Carlos Alcaraz vs Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina – Match Predictions

2-0 to Carlos Alcaraz

It is difficult to root against Alcaraz, the 2022 Barcelona Open champion. The prodigious talent has had a solid start to the tournament and will be looking to maintain his unbeaten run. Meanwhile, Davidovich-Fokina has struggled to progress beyond this stage in the previous four attempts in 2023. Alcaraz has not dropped a set in his last 12 wins and should add to his tally in this meeting with his compatriot.

Over 18.5 Games

Despite his age, Robert Bautista-Agut gave Alcaraz a tough time on the court. The Spaniard will not expect anything less from his other compatriot whom he faces in the quarterfinals. With both players in good form and highly motivated to progress further in the tournament, they will stretch each other to their limit. Both Spanish stars have pedigree on the clay court and it is likely that this match will see over 18.5 games in total, if not more.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.

Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz defeated Roberto Bautista Agut in a tough match at the Barcelona Open. Despite facing early challenges, Alcaraz managed to win in straight sets and maintain his unbeaten record in the tournament. Alcaraz’s only losses this year were due to fitness issues and this can play a part in his next outing.

He had taken a break from competition after feeling some discomfort during the Miami Masters but continues his impressive run in 2023, reaching at least the semifinal stage in all four tournaments he has played. Although he struggled in his title-winning campaign in Barcelona last year, he has won his last 12 matches against Spanish opponents not named Rafael Nadal.

Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina

It has been a campaign of ups and downs for Alejandro Davidovich-Fokina. He has showcased his pedigree, reaching his fifth quarterfinal in 2023 the same amount he managed through the entirety of the 2022 campaign. He impressed fans and neutrals with his performances against Tomas Martin Etcheverry and Emil Ruusuvuori in the Barcelona Open this week.

The 23-year-old will have to play out of his skin to get a result against Alcaraz. It is a tall order given the fact that he has not progressed beyond the quarterfinal stage in his previous four attempts this year. His vanquishers are an esteemed club; Roberto Bautista Agut in Adelaide, Felix Auger Aliassime in Doha, Daniil Medvedev in Indian Wells, and Marco Cecchinato in Estoril.
