Khachanov vs Alcaraz Garfia: prediction for the Roland Garros match
Karen Khachanov started his French Open campaign with a hard-earned victory over Nuno Borges (6-3, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4). After that, he prevailed over Hugo Dellien (4-6, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3). In the previous match, the Russian managed to pass Cameron Norrie (6-2, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4). Khachanov will hope to repeat the achievement of 2019, when he reached the quarterfinals of the French Open.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia is having a great year. The Spanish athlete started his French Open campaign with a straight-set victory over Juan Ignacio Londero (6-4, 6-2, 6-0). In the second match, however, he almost lost to his more experienced compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas (6-1, 6-7, 5-7, 7-6, 6-4). In the third round, Alcaraz Garfia ousted Sebastian Korda (6-4, 6-4, 6-2).
Alcaraz Garfia has played 4 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In 4 of Khachanov's last 5 matches, no more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Alcaraz Garfia started a bit nervously at the current tournament, but he has gained momentum and looked brilliant against Sebastian Korda. We expect the Spaniard to win today and progress to the quarterfinals.
Our prediction - handicap (-7) to Alcaraz Garfia
Alcaraz Garfia isn't showing his best tennis, so we think Khachanov has a chance; the Russian is on top form and should put up a fight. We suggest taking the over.
Second bet - total over 32 games
