Sinner comes into this semifinal clash after beating Casper Ruud in straight sets. In fact, the Italian is yet to drop a set this week in Vienna, after three matches. It has been a dream year for the 20-year-old, especially on the hard courts. Interestingly, Sinner won titles in Sofia and Antwerp without dropping a set.

Going by his recent form and confidence, he will be aiming for another Grand finish in the Austrian capital. In the last 14 matches on hard courts, the young Italian has lost only once in 15 outings. Furthermore, Sinner is also inching closer towards qualifying for the World Tour Finals in Turin, next month.

On the other hand, Tiafoe has been a surprise package in Vienna. Despite coming through the qualifiers, the American stunned World No.3 Stefanos Tsitsipas in the second round, before beating the Argentine superstar, Diego Schwartzman in the quarterfinals.

As compared to his higher-ranked opponent, the 23-year-old hasn’t experienced a productive time on the hard courts lately, but that is unlikely to stop Tiafoe from giving the No.7 seed a run for his money in the semis.

Both players have been playing inspired tennis. While Tiafoe will be confident of coming up with another attacking brand of tennis, Sinner will be keen on staying strong with his basics. Although the American has the quality and confidence to push the match deep, the Italian’s juggernaut will eventually see him through in yet another final.

Match Prediction: Jannik Sinner to win in straight sets.
