Alcaraz is looking for No. 1
With Novak Djokovic banned from the US Masters 1000 doubles for remaining unvaccinated, this is an opportunity for Alcaraz to reclaim the No. 1 ranking.
No matter how long that takes.
If he wins Indian Wells, he’s No. 1 again – at least until the end of Miami, where he’s defending a title and 1000 points and therefore has nothing to add.
Medvedev will be back in the top 5 at No. 5 no matter what.
While both will be motivated to win a Masters 1000, the fact that the No. 1 is at stake for Alcaraz only adds spice.

Alcaraz’s semi-final match against his young wild Jannik Sinner should be a box-office hit – especially after their classic late-night and early-morning quarter-final at last summer’s US Open.
The reality wasn’t quite so epic. In the end, Alcaraz narrowly won (in the first set), but straight sets, 7-6 (4), 6-3 against the 21-year-old Italian.
The two movements lasted almost two hours. But Alcaraz’s 72 percent first serve share helped him avoid many problems on his serve; Sinner only created two breakpoints.
The teenager went 13-to-18 at net while Sinner was only 9-to-21.
Those net skills could come in handy against Medvedev on Sunday.

Medevev too strong for Tiafoe
In the first semifinal of the day, Frances Tiafoe Medvedev gave everything he had.
SEVEN match point saves and lots of drama 😨

But even reaching the semi-finals at Indian Wells was a great achievement. He took advantage of the Russian getting tight (admittedly) to try and close it. But in general he just wasn’t able to create many opportunities on Medvedev’s serve, while Medvedev had eleven break point opportunities (and converted three) on Tiafoe’s serve.

A rivalry that has not yet begun
It’s easy to forget, as good as Alcaraz is, that he’s still in his first moments on the ATP Tour.
He has only played once against Medvedev so far. And that was almost two years ago when he started the 2021 season in 146th place. He advanced into the top 100 after winning a challenger in Portugal just before his second attempt in qualifying at the French Open. Which he survived without any problems and then went into the third round of the peloton.

He didn’t play again until Wimbledon – his debut there. Actually his first professional games on grass, period. He had previously played a Tuneup event and Junior Wimbledon in 2019.
And after winning his first round in five sets, Alcaraz didn’t have much love for Medvedev, who is definitely not a weed fan. But even then, the Russian only lost seven games.
This one should be very different.
Alcaraz vs Medvedev prediction
Such a tough call for this one. There is so little data on these two.
But it feels like it will take a supreme effort to beat the 19-year-old Spaniard this week.
He has the skills to exploit Medvedev’s deep court positioning. And he will need her.
Unless he’s getting tight for the stakes (at least it won’t be his first No. 1 rodeo), it looks like he’s the winner.
