Carlos Alcaraz will meet Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Quarter-Finals of the 2023 Indian Wells Masters. The match will be played on Thursday March 16th, 2023.

Carlos Alcaraz is the second ranked player in the world and is the top seed here at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters. The dynamic young Spaniard is only a few wins away from regaining the top spot in the rankings, which he will achieve by lifting the trophy here. One thing is for sure, he will be well-rested headed into this matchup against Felix Auger-Aliassime as he only completed one set in the previous round with Jack Draper retiring when down early in the second set. Alcaraz has to be considered the favorite here, but FAA has come on leaps and bounds in recent times and will pose a serious challenge.

Felix Auger-Aliassime is the eighth seed here at the 2023 Indian Wells Masters and is ranked 10th on the ATP Tour. While Carlos Alcaraz will be well-rested, FAA will be anything but as he staged an incredible comeback against Tommy Paul, winning after saving 6 match points. He knows that he cannot afford that against the Spaniard, as he is sure to be way more clinical than Paul. FAA can hang with Alcaraz shot for shot and match him for power, but the mental game is where he falls short at times.

This should be a cracker of a match between two of the most exciting young talents in world tennis. Both men are dynamic shot makers and will give it their all, but it is hard to see Alcaraz losing this one. He can taste the top ranking and has shown that his mental prowess is unmatched. FAA will run him close and can snatch a set, but back the Spaniard to advance here and to come within two wins of the summit.
