US Open 2021: Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Bernabe Zapata Miralles Tennis Pick and Prediction

US Open 2021: Felix Auger-Aliassime vs Bernabe Zapata Miralles Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 US Open as Felix Auger-Aliassime takes on Bernabe Zapata Miralles in the Round of 64 on Wednesday, September 1st, 2021.

Will Felix Auger-Aliassime go through? Will Bernabe Zapata Miralles pull off the upset? This match will be an interesting one, where we will see one of the most powerful players on the ATP Tour in action once again, and where his level is at to see what kind of damage he can do at this year’s Open. Who will move on to the Round of 32 at the 2021 US Open?

Felix Auger-Aliassime had a not so convincing win in his first round match, barely winning in four sets, all three of his sets being tiebreaker wins. Auger-Aliassime is definitely not very consistent, with his forehand being incredibly choppy, where it could miss at any moment. If he can play consistently and aggressively, then he is very good and can do a ton of damage in this tournament. He has a fantastic opportunity to move through to the Round of 32 at this year’s US Open, coming up against Bernabe Zapata Miralles. Despite the inconsistency of Auger-Aliassime, Zapata Miralles is much lower ranked and does not have the level of Felix. I predict for Auger-Aliassime to be able to take some confidence from his win and poor it into this match, taking it in a pretty easy straight sets.

Bernabe Zapata Miralles barely got through against Feliciano Lopez, defeating him in five sets. The fellow Spaniard has not been playing too well lately, so to barely beat him is not a good sign when you’re taking on one of the best players in the world. Yes, Felix Auger-Aliassime is inconsistent, but he’s still at the top of the game for a reason, and will most likely deliver a straight sets crushing, especially considering that Zapata Miralles must be rather tired after that brutal five setter. It will definitely be interesting to see how Auger-Aliassime handles him, but I suspect even if he’s missing a lot of balls and not feeling it spot on, he’ll take the match without much resistance to head through to the next round at the 2021 US Open.

Felix Auger-Aliassime and Bernabe Zapata Miralles have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s not too diverse of a match-up, with Auger-Aliassime most likely going to use his incredible power to simply outhit Zapata Miralles, and blow him off the court. Auger-Aliassime has very big strokes and quite a big serve as well, so I suspect him to have little issues on his serve on the speedy courts of Flushing Meadows this year. I expect him to get some confidence from this win and use his huge game to progress pretty far here this year at the 2021 US Open.
