Our favourite Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Carlos Alcaraz – match predictions

Auger-Aliassime got the better of Constant Lestienne in the second round, earning a straight-set victory. On the other hand, Alcaraz had to dig deep and get a result in a three-set battle with Matteo Arnaldi.

2-1 to Carlos Alcaraz @ 5/2 (3.50)

Three of Auger-Aliassime’s last four defeats came in three sets against Andrey Rublev, Alexander Bublik and Flavio Cobolli. While he has had positive results against Alcaraz, his indifferent form does not let us believe it will be the case this time around. Alcaraz comes into this match with two 2-1 results in his favour and we believe he should get the better of Auger-Aliassime in a similar manner.

Over 20.5 Games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Against Lestienne, Auger-Aliassime was in sublime form to finish the match in 17 games. He saved six of the 10 breakpoints he accrued and will be looking to give a similar account of his abilities against Alcaraz. Arnaldi saved 7 of the 13 breakpoints he allowed the Spaniard in the three-set affair. We believe the match will go to a deciding set with over 20.5 games being played.

Felix Auger-Aliassime preview

Felix Auger-Aliassime has been navigating through a challenging phase of his career marked by injury issues and a decline in confidence levels. Despite these setbacks, he managed to secure a solid victory in the opening round at Indian Wells, showcasing glimpses of his potential. He will be backing himself to get a result against Alcaraz given his rival’s poor conditioning and his own indifferent form. Constant Lestienne learnt this the hard way and he will surely want to put up a clinic against the second seed.

Carlos Alcaraz preview

Carlos Alcaraz’s recent form has been marred by wastefulness and inefficiency, leading to frustration and disappointment on the court. He was ousted with ease by Alexander Zverev at the Australian Open quarter-finals and then found himself looking at the exit door in Buenos Aires thanks to Nicolas Jarry. His fitness struggles crept up in Rio de Janeiro where he had to retire after just two games. Although he managed to secure victory in the second round at Indian Wells, the closely contested match against Matteo Arnaldi did not inspire much confidence.
