Andy Murray aims to do the double over Carlos Alcaraz when the pair collide in the Round of 16 at the Vienna Open on Wednesday.
Experience meets youth for the second time in the space of a month as multiple Grand Slam winner Murray takes on 18-year-old emerging star Alcaraz.
Murray, 34, came from a set down to prevail in a decider at Indian Wells a fortnight ago and has shown glimpses of a return to his vintage best in recent times.
The Scot secured his first top ten victory of the year against in-form Hubert Hurkacz on Monday, avenging his defeats in Cincinnati and Metz earlier this year by coming through a gruelling contest which lasted two hours and 41 minutes.
Murray’s wildcard pick for numerous events of late has seen him run into the top names in the early rounds, but the veteran has underlined his trademark grit and tenacity to prove he is still more than a match.
Alcaraz announced himself as a star of the future by reaching the Quarter-Finals of the recent US Open at Flushing Meadows as he bids to follow in the footsteps of fellow Spaniard Rafa Nadal.
The young right-hander picked up his first ATP title on clay at the Croatian Open in July and is looking to make it back-to-back wins over British opposition this week, having dumped out Dan Evans in the previous round.
Alcaraz’s victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas at the US Open proved he has no fear of facing the sport’s top names on the big stage and he will be relishing the opportunity to gain revenge on Murray here.
Murray’s marathon match against Hurkacz may have taken a lot out of the Scot physically, and for that reason we’re opting for a first head-to-head win for Alcaraz as the outsider of the two at 13/10 with Bet365.
