Vienna Open 2021: Andy Murray vs. Carlos Alcaraz Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Vienna Open as Andy Murray meets Carlos Alcaraz in the Round of 16 on Wednesday October 27th, 2021.

The exciting young Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz will do battle with former world number one Andy Murray in a hugely exciting Round of 16 clash here at the 2021 Vienna Open. This is a repeat of their match a few weeks ago where Murray won in three thrilling sets. They both seem to be in great form here in Austria, who will get the win and advance to the Quarter-Finals?

Andy Murray is a two time former Vienna Open champion and former world number one. After a long bout with injuries, the Scotsman seems to be finally getting back to his best with some strong recent performances. An invigorated Murray upset the 5th seeded Hubert Hurkacz in the First Round in an incredible performance. He moved extremely well during this match, and his defence was impeccable against the big-hitting world number 10. In this sort of form it will only be a matter of time before he breaks back into the top 100, and approaching the top 50 in a couple months is not out of the question. He is in for a tough match here against the talented teenager Carlos Alcaraz, and his fitness and experience will be crucial here at the 2021 Vienna Open.

Carlos Alcaraz is one of the most exciting young players in recent memory, and at only 18 years old he is already ranked 42, and won his first title of his career a few months ago in Estoril. The young Spaniard has been in decent form lately, reaching his first major Quarter-Final at the US Open before losing in the First Round at Indian Wells to his current opponent, Andy Murray. This match is poised to be just as exciting as that one, where Murray won in three thrilling sets. Alcaraz is one of the cleanest ball strikers out there, and moves extremely well. However, his serve and consistency can sometimes be weaknesses, and he needs those areas to be on point if he is to avenge that Indian Wells defeat. He started strongly here at the 2021 Vienna Open, dominating the dangerous Dan Evans in straight sets, which will have given him confidence heading into the Second Round.

This will be the second meeting between the two players on the ATP Tour, with Andy Murray leading the head to head 1-0. They played a few weeks ago in Indian Wells, with the Scotsman winning in three tight sets. I am expecting yet another close battle here at the 2021 Vienna Open, with not much to separate the two players who are both playing very well. With all things considered, I am going with Andy Murray to get the win again here. Carlos Alcaraz is an incredibly talented player, but Murray has been in fantastic form lately and his confidence is growing by the day. His confidence coupled with his extensive experience will make him extremely difficult to beat here, and I expect him to win yet another three set battle, advancing to the Quarter-Finals here at the 2021 Vienna Open.
