Carlos Alcaraz and Hubert Hurkacz will face again, this time in the Cincinnati Open 2023 semi-finals. This has been one of the most challenging tournaments for the Spanish player, who has been eliminated in every round.

Our favourite Carlos Alcaraz vs Hubert Hurkacz predictions

Hubert Hurkacz is currently ranked 20th in the ATP rankings, which are headed by Carlos Alcaraz. Let’s take a look at today’s tennis prediction and analysis of the Cincinnati Open semi-final.

Over 21.5 total games @ 4/7 (1.57)

The previous time the two players faced off, the match went to three sets and 35 games. Even though they only had two sets, their first h2h ended with a total of 26 games.

The Spanish player generally wins in straight sets, but he lost a set in each round of this tournament. So it wouldn’t be surprising to see more than 22 games, if not more.

First set after 4 games: 2-2 @ 8/13 (1.61)

Carlos Alcaraz has conditioned us to a fairly offensive style of play over the last year. Converting break points is one of his strengths, but it has been one of his struggles this season.

In the previous three rounds, neither Alcaraz nor his opponents converted breakpoints in the opening four serves. Hubert Hurkacz has previously complicated his opponents, and I believe he will do so again this time.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.

Will Alcaraz and Hurkacz have another three-set struggle?

Having looked at the Cincinnati Open odds, let’s take a look at the performance of each competitor. What are the chances of Carlos Alcaraz or Hubert Hurkacz winning.

Carlos Alcaraz 

After reaching the Cincinnati Open semi-finals, the Spanish tennis player is guaranteed to remain at the top of the ATP rankings at least until the next US Open. Novak Djokovic is closing the points difference. With Alcaraz’s impressive 52-win record, the race to be the greatest in the world will be intense in the following months.

Hubert Hurkacz

The Polish tennis player has done exceptionally well thus far, and his reward is to be one of the four remaining players in the Cincinnati Open in 2023. His chances of becoming champion are diminished by the fact that he has never beaten Alcaraz.

Alcaraz vs Hurkacz Head to Head

The two players have only met a number of times thus far. The Spanish player won each of the duels, despite the fact that four of the five sets they played finished in tiebreaks.

10/08/23 Alcaraz beat Hurkacz 3-6 7-6 7-6 (Toronto, hardcourt)

01/04/22 Alcaraz beat Hurkacz 7-6 7-6 (Miami, hardcourt)
