Mackenzie McDonald vs Quentin Halys Match Preview

A maiden fourth-round spot in a Masters 1000 beckons for one of Mackenzie McDonald and Quentin Halys. Who will prevail in this enticing third-round match at the 2023 Miami Masters?

Mackenzie McDonald reached the third round stage at the Miami Masters last year. He’s got a chance to better that result this time as he is set to play an unseeded player in Quentin Halys. It is a massive opportunity for both, so nerves will likely kick in. And with McDonald certain to enjoy the majority of the home support he starts as the odds-on favorite on Monday.

Quentin Halys, meanwhile, earned a shock win on Monday as he became one of three Frenchmen to reach the third-round stage at the 2023 Miami Masters. It took him three hours and 18 minutes to score his first top-20 scalp of the season by beating Australia’s Alex De Minaur. Halys was 7-6 5-2 down at one point, but saved three match points to win 6-7, 7-6, 7-6 in one of the most thrilling matches of the day. Let’s see how he will fare against home favorite Mackenzie McDonald.

Mackenzie McDonald vs Quentin Halys Prediction and Pick

Mackenzie McDonald and Quentin Halys have not clashed on the ATP Tour, but will do so at the 2023 Miami Masters. McDonald came through a tight two-setter against Matteo Berrettini. I don’t expect this to be any easier for the American despite being odds-on here. Yes, he has great counterpunching skills and can always frustrate a big hitter by keeping him in the loop for one more ball. But I feel the only logical choice to oppose McDonald is taking the set handicap on the Frenchman.
