Sinner vs Alcaraz: prediction for the Wimbledon match
Jannik Sinner is gaining momentum. In the opening match, he needed four sets and a tie-break to defeat Stan Wawrinka (7-5, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2). After that, he surrendered a set to Mikael Ymer (6-4, 3-6, 5-7, 6-2). In the third-round match, the Italian player overcame big server John Isner (6-4, 7-6, 6-3). This is Sinner's best result at Wimbledon - in previous years, he couldn't make it part the first round.
Alcaraz Garfia prefers clay courts, but he seems to have adjusted well to the grass courts of Wimbledon. In his opener, the young Spanish star prevailed over Jan-Lennard Struff in five sets (4-6, 7-5, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4). After that, he defeated Tallon Griekspoor in straight sets (6-4, 7-6, 6-3). To reach the last 16, Alcaraz beat Oscar Otte (6-3, 6-1, 6-2).
Sinner played 1 tie-break in his last 5 matches.
In 4 of Alcaraz's last 5 matches, more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Alcaraz Garfia has been delivering good results on grass courts this year. However, we can't say he demonstrates his best tennis on this surface. Sinner's style suits grass courts better, and we think he has the edge in the upcoming last-16 match.
Our prediction - Sinner to win
Sinner and Alcaraz are both in excellent form, and we don't think this will be a short battle. Their previous two meetings were tense and very close, and we expect something similar in the upcoming match. Take the over.
