TennisSection previews the 2021 Next Gen ATP Finals as Carlos Alcaraz takes on Sebastian Baez in the semifinals on Friday, November 12th, 2021.
Will Carlos Alcaraz get the win? Will Sebastian Baez pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we have a fascinating matchup with the favorite taking on a surprise contender. Who will move on to the final of the 2021 Next Gen ATP Finals?
Carlos Alcaraz got a solid win over Cerundolo to set up this meeting with Sebastian Baez. Alcaraz should not underestimate him, as Baez is here for a reason, but I do ultimately expect Alcaraz to get the win in straight sets. Alcaraz has been playing unbelievable tennis this week, even playing arguably the best point of the year. He’s been hitting some huge balls, playing a very versatile game, and just at a much higher level in general. So considering the experience of Baez, I expect Alcaraz to comfortably get the win to book his place in the final of the Next Gen ATP Finals.
Sebastian Baez got a nice win over Gaston to come out second in his group to take on Carlos Alcaraz, the undisputed favorite for the title. In order to take him out, he will have to focus on serving big and hoping to make it deep into the set, while it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to consistently hold against him, he will have to try. Alcaraz will likely just overpower him from the back of the court and be the one who’s playing aggressively in the points, taking advantage of the inexperience of Baez to book his spot in the final at the 2021 Next Gen ATP Finals.
Carlos Alcaraz and Sebastian Baez have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Baez is a newcomer, and to take on Carlos Alcaraz will be a very difficult task. He did make it here for a reason, so I do think he can definitely push Alcaraz, it’s just very unlikely that he’ll be able to do anything beyond that as despite the fact that Alcaraz can show mental fragility in tough situations, his results and ranking speak for himself as he aims to make the last two to fight for the 2021 Next Gen ATP Finals crown.
