Carlos Alcaraz vs Emil Ruusuvouri: Top seed Carlos Alcaraz will open his Madrid Masters campaign against Finland’s Emil Ruusuvouri on Friday (April 28).

Alcaraz will enter the tournament after a successful Barcelona Open last week. He defended his title in Barcelona to lift his third trophy of the season. This season, his win-loss record is 23-2 and 6-1 in Madrid.

After missing the Australian Open due to injury, he lifted the Argentina Open trophy, was outclassed by Cameron Norrie in Rio de Janeiro final, then went on to win his second title of the year by beating Daniil Medvedev at the BNP Paribas in Indian Wells. However, he couldn’t complete his Sunshine Double after being knocked from the Miami Masters in the semifinal against Jannik Sinner.

Talking about Ruusuvouri, the Finnish is still searching for his first title this season. His best result was his reaching the quarterfinal in Miami this year. The 41st-ranked is 14-11 while on clay, he is 3-1 this year. He entered his maiden Madrid Masters tournament after a Round of 16 exit in Barcelona.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Emil Ruusuvouri: Who will be the winner?

Alcaraz undoubtedly is in sublime form right now. His powerful serve, and attack from the baseline, not to forget he is super dominating on clay as he won 52 of his 64 matches on the red dirt as compared to Ruusuvouri’s 12-17 on clay. Ruusuvouri’s inconsistency is another thing which makes Alcaraz win this match despite being beaten in their lone encounter.

Prediction: Alcaraz is in three sets.
