Lorenzo Sonego vs Jannik Sinner – Match Predictions
Sinner has taken over the crown as the best Italian tennis player today but Sonego will not give up just like that.
Lorenzo Sonego +3.5
Sinner had no problems defeating Sonego in their first match this year but things will not go that smoothly on grass in Halle. Sonego has a solid serve, and prefers short points which suits perfectly on this surface. Sinner is still the better player and would probably move forward but Sonego has everything he needs to cover the +3.5 games spread.
First set over 10.5 games
Both players have very good service which is tough to return on this surface. They are both tall with confident forehand and move well both on the base line or when they need to run to the net. It will take a while before any of them breaks the opponent serve so the firsts et can be expected to go over 10.5 games.
