De Minaur’s Road to the Finals

Alex De Minaur booked his second consecutive trip to the tournament’s finals after beating American Frances Tiafoe 4-2, 4-1, 0-4, 4-2, increasing his record to 8-1 at the tournament.  The unique format shows that each set is the first to four games. De Minaur dominated the entire match, but after losing the third set, he had to find a way to recover. He did find a way to convert all four of his breakpoints, and call it a match in just 73 minutes.

The Australian had to put friendship aside for this semifinal, since Frances Tiafoe has actually become one of his good friends over the past few years. After losing the 2018 final to current World No. 6, Stefanos Tsitsipas, De Minaur goes into this final the clear favorite. If he wins this tournament, he will have won his fourth ATP Tour title, and has the opportunity to collect his biggest career pay cheque to date.

Sinner’s Road to the Finals

The 18-year old Italian, Jannik Sinner beat Serbian Miomir Kecmanovic 2-4, 4-1, 4-2, 4-2 in front of his home crowd to head to the final. During his semifinal match, Sinner managed to win 71% of his service points with 24 winners, all just in 75 minutes.

Sinner didn’t start as strong as he had hoped, going down in the opening set. His opponent Kecmanovic was controlling the entire match as Sinner was struggling to find his serve. Sinner was able to adjust and came out in the second set strong. This is when the home crowd was able to get into the match, and they didn’t let up for the rest of match. Sinner gained control over the match, and eventually booked his ticket to the final.

Head-to-Head

These two players are so young and are the first time playing each other. Many are excited that this tournament builds long lasting rivalries as their careers grow. Both Alex De Minaur and Jannick Sinner

Both players have the ability to win this match. It’s won’t be a surprise if De Minaur holds the trophy at the end, as all things point to him. He has a couple years on Sinner, which translates into experience. The amount of matches each has played in 2019 speaks for itself. De Minaur has worked his way up into the Top 20, and Sinner is working his way up in the ranks, having moved up over 100 spots this year alone.

De Minaur was in this spot last year, he knows what it takes to win, and he’s grown since the final last year. It’s simply just his time. Sinner is so young and fresh to the Tour, he might be in this position again next year, and it might be his time then. But to do so young and still have +200 odds to De Minaur’s -250 means it won’t be an easy match for the Australian.

Best Bet: Alex De Minaur (-250)
