick: Dimitrov in straight sets.
