Carlos Alcaraz vs Taylor Fritz
The Miami Open 2023 has been a tournament full of surprises, with the next generation of tennis stars showing off their tennis talents. One of these players is Carlos Alcaraz, who has made it to the quarter-finals of the tournament. Let’s take a closer look at Alcaraz’s chances when he faces Taylor Fritz in today’s quarter-finals.
Carlos Alcaraz, has been making headlines since his debut in the ATP Tour in 2020. He is currently the ATP #1 ranked player. The 19-year-old Spaniard has been compared to his compatriot Rafael Nadal due to his similar style of play and work ethic.
In the Miami Open 2023, Alcaraz has been in excellent form, winning all his matches convincingly. In the third round, he defeated the experienced Italian player, Fabio Fognini, in straight sets, demonstrating his ability to play against top players. Alcaraz has also shown great resilience on the court, as he came back from a set down in his second-round match against Cameron Norrie.
In the quarter-finals, Alcaraz will face 10th ranked American Taylor Fritz who himself has been in solid form, winning all his Miami Open matches in straight sets. The American’s serve and forehand have been firing and his opponents have been struggling to get into any rhythm against him.
Alcaraz and Fritz have never played against each other before. However, Alcaraz’s aggressive style of play could pose a challenge for Fritz, who may struggle to defend against Alcaraz’s powerful forehand. On the other hand, Fritz’s big serve could be an advantage, especially on the hard courts in Miami.
To have any chance against the phenomenal return game of Alcaraz, Fritz will have to make sure he serves at his highest level and keeps his forehand return percentages high. Additionally, key points may have to go his way for the American to have any chance against the high-flying Spanish youngster.
We think Alcaraz will be too strong for Fritz and take it in two sets.
Back Alcaraz to win 2-0
