Jannik Sinner vs Grigor Dimitrov – Match Predictions

As we anticipate Jannik Sinner vs Grigor Dimitrov, these are our predictions and tips for this match

Grigor Dimitrov to Not Go Down in Straight Sets

Granted, Jannik Sinner has been on an impressive run since the start of last month. He reached back-to-back finals at Montpellier and Rotterdam, winning one title. However, Grigor Dimitrov has held his own against almost every opponent he has faced this year. It’s important to point out that the Bulgarian player won at least one set in 11 of the 13 singles matches he has played this season; only Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev defeated him in straight sets. Furthermore, the only other time these players met, Dimitrov won in three sets. On that note, we believe the Bulgarian will take at least one set from this match.

Over 21.5 Total Games

We’ve established that these players played out a three-setter the only other time they met. Interestingly, that match featured up to 30 games. It’s important to note that Grigor Dimitrov’s last three matches ended in maximum sets, and five of his last seven singles matches featured more than 21 games. Keeping in mind that six of Jannik Sinner’s last eight matches went over 21.5, we should expect this match to go above this line.

Jannik Sinner vs Grigor Dimitrov Preview

Our predictions for this match have been sorted out. Now it’s time to take a look at both players’ recent performances.

Jannik Sinner

After an impressive performance at the Indian Wells Open, where he reached the semi-final, Jannik Sinner kick-started his Miami Open campaign against Laslo Djere. This was not a very difficult test for the Italian, as he converted five of 10 break points en route to a straight sets victory. Sinner will have to get past Grigor Dimitrov if he intends to reach the next round. It’ll be interesting to see how he matches up against the Bulgarian player.

Grigor Dimitrov

On the other hand, Grigor Dimitrov had to come from behind to defeat Jan-Lennard Struff in three sets a couple of days ago. The former World number 3 has had his fair share of struggles lately, as he lost three of his last five singles matches. He’ll look to improve his poor form by beating Jannik Sinner today.
