The second round clash between the two players is expected to be a close encounter and can go either way. Sinner has an aggressive style of play and can outplay his opponent on a given day.

However, Sinner is expected to emerge victorious on Tuesday as the Italian has played consistent tennis over the past few months and more often than not, is capable of producing his best tennis.
