Since the beginning of 2023, Marco Cecchinato has gone 9/9, with six of those nine victories coming in his last two competitions, the Estoril and Madrid Masters. He advanced to the semifinals at Estoril, and after entering as a qualifier at Madrid Masters, he advanced to the second round. The former French Open semifinalist, who has struggled with consistent fitness issues lately, is in desperate need of these recent encouraging results. As a matter of fact, he has already had to retire twice this year, once at the Australian Open and once at Cordoba.

Mackenzie McDonald has had a challenging clay court season thus far, losing in the first round three times in a row at the Monte Carlo Masters, Barcelona Masters, and Madrid Masters competitions. He took part in a clay Challenger event in Cagliari last week in an effort to strengthen his form, but regrettably he was unable to change his luck and lost in the first round once more. All the good that the Americans had accomplished on hard surfaces in the early months of 2023 has been undone by the clay court season. McDonald was playing with assurance before arriving in Europe for the clay swing; he had advanced to the quarterfinals (or further) in Delray Beach and Acapulco and even dominated Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open.

Head to head

1-0 is Mackenzie McDonald’s lead. Mackenzie McDonald would probably be the clear favourite if the contest took place on a surface other than clay. Marco Cecchinato’s performance on the day will have a significant impact on the result of their upcoming match due to his lack of experience and poor clay court results.
