The 27-year-old German, ranked a lowly 184 in the world, has come through three tough rounds of qualifying to make the main draw in Paris for the first time.
There’s no match history between these two players.
Despite being 27 years old, this is only the second time Hanfmann has participated in a grand slam, as he was in the 2018 US Open where he lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber in four sets.
Rafa is 14-3 on the spring European clay-court swing, lifting his first ATP Tour title of 2019 in Rome with victory over World No. 1 Novak Djokovic on 19 May.
Our champ has an incredible 86-2 match record at the clay-court major.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
