The Masters National Bank Open in Toronto, Canada, has provided its customers with great tennis all week long. ATP Toronto leaves 8 quarterfinalists battling this weekend for the title and 1,000 standing points. Friday’s quarterfinals featured some incredible matchups, including world No. 1 Carlos. Algaraz against Tommy Paul The American We at LWOT have previews and predictions for that race and all other events around the Toronto area. But who will get through to the semi-finals?
ATP Toronto Quarterfinals Prediction
Alejandro Davidovic Fokina vs Mackenzie McDonald
face to face: Davidovic Fokina 1-0 McDonald’s
The winner of the Alejandro Davidovich Fokina/Mackenzie McDonald quarterfinals will reach the semifinals in his hard court masters career for the first time. McDonald’s has been playing great tennis for the past 6 weeks. This week he defeated Karatsev Rub and Raonic without losing a set. Davidovich Fokina came to Toronto amid a 1-3 spell but looked superb in This week in a win over Wolf, Zverev and Ruud, both men play offensive tennis. Hug the baseline and move your opponent from side to side. The competition is scheduled to last 3 hours and 3 setters, with the winner being the player who increases their level in the most critical time. I give the American a slight edge, who I believe has the current confidence to maintain his form throughout the race.
Prediction: McDonald’s in 3
Daniel Medvedev vs Alex de Minar
face to face: Medvedev 4-1 Minar
Dani Medvedev has shed tears on the hardcourt this season. The world No. 3 has a 31-3 record on the surface, including a 26-1 mark since February. He is yet to lose two matches in Toronto. Medvedev faces a tough test against Alex de Minar in the quarter-finals. The Aussie has already scooped No. 8 seed Taylor Fritz and No. 11 Cameron Norrie. He’s back on his favorite course. Show off your great moves and endurance in the Toronto rally. I believe Medvedev’s big serve will make the difference in this match. De Minaur is powerless to penetrate the Russian from the base.
Prediction: Medvedev in 2
Yannick Sinner VS Gael Monfils
face to face: Sinners 3-1 Monfils
Young Italian Yannick Sinner takes on French veteran Gael Monfils. In what is likely to prove to be an incredibly entertaining battle, the Monfils have finally returned to their feet on the ATP Tour for the past two weeks. He won consecutive tournaments last week in DC for the first time since August 2022. He is now in his first Masters quarterfinal since the 2021 Canadian Open. Seven Masters titles during that time, the 21-year-old Italian is one of the best ball-handling strikers on tour. He’s 22-5 in hard court this season. Monfils will push Italy, but Sinner is too strong from the ground up.
Prophecy: Sinners in 3
Carlos Alcaraz vs. Tommy Paul
face to face: Alcaraz 1-1 Paul
Carlos Alcaraz proved why he is the No. 1 player in the world. The 20-year-old Spaniard is 49-4 this year with a 12-1 lead in hard court. He overcame a determined deficit to topple Hubert. Hurkacz, the No. 15 seed, is in the Round of 16. His quarterfinal opponent is 26-year-old American Tommy Paul. Alcaraz and Paul split just two meetings. With the Americans outperforming the Spaniards in a 6-7 7-6 6-3 battle at the 2022 Canadian Open, this tournament should be as entertaining as the fight it was. His level and use of his clever shots to keep Paul out of balance.
Prediction: Alcaraz in 3
