Lorenzo Sonego vs Carlos Alcaraz: Prediction and Betting Tips
Lorenzo Sonego needs some improvements in his game
Having been on the tour since 2013, Lorenzo Sonego is having the best year of his career. In fact, the Italian has won one of his two career titles this season in Cagliari. Also, he reached the final of Eastbourne on his favorite grass surface and the semi-finals of the Rome Masters.
However, in terms of win/loss record, Sonego’s best record of his career is on the grass. Concerning his form on the hard courts this season, it is well below par with a 7-9 record. In addition, the 26-year-old’s best result on this surface was reaching the quarter-finals in Montpellier. Sonego is a very good player that likes the fast courts. But he needs to be more composed during the matches, especially during the crucial points.
Sonego Key Stats
- Sonego has played on average 25 games per match on hard courts this season
- The Italian’s service percentage is 67.4%
- The world number 27 won 48.8% of the sets he played
Carlos Alcaraz progressing quickly on the tour
Like his opponent, Carlos Alcaraz’s best year so far in his young tennis career is 2021. Playing in his fourth year on tour, the Spaniard won his only title this year in Umag on clay. Evidently, Alcaraz’s favorite surface is clay where he has his best career record of 12-7. Also, he has a record of 3-3 in the round of 1/32 in which this match is being played.
Furthermore, Alcaraz already played two matches in Cincinnati in the qualification rounds. The Spaniard beat Monteiro and Ivashka in straight sets. Thus he will be more prepared to play against Sonego with a much better feel for the court and the atmosphere. To conclude, Alcaraz is rising quickly and he has the prospect of reaching high rankings in no time.
Alcaraz key stats
- Alcaraz has a 3-4 win/loss record on hard courts this season
- The Spaniard has played 22.3 games per match
- The world number 55 won 73.1% of his service games
Lorenzo Sonego vs Carlos Alcaraz Prediction
This will be the first-ever meeting between these two players. Notably, they have contrasting styles of play. While Sonego likes the fast surfaces of grass courts, Alcaraz prefers the slow clay courts.
Having said that, both players haven’t done well on hard courts this year. However, the bookies are favoring Alcaraz to win the match with odds of 1.67 at Vbet. While Sonego has odds of 2.30 for a win.
The reason for this may be that the Spaniard has won already two matches in Cincinnati as opposed to the Italian who lost his last two matches on hard courts.
In the end, we predict it will be a tight match with both players relying on their powerful groundstrokes. We think there is a big possibility that we will see a three-set match.
