Jannik Sinner vs Diego Schwartzman: Prediction
Diego will come into the clash with a career indoor-hardcourt surface record of 27-23 and is 3-1 on the surface this season while having a season record of 35-20 across all surfaces. Sinner will take the court with a career indoor-hardcourt record of 52-15 and is 9-2 on the surface this season having a 41-18 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers, their recent form and past few performances, it is difficult to predict an outright winner as Diego has better experience but Sinner has a better record on indoor hardcourts. Nevertheless, Sinner would still remain the favourite for his better recent form and consistency having won 2 titles since the hardcourt season resumed again.
Prediction: Jannik Sinner to win in 3-sets.
