Alcaraz in search of No. 1
With Novak Djokovic missing Indian Wells again because his unvaccinated status doesn’t allow him to enter the United States, Alcaraz can reclaim top spot in the ATP Tour rankings if he wins Indian Wells.
He’s already defended a semi-final result in the desert so that tells you how he’s hovering for the top spot despite missing the Australian Open. He won Miami a year ago so first place will likely be at stake again as anything but a title defense would see Alcaraz fall again.

Alcaraz’s win over Félix Auger-Aliassime in Thursday night’s quarter-finals was a wake-up call for the Canadian – and, he said, for the rest of the Tour as well. They all have to improve in all areas because facing a fresh, healthy Alcaraz is a big, big challenge.
Auger-Aliassime came into play with a 3-0 record against the Spaniard but he had never played against Alcaraz and it was all he could do even in a 6-4, 6-4 defeat by staying close to the Canadians wasn’t bad at all.
Alcaraz is that good. Which is no secret to anyone.

Final encounter with an epic marathon
There are games that are remembered for a long time. And Alcaraz vs. Sinner at the US Open is one of them.
The speed these two showed well into the sixth hour was so mind-blowing it was like watching a game of ping-pong fast-forward.
The surface at Indian Wells is notoriously much slower. But that won’t slow down their foot speed at all.
When asked Thursday night, Alcaraz said he thinks he’s faster. But this sinner hit the ball harder.
The Spaniard showed no weaknesses on the Indian Wells court; If Sinner’s victory over defending champion Taylor Fritz came as a surprise to some, Alcaraz will be an even more daunting challenge.

Alcaraz vs. sinner prediction
Sinner is playing well enough that the Italian can take advantage, following the theory that Alcaraz will slump a bit.
Alcaraz hasn’t played much tennis this season either. And despite the stretched 12-day schedule, it’s his first hard court of the season and it’s tough on the body on the slow court.
Sinner’s ball shot is good – no, he’s great. And it’s enough to leave Alcaraz a little more defensive than he’d like. And it might also give him less time to be as aggressive as he wants.
That momentum on the faster US Open hard court was very strong in play. Because of this, this is expected to be another marathon in our Alcaraz vs. Sinner prediction.
Over 25.5 total games have odds of +122.
