Sinner has broken into the top-20 this year, a remarkable feat considering he is still just nineteen years old. Sinner ended the hard court swing with aplomb as he reached the Finals of the ATP 1000 Miami Open. On the clay courts so far, Sinner was ousted in the round of thirty-two in the Monte Carlo Open, losing to Novak Djokovic in straight sets. But, he came back swiftly in the Barcelona Open where he reached the Semi-finals of the event.

In the first round of the event his opponent is Guido Pella. Since competing in the Australian Open, where he lost in the first round, Pella has played only on the clay court. His last tournament was the Munich Open where he made it to the second round.

Sinner has the form and the power to dominate Pella. Pella who is most comfortable in doubles, relies on long rallies to break his opponents down. This encounter will be a one sided affair and Sinner should win easily. 

Match Prediction: Jannik Sinner will beat Guido Pella in straight sets.
