THE PREDICTION

There is a lot on the line for 20-year-old Felix Auger-Aliassime here as he enters his eighth ATP final in search of a first title. The Canadian has not dropped a set all week long after overcoming Sam Querrey returning to form on Saturday but he faces his toughest opponent of the campaign in world number 47 Marin Cilic, who leads their head-to-head 2-0. 32-year-old Cilic has also not dropped a set through to the finals and the Croat’s last of 18 career ATP titles came on grass at Queens’ Club in 2018. Cilic is certainly the favourite here on experience and the fact that he has so far bested world number 21 Auger-Aliassime. The romantic option is to pick the youngster to finally win his firs title here but it is safer to opt for Auger-Aliassime to win at least a set in this one and leave a winner up to chance.
