Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev: Preview
Stefanos Tsitsipas wants to win his first clay trophy before he goes on to the French Open. This would be a ‘ALL IN” semi-final since he is a clay specialist and hasn’t had favourable results this season. Tsitsipas was defeated by Taylor Fritz in the Monte Carlo Masters quarter-final. The Barcelona Open was his biggest win of the year. He reached the finals but lost to the World No. 2 Carlos Alcaraz.
Tsitsipas also failed to reach the final of the Madrid Open. In the quarterfinal, he lost in 3 sets to the lucky loser Jan Lennard Struff of the Madrid Open. Tsitsipas defeated two Italian stars in the tournament. He reached the quarter-finals by defeating Lorenzo Sonego as well as Lorenzo Musetti in the same match.
Daniil Medidev who had a successful season on the hard court, moved onto the clay court in doubt. He has performed better than most expected. He lost in the Monte Carlo Masters Quarter-Final to Holger Rane. He lost the Madrid Open to Aslan Karatev. In the Italian Open, he defeated his greatest rival Alexander Zverev already in the 16th round. Medvedev is more confident than ever as he moves on to the French Open next week after winning each round of the Italian Open.
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev: Prediction
The first meeting between the two players will take place in 2023, but it is the 11th head to head overall. Daniil Medidev is the winner of 7 out of 11 matches in their head-tohead. Both players have faced each other twice on clay and won one match each. The Semi-Final is therefore very well balanced as Daniil Medvedev excels above his expectations in clay and Stefanos Tsitsipas has a specialization on clay surface.
Prediction Daniil Medidev to win 3 sets
