Both Auger-Aliassime and Hurkacz are strong competitors on grass courts; at Wimbledon last year, they advanced to the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively. The two make decent servers.
Hurkacz struck 10 aces and won 82 percent of his first-serve points, compared to Auger-15 Aliassime’s aces and 80% of his first serve points won. The player that makes the most of their breakpoint opportunities will win this match because there won’t be many of them.
In his second-round matchup with McDonald, Auger-Aliassime got off to a poor start but came out swinging in the second set. The Canadian was playing at the top of his game. He was moving well, his groundstrokes were crisp and on target, and he used tremendous strategy to defeat.
Hurkacz has performed admirably this week as well. He moves quite well on the court and is simply too reliable from the baseline. During his second-round battle versus Humbert, the Pole also improved as the game went on.
Both players have a chance to win in this match, which is likely to go the distance. The season-long consistency of Auger-Aliassime, though, gives him a minor lead over his rival.
Prediction: Felix Auger-Aliassime will win the match.
