Jannik Sinner vs Andrey Rublev – Match Predictions
Andrey Rublev To Win
Cameron Norrie ended Rubelev’s Indian Wells adventures while it was Carlos Alcaraz who sent Sinner back to the drawing board. The Russian failed to save any of the breakpoints in that game and only converted two of his own. Alcaraz did not give Sinner a lot of chances but he did convert one of the two breakpoints while saving four of the six he gave himself. It has been Rubelev who has made the more improvements and did not even once was threatened by Miomir Kecmanovic but did break his rival four times. On the other hand, a limping Grigor Dimitrov broke Sinner twice in the last round. Based on this, we are backing Rublev to get over the line at Sinner’s expense.

Jannik Sinner vs Andrey Rublev Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in this tournament.
The 21-year-old Italian made little work of Grigor Dimitrov and Laslo Djere. He earned passage to the next round with straight sets victories. While none of these sets required a tiebreaker to decide the winner, it has not been as smooth sailing as Sinner would have wanted. He has seen his service broken twice by both Dimitrov and Djere. Sinner will have to be at his best to give a better account of his abilities and match his Indian Wells heroics in Miami.
Rublev will be hard on himself after coming up short against silverware winners in their journey. He lost out to Novak Djokovic in Australian Open. Daniil Medvedev made little work of him in Dubai. Apart from competition winners, he has faced resilience from young guns, Jiri Lehecka in Doha and Cameron Norrie in Indian Wells. Not to make it three times, Rublev dispatched Kecmanovic in straight sets, never coming in danger of dropping a game.
