Grigor Dimitrov v Jannik Sinner: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Jannik Sinner has been in red-hot form in 2024 and can add the Miami Open title to his list of accolades when he takes on Grigor Dimitrov in Sunday's final in Florida.

Having won his maiden Grand Slam title earlier this year, Sinner set up another significant final in Miami with a 6-1 6-2 thrashing of defending champion Daniil Medvedev in the semi-finals.

Dimitrov's semi-final was more hard-fought but he nonetheless impressed with a 6-4 7-6 6-4 win over fourth seed Alexander Zverev.

This will be the fourth time these two players have clashed, with Sinner leading the head-to-head 2-1 after his triumph over Dimitrov at the China Open last year.

An intriguing encounter should nonetheless be on the cards as the US hard-court season reaches its conclusion.

Jannik Sinner to win 2-1 - 5/2

Already 2024 is shaping up as a year to remember for Sinner.

The Italian laid down a marker in his first event of the year, winning the Australian Open, his first Grand Slam title, having not dropped a set until the semi-finals.

That was followed with another title win at the ATP Rotterdam before he reached the semi-finals of the Indian Wells Masters, where he was dumped out by eventual winner Carlos Alcaraz.

That was Sinner's only defeat of the season with the Italian chalking up 21 wins from 22 matches this year and he has again looked unstoppable at the Miami Open.

Sinner dropped only one set in his first four matches in Florida against Andrea Vavassori, Tallon Griekspoor, Christopher O'Connell and Tomas Machac, but it was in the semi-finals that he really made an impact.

Up against defending champion Medvedev, Sinner barely broke a sweat, reeling off a 6-1 6-2 win in only 69 minutes.

It was a ruthless display from Sinner but it is fair to say Medvedev did not help himself, having recorded 22 unforced errors in the match and a couple of big errors in the second set prompted jeers from the crowd.

Sinner should therefore not be too complacent and his final against 11th seed Dimitrov is likely to be a tougher assignment.

Dimitrov's age coupled with the fact he spent more time on court in the semi-finals suggests Sinner should get over the line and claim the title.

But the Bulgarian has won 19 of his 23 matches in 2024, having already lifted the Brisbane International before finishing as runner-up at the Open 13 in Marseille.

There has been a new lease of life to the 32-year-old in the last six months or so and he should make this competitive.

Set to move back into the world's top 10 for the first time in six years, Dimitrov can win a set, but Sinner is a good bet to prevail 2-1 overall.

Jannik Sinner to win and over 21.5 games - 6/5

Thinking along the same lines as the first selection, punters should consider backing Sinner to win and over 21.5 games.

The way Sinner took down Medvedev cannot be ignored and he is the obvious pick to win the match.

But he will be made to work for it by Dimitrov, who could push the Italian close in each set.

Three of Dimitrov's five matches at this year's Miami Open have gone to three sets and he has had four sets go to tiebreakers.

One of those tiebreakers came in the semi-final against Zverev with the match featuring a total of 33 games.

This match may not be quite as evenly poised but Dimitrov can still ensure the game count hits 22 in Florida.
