The ever-explosive Benoit Paire taking on home favorite Frances Tiafoe may well be the match and star of the night session on Stadium 1.
It will also be intriguing to see how Kim Clijsters fares as she takes on Katerina Siniakova on her final comeback. The 38-year-old has four Grand Slam singles titles under her belt and the fans will be right behind her.
