There’s no match history between these two players.
Kecmanovic is playing well at the moment, and he has a punchers chance if he gets his first serve in at a high percentage. However, Alcaraz is on a different planet right now with wins in 22 of his last 24 sets, and he’s quickly making a push for a top-10 ranking if he stays in this form. I’m not stepping in front of the Spaniard right now.
Give me Alcaraz in straight sets.
