Spanish Teenager Alcaraz Aiming for the Top

Alcaraz has been given a wildcard into the Madrid championship for the first time, and big things are expected of him after making a strong start to his professional career.

He made his senior ATP debut at the Rio Open last year, winning his opening match, and earlier this year, he became the youngest man to qualify for the 2021 Australian Open, winning on this Grand Slam debut.

Victories became a little harder to find after that, but he rediscovered that winning feel in Andalucía, where he got to the semi-finals before losing to compatriot Jaume Munar.

Subsequent to that he was beaten in the first round in Barcelona, and after qualifying for Estoril was defeated at the same stage by Marin Cilic. However, he took the world number 42 to three sets, and made him work hard for his win.

Mannarino Struggles on Clay

Mannarino has lost both of his two previous matches on clay this year, beaten at the first round stage in both Monte Carlo and Barcelona.

That is indicative of his wider career though, with the Frenchman enjoying all his success in hard and grass court events, which are more suited to his aggressive style of play.

2021, though, has not been his best year on tour by a long chalk so far, with his best result coming at the Australian Open, where he reached the third round before losing to Alexander Zverev.

He has only won two matches since, in Singapore and Miami, and would appear to be low in confidence at the moment. What he would hope for is to take his memories from the year-ending season of 2020 as he looks to challenge his opponent in this opener

Alcaraz v Mannarino Prediction and Tip

Although Mannarino is ranked considerably higher in the world, Alcaraz would appear to hold all the cards in this match. He is in form, is playing on home soil, and enjoys playing on clay.
