Prediction and Conclusion

Ben Shelton is one of the biggest stories at Wimbledon this year, as he reached the round of 16 after winning all the matches in five sets. The American is now ready to take on Jannik Sinner, who seems to play just enough to win. The world No. 1 lost a set in each of his first two matches, but as the second week started, he would pick up the level of his game. Given that and the fact that Shelton has spent four hours more on the court than Sinner, the Italian will easily win this one in straight sets.
