TennisSection previews the 2021 Andalucia Open as Jaume Munar meets Carlos Alcaraz in the Semi-Finals on Saturday, April 10th 2021.
Will Carlos Alcaraz continue to put on extremely solid performances here at the 2021 Andalucia Open as he looks to have a breakthrough season in 2021? Will Jaume Munar use all of his expertise gained on clay over the last few years and use that confidence to get himself into the Final? Both players have been very solid here in Andalucia, and they are both deserving to make the Final, but only one will. Who will it be?
Jaume Munar came through an extremely tight 3-set match against the in form Ilya Ivashka, beating him (5)6-7/6-4/6-4. Jaume Munar is a very underrated clay-courter and he has put on some incredible performances against some big name players in the past in these conditions, such as Dominic Thiem at the Rio Open in 2020. Munar was trained and mentored by the Rafa Nadal Academy and Nadal himself and he will have a lot of expertise that will aid him in this match. Munar, although short, has a strong serve and when his serve is not firing, he is able to move around the court with great speed to ensure he will get himself into rallies. Munar now meets an extremely tough opponent in Carlos Alcaraz and he will have to ensure he is at his peak if he wants to make the Final.
Carlos Alcaraz put on a great performance against Casper Ruud in the Quarter-final, beating the much more experienced player in 2 sets, 6-2/6-4. Alcaraz is having a great week here, having already beaten the likes of Feliciano Lopez. Carlos Alcaraz will be feeling extremely confident with his playing style at the moment, and he has been impressing the tennis world with his amazing talent, especially on clay at such a young age. Carlos is on top of his game, and he also continues to improve, but he will also have to ensure he does not get too far ahead of himself with confidence and he needs to make sure he focused on the next task at hand. Beating the experienced Jaume Munar. Will Carlos Alcaraz be able to win and make his way to his first Final in 2021?
Jaume Munar and Carlos Alcaraz have never met before, with this being their first encounter on the ATP Tour. This is definitely going to be a very interesting and tight match in the Semi-finals of the 2021 Andalucia Open, and both players can win it if they are in their best form. Although Munar has a lot more experience in these conditions and has shown some strong results over the last few years, I believe that Carlos Alcaraz is going to come out here ready to give it his all and continue shining in his breakthrough season. It will be tight, but Alcaraz will continue impressing everyone in the ATP Tour and make his way to the Final of the 2021 Andalucia Open.
