Carlos Alcaraz vs Grigor Dimitrov: 2024 Miami Open - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz has been looking unchallenged at the 2024 Miami Open so far, but Grigor Dimitrov may write a different story.

Dimitrov has been one of the best players on the ATP Tour in the past year. The Bulgarian has been playing at a Top 10 level for a while now, and this run at the Miami Open only proves that.

He'll have a chance to prove his worth against Alcaraz, who has looked every bit like a player who might lift the trophy this week. The Spaniard found himself lifting the trophy last week in Indian Wells, and he's kept up the good play in Miami.

He's going to face a player who beat him the last time they played, so there should be some added motivation for the 20-year-old Spaniard in this match.


Alcaraz and Dimitrov played a few times so far, and the Spaniard leads the H2H 3-1. The funny thing about their matches is that they have played on all surfaces. They played indoors, and Alcaraz won that match.

They played on clay, and Alcaraz again won on the red surface. They also played on the grass, and Alcaraz once again won. The only match Dimitrov won was played on outdoor hard courts at last year's Shanghai Masters.

It was at a time when Alcaraz wasn't playing as well as he is now, and even then, it was barely a win for Dimitrov.

I think the Bulgarian will have a chance in this match, but it will largely depend on Alcaraz. He's looked very confident in recent matches, and he loves to play in Miami. He won the event two years ago and made the semi-final last year, so there is something working for him.

Prediction: Carlos Alcaraz to win in two sets.
