Jannik Sinner vs Alex de Minaur Tips, Prediction & Preview

Alex de Minaur will need to draw on the support of his home crowd as he prepares to confront rising star and top 10 player Jannik Sinner in the Australian Open fourth round on Monday.

Sinner has swiftly climbed through the ranks to solidify himself as a top 10 player and it only seems like a matter of time before the Italian starts contending for Grand Slam titles.

That time could easily be now at Melbourne Park, with Sinner advancing to the fourth round for the first time courtesy of wins over Joao Sousa, Steve Johnson and Taro Daniel.

Sinner has been remarkably dominant when winning matches over the last few months – indeed, 20 of his last 22 wins have been in straight sets. That means when he takes a lead, Sinner is usually closing out his opponents ruthlessly.

Meanwhile, de Minaur has taken advantage of a fairly soft draw to advance into the fourth round of his home slam for the first time, taking out Lorenzo Musetti in four sets in the opening round before cruising past Kamil Majchrzak and Pablo Andujar in straight sets.

After a tough season in 2021, de Minaur is looking much better already in 2022 after declaring he’s in the best shape of his life, winning six of his seven matches and taking the top 10 scalp of Matteo Berrettini at the ATP Cup in Sydney.

In saying that, the 23-year-old has struggled against top 10 players throughout his career, losing 23 of 28 matches. The first set is crucial – if de Minaur can snatch it, he may be a chance against a still inexperienced player in these situations, but if Sinner gets an early lead, expect the Italian to close it out in three of four sets.
