Jannik Sinner vs Miomir Kecmanovic prediction

Sinner will enter the match as the favorite to win but Kecmanovic has produced some really good performances this season and should not be written off.

The Italian will look to be aggressive from the start of the match and could try to mix his powerful groundstrokes with slices and drop shots. Sinner also has the ability to grind out a win from tough situations due to his on-court composure.

Kecmanovic has won 15 out of 21 matches on hardcourts this season and produced some good performances in Indian Wells and Miami. The Serb has a strong serve but is also susceptible to double faults, having served seven of those in his previous match.

He has become a lot more aggressive these days and is capable of giving Sinner a stern fight. He will have to be at his absolute best to stand chance of beating the Italian. In the end, however, Sinner should be able to get the better of Kecmanovic and move to the last 16 in Cincinnati.

Pick: Sinner to win in straight sets.
