In the 1/16 finals of the Shanghai championship on hard court, Italy's Jannik Sinner is set to face off against Sebastian Baez from Argentina. I'm backing Sinner with a -5 game handicap.
The 22-year-old Jannik Sinner, currently ranked 4th in the world, has claimed his first victory at Shanghai against Hurkacz with a score of 7:6 (9:7), 6:2.

In the 's-Hertogenbosch tournament, he bested Bublik, but lost to Ruusuvuori, and at the French Open he convincingly beat Muller, but then lost to Altmaier. In the current season, Sinner continues to demonstrate impressive results on hard courts, reaching finals in Rotterdam and Miami as well as semi-finals in Indian Wells and Monte Carlo. He also claimed victory on indoor hard in Montpellier at the beginning of the season.
The 22-year-old Sebastian Baez, currently ranked 29th in the world, claimed his first victory at Shanghai over Sousa with a score of 6:2, 6:4. Prior to this, in Astana, the tennis player suffered a loss in the opening match against Rodionov with a score of 2:6, 4:6, and at Davis Cup he overcame Baez 7:6 (8:6), 5:7, 6:3. At the US Open, Baez made it past Čilić with a score of 7:5, 7:5, 6:1 and Meligeni Rodrigues Alves, with a score of 6:7 (7:9), 6:4, 6:4, 0:0, the match was abandoned, but later he lost to Medvedev 2:6, 2:6, 6:7 (6:8).
Earlier in Winston-Salem and Kitzbühel, Sebastian claimed the titles. During these tournaments, he overcame Medjedovic, Carballés Baena, Molčan, Etcheverry, Tim, Galan, Vukić, Djere, Čilić and Lehecka. These successes came after four consecutive losses. In Hamburg he succumbed to Ruud with a score of 3:6, 6:1, 3:6, in Båstad - to Coria 4:6, 6:4, 6:7 (5:7), and at Wimbledon - to Barrios with a score of 6:7 (7:9), 6:3, 3:6, 6:7 (2:7). Sebastian also participated in tournaments in Eastbourne and French Open but lost to Paul and Monfils, respectively.

An important achievement was winning the Cordoba tournament, on clay, where he beat Darderi, Barrios and Dellien, and ultimately bested Coria in the final.
