THE PREDICTION

World number nine Felix Auger-Aliassime will have to pick himself up and dust himself down after a brutal exit to Casper Ruud at the Canada Masters last week came so soon after a complete performance against Cam Norrie in the round of 16. The 22-year-old still needs to find some consistency to match his clear potential but he is set to fall away in the ATP world rankings if he does not produce a deep run here in Cincinnati as his points from a career-best run to the semi-finals of the US Open last year will dissipate soon. World number 20 Alex de Minaur put in an assured performance to beat lucky loser Henri Laaksonen on Tuesday and the 23-year-old has been in excellent form over the last few months. The Aussie will be up for the challenge in this first meeting with Auger-Aliassime as an effective underdog, with wins over Denis Shapovalov and Grigor Dimitrov last week suggest he fares a solid chance. Auger-Aliassime should be coming through this test but backing the Canadian to win at least a set looks the suitably cautious move in leaving the winner up to chance.
