Carreno-Busta vs Aliassime prediction
Carreno Busta vs Auger-Aliassime, ATP Rotterdam Semi-finals, Hard court(indoor)
Carreno-Busta(ranked 30) didnt have the best season in 2019, but at times managed to show his specific, more defensive playstyle and grind some solid results. He has won 6 out of the 9 matches played in 2020, including winning 2 times at Australian Open before losing 0-3 to R.Nadal. In Rotterdam he defeated Mannariono(7-5, 6-7, 6-4), Bautista-Agut ( 6-4, 2-6, 7-6), and Jannik Sinner(7-5, 3-6, 7-6). All 3 of the matches went to the distance, with him needing tie breaks and close, dramatic moments to progress. In his match vs Sinner Busta was 5-3 at one point, but after missing a few match points he managed to comeback from 4-6 in the tie break. He was pushed to his limits on serve, managing to grind out points, showing great mentall power.
Auger-Aliassime(ranked 21) is a young and extremely talented canadian player. Out of the 13 matches he has played in 2020, he managed to win 7 times. At the start of the season he shows lack of consistency, lost in the 1st round of Australian Open, but also managed to take a set off Rublev and deliver strong results in Rotterdam. In the previous 3 round here he won against J. Lennar-Struff(6-3, 1-6, 6-3), Dimitrov(6-4 6-2) and Bedene- who had already defeated favorite Tsitsipas - ( 6-4 7-6).
Aliasime had arguably tougher opponents so far and managed to deliver solid performance. He is serving good, showing a lot of energy and this should be a problem for Careno-Busta. Busta impressed with the way he handled out-of-form Sinner, but his defensive style will not be able to hold vs Aliasime. Busta might make this close, but he will eventually get outclassed.
I feel this is the tournament where Aliasim will build momentum and winning streak. Busta can not grind another long match.
