Tomas Martin Etcheverry vs Sebastian Baez – Match Predictions

Tomas Martin Etcheverry to Win

In what promises to be an enthralling encounter, there is little to separate the two Argentines but it is the top-seed Etcheverry who has our backing to emerge victorious. Etcheverry’s has been 24-13 on clay in 2023, reaching the championship match in Santiago, Houston and Bordeaux  Challenger. On the other hand, Baez falls slightly behind in comparison with his 19-13 win-loss record on clay. And while Etcheverry has majorly focused on the red surface, Baez has tried his luck elsewhere without much to show for it. They met earlier in Santiago at the same stage and it was Etcheverry who triumphed and we believe he has the momentum to get another result against his countryman.

Over 22.5 Games

Baez has not allowed his rivals to secure more than four games in any set at the Austrian Open. Etcheverry is a different beast and will not be outsmarted similarly. Against Galan, he showcased the resilient side of his game that has seen him impress on the red surface and reach the French Open quarter-finals. The last time they met, Baez was not at his best and the match had 21 games. This time around, the duo are in red-hot form and their duel will not see an early finish. Based on this, we are expecting Over 22.5 Games in their semi-final encounter.

Tomas Martin Etcheverry

Etcheverry’s recent run at the top level of the main tour has been nothing short of spectacular. With a commendable display of consistency and skill, especially on clay courts, his race to the top 50 is merited. In Austria, the top seed registered victories over fellow South American players, Guido Andreozzi and Daniel Elahi Galan, to reach the semifinals at the Austrian Open. The latter duel was a tiring three-set affair that showcased he can dig deep to carve out results. Move to the finals in Austria will surely complement his quarterfinal run at the French Open in June as he will aim to carry his momentum forward.

Sebastian Baez

Despite encountering initial challenges with confidence and fitness, Baez’s determination and skill shone through on his preferred surface. He secured an ATP title in Cordoba earlier this year, marking a significant achievement in his career. Additionally, he made impressive appearances in Santiago and Kitzbuhel, reaching the semifinals in both tournaments. Notably, in Kitzbuhel, he displayed exceptional dominance, not allowing opponents to win more than four games in a set. Baez’s strong form on clay presents a promising opportunity for him to reclaim higher positions in the ATP rankings in the second half of the season.
