Finland’s finest has already upset third seed Alexander Zverev and another Next Gen protege Carlos Alcaraz thus far in just his second Masters 1000 tournament. Who will claim a quarter-final ticket?
Fellow Top 100 teenagers Sebastian Korda and Lorenzo Musetti remain in contention.
Korda, a breakout star at RG 2020, toppled world No.17 Fabio Fognini from a set down to earn a duel with the man of the moment Aslan Karatsev.
The Russian, who lifted his first ATP title in Dubai, lost to Korda in RG 2020 qualifying. A lot has changed for both since then…
Meanwhile Italian world No.94 Musetti, having taken down Michael Mmoh and Benoit Paire in straight sets, is gunning for glory against 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic.
Four explosive and versatile talents, all with a chance to make a Masters 1000 mark.
