Mackenzie McDonald vs Aslan Karatsev – Match Predictions
Mackenzie McDonald to Win
It is difficult to separate Karatsev and McDonald given their respective results in Washington. It is the American who earned bragging rights in their last meeting and has been more active since his Wimbledon ousting at the hands of Aleksander Bublik. He had earlier made an impressive run in Eastbourne International. Given his better prior form, we are backing McDonald to triumph in this meeting.
Over 22.5 Games
As the focus returns to the North American hard court swing, both McDonald and Karatsev participated in Washington. The earned one win apiece but that was the end of their run. The duo have made mistakes and failed to profit from whatever opportunities they caused on the other side of the net. Their last duel saw 21 games to find a victor, the same as McDonald’s last match and three fewer than Karatsev’s 2-0 defeat to Frances Tiafoe in Washington. As they meet in the first round of the National Bank Open, we expect to see another long duel with at least 22.5 games played.
