THE PREDICTION

The disrupted 2020 season finally throws up this very intriguing match between world number 8 Andrey Rublev and the new kid on the block Jannik Sinner, whose trajectory is not dissimilar to the Russian. The outcome of this match looks exceedingly difficult to call between two players of similar build, age and playstyle and it promises to be an electrifying spectacle between two future top 5 players. We will know plenty more about Jannik Sinner after this match and the young Italian has every chance of taking a set here, if not claiming the upset but Rublev’s record this season is nothing short of exemplary. The 23-year-old is joint-top with Novak Djokovic on titles won, with four each, and he is chasing ATP Finals points here too. The winner of this match should be Andrey Rublev, probably via a decider, but tennis fans everywhere should watch this with keen interest as the first of many battles between these two.
