Top seed Jannik Sinner will battle big-hitting Karen Khachanov in the fourth round of the 2024 Madrid Open. The match is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, April 30, 2024. Here's our Jannik Sinner vs Karen Khachanov prediction.

Jannik Sinner vs Karen Khachanov Preview

Jannik Sinner was cruising in his third-round match against Pavel Kotov before hip injury concerns surfaced in the second set. Kotov secured a break in the second set and served to level the match before Sinner responded. The Italian saved a set point en route to a 6-2, 7-5 win that will surely give his next opponent, Karen Khachanov, the self-belief that he is vulnerable.

Khachanov, for his part, advanced to his second straight fourth round at the Madrid Open after beating Italy's Flavio Cobolli in straight sets. The 16th seed won 89% of first-serve points and converted two of his three break points. Khachanov did not face a single break point on his serve and backed up his three-set win over Bautista Agut in his first match to progress. He will seek to reach the quarterfinal stage in Madrid for a second straight year.

Jannik Sinner vs Karen Khachanov Head-To-Head

Sinner and Khachanov have met five times on the ATP tour. The Italian leads the head-to-head 4-1. Their most recent clash was at the 2024 Australian Open, where Sinner won in straight sets. They have never played on a clay court before.

Jannik Sinner vs Karen Khachanov Prediction

I think this match will tell us whether Sinner's hip injury might be cause for concern. The Italian was virtually unbeatable in the first quarter of 2024, but since making a pitstop on clay, he's not had the most seamless transition. Sinner battled cramps in a semifinal defeat in Monte Carlo. And with Khachanov hitting the ball almost as effortlessly as Sinner, he'll certainly be fancying the upset here. The conditions will give his groundstrokes a little bit more bite to penetrate Sinner's defenses. I like the Russian's chances of stealing a set in this one.
