Murray will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 152-44 and is 10-6 on the surface this season while being 18-13 across all surfaces this season. Alcaraz will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 1-1 and has a 1-1 surface season record. He is 39-17 for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their past performances and recent form coming into the match, it is difficult to predict an outright winner since Murray will come in with better experience but will be tired after a long match whereas an inexperienced Carlos will be looking to avenge his Indian Wells defeat and level the head to head. Alcaraz’s better fitness might just help him win the tie.

Prediction: Carlos Alcaraz to win in 3-sets.
