French Open 2020 : Khachanov ready for Garin test
Garin burst onto the scene last spring when he won the titles on green clay in Houston and on the red stuff in Munich and arrived at Roland-Garros with many tipping him as a dangerous floater. A beating from Stan Wawrinka stopped him in his tracks but the young Chilean is seeded 20th and Karen Khachanov knows he’ll need to be at his very best if he’s to reach the fourth round for the fourth year in a row.
A quarter-finalist in Paris last year, the Russian said he would be ready for whatever Garin threw at him.
“Honestly, we never played against each other, but we know each other from juniors, from a young age but never met before,” he said. “For me it would be a really interesting match. Excited about it. Third round, playing against a good player, same age. So, (I’m) looking forward to it.”
