Prior to the Miami Masters, Hubert Hurkacz flew under the radar despite a couple of good results. He led Poland to the ATP Cup semifinals at the start of the year, but was knocked out in the second round of the Australian Open and the Rotterdam Open. Hurkacz then reached the semifinals of the Dubai Tennis Championships and the fourth round of the Indian Wells Masters, losing to Andrey Rublev on both occasions. Hurkacz squared off against top seed Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinals and won 7-6(7), 6-3.

Carlos Alcaraz, meanwhile, has continued his rapid rise to the top of the men’s game. He started the year by losing a tough five-set contest against Matteo Berrettini in the third round of the Australian Open. The teenager then won the biggest title of his career at the Rio Open, an ATP 500 tournament. Alcaraz reached his first semifinal at the Masters 1000 level at Indian Wells. He went down to Rafael Nadal in three closely fought sets. Alcaraz took on Miomir Kecmanovic in the quarterfinals and emerged victorious after a hard-fought three-set tussle to reach the semifinals, thus becoming the youngest player to reach the last four in both Indian Wells and Miami.

Both players have played at a high level throughout the tournament but Alcaraz has had a much better year overall, losing just two matches. Both of his losses this season have come against players ranked inside the top six — Rafael Nadal and Matteo Berrettini. The teenager will certainly have the edge heading into the encounter.

Match Prediction- Alcaraz to win in straight sets.
