With number 7 in Umag, Carlos Alcaraz, a rising tennis star, is seeded.
The young player is only the fourth tennis player to have won 4 Challenger titles before the age of 18.
In Croatia he was not lucky in the draw, his first rival will be the experienced Lucas Pouille, who has been playing poorly recently.
This will be the first game between these tennis players. Looking at the form of both players in recent weeks, but also throughout 2021, it is not surprising that bookmakers rate the chances of the young player from Spain much higher.
Of course, Pouille is a very experienced player, winner of five ATP events and a tennis player from the TOP 10 in the world ranking three years ago, but recently the French is a shadow of that player in my opinion.
