Felix Auger Aliassime

The Croatian has been more consistent in the grand slams lately and therefore his big match temperament may come into play. But considering the ranking and growing stature of Felix as a player, he is most likely to win the encounter against the veteran based on his immense hitting abilities.

Prediction: Aliassime to win in 5 sets.
