The 2022 Cincinnati Open winner Borna Coric will battle it out against qualifier Enzo Couacaud in the first round of the US Open on Monday.

The Croat has a 17-12 win-loss record this season. Besides his Cincinnati title, his he won one Challenger-level trophy (Emilia-Romagna Tennis Cup) besides reaching the quarterfinals in Hamburg.

Couacaud, a qualifier, has competed in numerous ATP Challenger tournaments this year. After not getting past the qualifying rounds at the Australian Open and French Open, he made it to the main draw at Wimbledon, where he fell to John Isner in the opening round after a nail-biting five-setter.

This will be the World No. 194's first US Open main draw appearance. The Frenchman came through the qualifying rounds, beating Geoffrey Blancaneaux in straight sets in his last match to book his spot in the main draw.

Borna Coric vs Enzo Couacaud predictions

Western & Southern Open - Day 9
Western & Southern Open - Day 9

Coric has earned widespread praise for his consistency and solid groundstrokes and remains the clear favorite to win this match.

The Croat burst onto the scene along with other talented youngsters like Alexander Zverev, Nick Kyrgios and Denis Shapovalov. He has made a mark with his impressive work ethic and attitude. Despite his injury woes recently, he bounced back to win a Masters 1000 title and should be in good form to give his best at the US Open.

Couacaud, on the other hand, has had a good season in the Challenger level. He is known for his decent serve and defensive gameplay. He likes to tire his opponents by engaging them in long rallies and switching the gameplay from defense to offense.

However, Coric's form and tour-level experience should see him come through this contest without too much trouble.

Pick: Coric to win in four sets.
