Carlos Alcaraz vs Karen Khachanov: World No.2 Carlos Alcaraz will be facing 10th-seeded Karen Khachanov in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Madrid Open Masters on Wednesday (May 30).
Alcaraz reached the stage after breezing past the likes of Alexander Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov, and Emil Ruusuvuori in the previous stages. Except for the match against Ruusuvuori, Alacarz racked up wins in straight sets. After beating Zverev in the fourth round, the Spaniard improved his win-loss record this season to 26-2. He has already lifted three trophies so far; his first came at the Argentina Open, followed by winning the BNP Paribas in Indian Wells, and recently defended his Barcelona Open title.
Karen Khachanov, meanwhile, is still looking for his first trophy of the season. In the present tournament, he knocked out the likes of Andrey Rublev, Roberto Bautista Agut, and Thiago Monterio in the previous stages. He has a 19-8 win-loss record this season.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Karen Khachanov prediction
Needless to mention that both of them are baseliners but Khachanov’s inconsistency hampers his chances to win. On the other hand, Alcaraz is the favorite to win the title here owing to his great form and powerful game of tennis. His biggest strengths are his serve, famous drop shots, and groundstrokes, and he has the ability to hit winners from several different angles. It’s difficult to think of any other winner at this moment on red dirt other than Alcaraz.
Prediction: Alcaraz in straight sets.
