Andrey Rublev vs Jannik Sinner – match predictions
Rublev and Sinner are about to enter a battle for the right to play in the final and these are our predictions and tips for this match
Jannik Sinner to win @ 1/2 (1.50)
Jannik Sinner won easily the only match vs Rublev he played this calendar year. Sinner has been on a winning spree this month and after lifting the prestigious title in Shanghai last week he reached the Vienna Open semis without dropping a set.
On the other hand, Rublev had to play two very tough matches already this week. The Russian used lots of physical and mental energy in his dramatic quarterfinal win and he is bound to feel the effects of all that now.
Two total sets @ 3/4 (1.75)
When the players met earlier this year, their only meeting so far in 2023, at the Miami Masters Sinner won easily 6-2, 6-4. Sinner has been in excellent form recently and he lifted the Shanghai title this month while beating Alcaraz and Medvedev on the way. He is yet to drop a set in his first three matches in Vienna either.
All that, plus the fact that Rublev has never beaten Sinner when the Italian has been full fit, makes us back a clean win.
