Daniel Altmaier vs Borna Coric – Match Predictions
Daniel Altmaier to Win
Borna Coric ended his poor run of form in the Madrid Open, registering his first win after five matches. He has not looked back and has cruised past his rivals to book this quarter-final meeting with Daniel Altmaier. While it is difficult to discount the Croatian ace against a 92-ranked rival, it is the more rational choice given the German’s form. Altmaier was crowned Sarasota champion in the middle of April and is the form player out of the two. Given Coric’s continued struggles in 2023 and Altmaier’s brilliance in recent months, we are backing the German to claim passage to the semi-finals.
2-0 to Daniel Altmaier
This is the first time Coric and Altmaier will grace the pitch together. The Croatian is vying to impress after his struggles in Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo and Banja Luka. On the other another hand, Almaier has made the most of April and added a challenger title against his name. The German has accumulated nine wins in April and only one came in three sets. If he has to get one over Coric, a straight sets victory is the most likely option.
