With one title and one final, Karatsev has accomplished a lot this year. His ability to hit those game-changing forehands has been really beneficial. Cilic’s huge serve, on the other hand, has proven a problem for a number of opponents. We expect a thrilling encounter, but given Karatsev’s current form, he may defeat Cilic.

Our predictions: Karatsev to win in three sets.
