Onorato grew up playing competitive tennis in Caracas, Venezuela. After coming to the United States, he trained with famed coach Nick Bollettieri at IMG Academy in Florida and faced players like Robert Farah, now one of the world's top-ranked doubles players. Onorato, who holds dual degrees in finance and economics from the University of Miami, does extensive research before placing any tennis bets. He studies current form, a player's tendencies on a particular surface, weather conditions and many other relevant factors. That systematic approach helped Onorato go 96-67-7 -- up 60.42 units -- in 2022.

Now, Onorato has locked in on the 2023 French Open men's semifinal matchup featuring Djokovic vs. Alcaraz and revealed his best bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see them.

Top Djokovic vs. Alcaraz predictions

The matchup between Djokovic and Alcaraz has everything any observer could want on the Roland Garros clay. Djokovic is making his 45th career appearance in a Grand Slam semifinal and looking for his 23rd Grand Slam title. He breezed by Juan Pablo Varillas in straight sets in the quarterfinal, facing only three break points, and Djokovic defeated Karen Khachanov in four sets on Tuesday to reach this point. He has only dropped one set in the tournament, losing the opener to Khachanov before winning three straight, and Djokovic's form is impressive alongside his immeasurable experience and pedigree. 

Alcaraz is the No. 1 player in the world and No. 1 seed coming off a 2022 U.S. Open win. He is the youngest semifinalist at Roland Garros since 2007, and has appeared virtually unbeatable in the tournament. He is 25-2 on clay this season after thrashing No. 5 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinal, and Alcaraz is also 1-0 all-time against Djokovic. That win came on the clay surface at the 2022 Madrid Masters, and Alcaraz won't be intimidated by the all-time great. See who to pick here.
