Francisco Cerundolo vs Lorenzo Sonego – Match Predictions

As these players set their sights on a place in the Miami Open quarterfinals, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Lorenzo Sonego to Emerge Victorious

To be fair, Francisco Cerundolo is coming off one of the biggest wins in his career, as he knocked out Felix Auger-Aliassime in the previous round. The Argentine player won two of two matches in this tournament in straight sets. However, we would like to point out that Cerundolo hasn’t been able to string up three consecutive wins this season. As a matter of fact, the last time he won three singles matches in a row was in July last year, at the Hamburg Open. Furthermore, Francisco Cerundolo suffered 20 losses in 32 singles matches since that three-match win streak.

By comparison, Lorenzo Sonego has fared relatively better than his Argentine opponent in recent months. He’s coming off three consecutive wins, and has five wins in his last seven singles matches. Keeping that in mind, we believe that the Italian player will advance to the next round at the expense of Francisco Cerundolo.

Three Total Sets

Neither of these players has particularly stood out in recent months, as both players have been inconsistent. On that note, we don’t think this will be a one-sided contest. It’s also important to point out that Francisco Cerundolo has been involved in a lot of three-setters, as eight of his last 12 singles matches ended in maximum sets. That said, we expect this match to go all the way to three sets.

How have these players fared in this competition? Let’s take a look.

Francisco Cerundolo

Francisco Cerundolo took on Felix Auger-Aliassime and Aleksandar Kovacevic in the previous two rounds. He held his own against both opponents, defeating them in straight sets. The Argentine player will set his sights on a quarterfinal spot, and he’ll fancy his chances against Lorenzo Sonego.

Lorenzo Sonego

Unlike today’s opponent, Lorenzo Sonego wasn’t seeded ahead of this competition, so he featured in the first round. The Italian player has beaten Dominic Thiem, Daniel Evans and Frances Tiafoe in this tournament, whilst surrendering one set. Sonego will be eyeing his fourth consecutive win, it’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against Cerundolo.
