It’s fair to say that the business end of the 2024 Madrid Open has arrived. This means more tennis predictions today have been lined up, and I believe I’ve found two great markets for Auger-Aliassime vs Lehecka. Read on for the full breakdown. 

Our favourite Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Jiri Lehecka predictions

Felix Auger-Aliassime has been a little fortunate concerning withdrawals and retirements in Madrid this year. Mensik retired mid-match against the Canadian in round three, and Sinner gave him a walkover into the semis. Therefore, I’m sure he will be fresher than Lehecka coming into this match.

That said, Lehecka is a true battler, and he did take out the King of Clay in the round of 16. With that in mind, with the way things are shaping up, the following two markets stand out for me:

Lehecka to win @ 3/4 (1.75)

Realistically, both of these guys have a chance of reaching the final. They’ve both played solid tennis all week long, but for me, I have to give the edge to Jiri Lehecka. He has been hitting the ball amazingly from the back of the court, and his serving has been sensational. Additionally, he has beaten the Canadian before.

Three total sets @ 5/4 (2.25)

The odds for Lehecka are pretty appealing, as evidenced above. However, I can’t see Auger-Aliassime rolling over without a fight. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if he snatched a set from the young Czech, especially since Lehecka is not super experienced in the latter stages of such events. 

Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Jiri Lehecka odds

Looking at the latest odds for this match, Auger-Aliassime has an implied chance of 50% to win here, while the implied probability for Lehecka is 57.10%

Auger-Aliassime or Lehecka to grind their way into the Madrid Open 2024 final?

You’ve got my predictions digested at this point. So now, let me switch the attention to each individual in terms of their form and chances in this game.

Felix Auger-Aliassime preview

To be perfectly honest, Auger-Aliassime’s run to the semis of the Madrid Open has come out of nowhere. He’s had a mediocre season to date, and while, yes, he’s had great results on clay in the past, he didn’t come in as an in-form player. Nevertheless, with wins over Nishioka, Mannarino, and, most notably, Ruud, he’s got to fancy his chances in this one.

Jiri Lehecka preview

Given that Lehecka has now reached the semi-finals, it’s all to play for. The guy must be feeling seriously confident, too, having beaten Nadal, followed by Medvedev – even if the latter came via a retirement after the first set. And with the way he’s striking the ball, it looks very promising for the young man.

Auger-Aliassime vs Lehecka head to head

These two have played just once in the past, and this encounter came in the 2023 Australian Open. In that match, Lehecka got the win in four sets, meaning he holds a 1-0 head to head record against Auger-Aliassime.
