Daniil Medvedev vs Carlos Alcaraz: World No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz will face World No.6 Daniil Medvedev on Sunday (March 19) at the summit clash of the Indian Wells 2023.
It’s a golden opportunity for Alcaraz to replace World No.1 Novak Djokovic, who has been denied entry into the US due to his vaccination status. But it won’t be a cakewalk for the 19-year-old when he will face the Russian who clinched three ATP trophies this season.
It’s the teenager’s third final in as many tournaments this season. Alcaraz won the Buenos Aires this year and went on to take part in Rio de Janeiro but Cameron Norrie snatched the victory from him. Alcaraz then missed the Dubai Open to recover and rest, before entering into season’s first ATP Masters 1000 tournament. He is now 13-1 this season.

En route to his first-ever BNP Paribas final, the Spaniard did not drop a single set. He eliminated the likes of Thanasi Kokkinakis, Tallon Griekspoor, Jack Draper, Felix Auger-Aliassime, and Jannik Sinner.
Medvedev will be playing his fourth final on the trot. He outclassed Brandon Nakashima, Ilya Ivashka, Alexander Zverev, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, and Frances Tiafoe to secure a berth for the final.
The former World No.1 did not face a single defeat since losing at the Australian Open 2023. He clinched titles at Rotterdam, Doha, and Dubai, and now he is 24-2 in 2023. Also Read: Aryna Sabalenka Vs Elena Rybakina Match Prediction, Head-To-Head, Preview, And Live Stream| Indian Wells 2023

Daniil Medvedev vs Carlos Alcaraz: Who will be the winner?
Though the two met just once two years ago on the grass court, the Indian Wells will be completely different for the 19-year-old Alcaraz. But it won’t be easier for the teenager when he will square off with Medvedev as the Russian is on a roll this year.
The two are now the most in-form players this season apart from Novak Djokovic. But the court doesn’t suit Medvedev. He has complained a lot about the slow and high-bouncing surface but that doesn’t mean it will be easy to defeat him. He is finding different ways to become more aggressive. The Russian is on a 19-match winning streak and will be playing for his fourth trophy in a row in consecutive weeks.
Prediction: Daniil Medvedev will win in three sets.
