Jannik Sinner v John Millman Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 20-year old Italian, and the Australian, who is 12 years older.
Sinner Makes His Indian Wells’ Debut
Sinner has never played at Indian Wells before, having still been playing on the junior tours that last time the event was played.
He was given a first round bye, but arrives in California full of confidence, having just won his third title of the year in Sofia, where he beat Gael Monfils in the final.
It was his performance in the first Masters event of the year, in Miami, that may give him cause for optimism. He may have lost eventually to Hubert Hurkasz, but that was his first appearance in a Masters’ final and proved, if there were any doubt, that he belongs at the top level.
The Italian has every incentive to do well in this tournament. A good points haul here and he can virtually book his place in the season-ending ATP finals, which are being held on home soil in Turin.
Millman Beats Sock
Millman has by and large, had a disappointing season, failing to build after winning his maiden ATP title in Kazakhstan last November.
His defence of that title ended at the quarter-final stage in Nur-Sultan, the same round he lost to Marcos Giron in Sofia last week.
However, at least he got his latest campaign in California off to a winning start, even if he was made to work hard for the victory by the wildcard Jack Sock, now ranked 162nd in the world.
Millman drew first blood with the first break of serve of the match, but Sock immediately levelled the match, The Australian then had a set point saved, but he broke the American for a second time, and served out from there.
The pair swapped breaks at the start of the second set, but this time it was Millman’s turn to falter and he dropped his serve once more. Sock was able to bring the match back to all square.
And when the Australian was broken early in the third set, the omens did not look good for him. He is though, an experienced pro, and he did not panic.
Having saved two more break points he broke back, and then broke Sock again and went on to close out the match.
Sinner v Millman Prediction and Tip
Sinner is playing his first match at Indian Wells, but that is unlikely to unnerve him, especially as he is full of confidence having won in Sofia last week. Millman will be an obdurate opponent, but the Italian should be too good for him.
