Carlos scored three victories in the Argentine capital, but it is worth noting that the Spaniard has not yet had really strong opponents. Serbs Djere and Lajovic are strong opponents and good quarterbacks, but nothing more. And Zapata Miralles, firstly, is well researched by Carlos, and secondly, he is also far from the top. The match against Bernabe lasted one hour and 17 minutes and ended with the score 6:2, 6:2. Alcaraz stats this match: 3/0 aces/doubles, 73%/60 serve points, 50/65% return points. Pretty good stats from Alcaraz, however, once again we note that the upcoming meeting does not need to be measured against Carlos’s previous matches at the tournament in Buenos Aires.

After the Australian Open, in which Norrie reached the third round and lost to Lehechka, the Briton played two matches of the national team in the Davis Cup, won both and came to the tournament in the capital of Argentina. In Buenos Aires, Cameron played three matches, of course he won all of them. Norri’s rivals were the two Argentines Diaz Acosta and Etcheverri, as well as the Peruvian Varillas. The semi-final against Varillas lasted almost two hours, and Norrie won it 7-6, 6-4 in one hour and 54 minutes. The Brit’s stats in this game: 3/1 aces/doubles, 73%/71% first serve points, 29%/57% return points. Norrie has one tournament win on clay to his name, in 2022 Cameron won the title in Lyon.

Alcaraz and Norrie played each other four times, 3-1 in favor of the Spaniard. Carlos overtook Cameron at the 2021 US Open, on hard Indian Wells and on Madrid clay in 2022. Norrie got his revenge in Cincinnati in 2022. In Madrid, the guys met in the 1/8 finals, the match turned out to be long, because it lasted two hours and 41 minutes, Alcaraz won it with the score 6:4, 6:7, 6:3.

Alcaraz is slowly recovering from the injury, but it cannot be said that the Spaniard is now in optimal shape, for Alcaraz the tournament in Buenos Aires is the first of this year. Naturally, the Spaniard wants to be the winner of the tournament in the Argentine capital, and it is very likely that he will. However, we repeat, we believe that bookmakers underestimate the British. Norrie can’t be called a very strong cop, but Cameron has the Lyon trophy in his collection, and Norrie chose the clay courts of South America, not the indura of Europe, probably just like that. In addition, the guys once played on the ground and Norrie fought the Spaniard, he lost, but in three sets, by +4.5 handicap. Well, let’s not point out that Norrie won the last personal meeting with Alcaraz, i.e. the Brit has experience of winning against the Spaniard, although not on clay courts.

The main prediction is for Norri to win with a (5.5) handicap of 1.70
