Jannik Sinner v Guido Pella Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between Sinner and Pella before this.
Sinner Coming off Barcelona Semifinal
An ATP Next-Gen title followed by back to back ATP tournament victories including one this year, Sinner has slowly grown as a player at the senior circuit. He has already been tipped to be the next big thing to watch out for and given his rise and progress to the world’s 18th-ranked player, it seems highly likely.
Clay isn’t one of his most favourite surfaces but that’s what good players – they adapt even when they don’t enjoy playing on surfaces they don’t enjoy too much. And that seemed to be on display in Barcelona last week.
Sinner first carved out an easy win over Egor Gerasimov but the following victories, over Roberto Bautista-Agut and Andrey Rublev would have given him the most confidence. Both were straight-set efforts, and both indicators of what could follow with a little more experience.
The Italian fell to Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Barcelona semifinal but he now has a chance to make a mark on a clay-court ATP 1000 event like he did earlier in Miami this season where he reached the final.
Pella in Clay Court Slump
His best results have come on clay, with his only ATP title at the 2019 Sao Paulo Open, but Pella’s struggles this season have seen him fall on red dirt as badly as he has on other surfaces.
Of the four tournaments he has played on clay, Pella has won just one match – it came in Munich where Egor Gerasimov retired from an injury – and lost four others.
What makes his results tougher to take is the fact those defeats haven’t come to some of the top players around. Gerasimov, Lucas Pouille, Kei Nishikori and John Millman have all had the better of Pella and that would be putting some serious question-marks on the Argentine’s form.
And now facing a player who has been compared with Novak Djokovic, it seems highly likely, an easy fifth defeat on clay this season could be in the offing.
Sinner v Pella Prediction and Tip
Sinner is 2/5 to win this in straight sets, which is a risk-free bet we believe given what has transpired so far in recent times.
