Carlos Alcaraz vs Jannik Sinner : Preview
On Saturday (March 31st), the number one seed Carlos Alcaraz will face off against the tenth seed Jannik Sinner in a bid to secure a place in the Miami Open final. Alcaraz exhibited an outstanding performance against Taylor Fritz, the hometown favorite, in the quarterfinals on Thursday night. He lost just six games, bringing him closer to achieving a Sunshine Double, and boosting his season record to 18-1.
Additionally, Alcaraz now boasts an impressive 10-1 record in Miami, where he secured his first-ever Masters 1000 title a year ago. After winning the Argentina Open, the young Spanish player’s impressive start to the season was halted by Cameron Norrie in the Rio de Janeiro final. However, he bounced back at Indian Wells, where he put an end to Daniil Medvedev’s 19-match winning streak, and overtook Novak Djokovic as the new World No. 1.
Alcaraz has continued his winning streak, securing four victories in Miami, and extending his unbeaten run to ten matches. He now needs to win two more matches to maintain his World No.1 ranking. On the other hand, the eleventh-seeded Sinner is enjoying another remarkable season, having achieved a 20-4 record in 2023 with a victory over Emil Ruusuvuori.
The Italian player, who recently made it to the semifinals at Indian Wells, now boasts a 12-2 record in Miami. Prior to this, Sinner clinched his first title of 2023 in Montpellier, but fell short to Medvedev in the Rotterdam final. Additionally, he made it to the second week of the Australian Open earlier this year.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Jannik Sinner: Prediction
In their head-to-head matchups, Alcaraz has a slight advantage over Sinner, leading 3-2. Notably, Alcaraz has emerged victorious in their last two encounters, including the 2022 US Open semifinals, which lasted five sets, and the recent Indian Wells semifinals, which he won in straight sets en route to the title. Alcaraz and Sinner are widely considered two of the most promising young players in the game.
Their baseline play and hardcourt skills being particularly impressive – boasting powerful groundstrokes, big serves, elite athleticism, and a strong mentality. However, Alcaraz stands out with his ability to hit winners from seemingly impossible angles. This upcoming match between the two players is expected to be a closely contested one as they match up well against each other.
Alcaraz was able to secure a straight-set victory over Sinner in their most recent meeting at Indian Wells, but they played an intense five-set match during the quarterfinals of the US Open last year. Nevertheless, given the exceptional form that the Spanish player is currently in, it is difficult to see anyone but Alcaraz coming out on top in this matchup.
Prediction: Carlos Alcaraz wins in three sets.
