Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniil Medvedev: Prediction
Stefanos Tsitsipas produced some remarkable level tennis during his quarterfinal victory over Jannik Sinner. Tsitsipas has a tendency of going to strike the ball early, and utilize his strong forehands. On the other hand, Medvedev tries to control the rally, and tries to make the most of his backhands, pushing his opponents deep into the baseline. One crucial aspect of the match will be Stefanos Tsitsipas’ serve. Although, he served very well against the Italian, Daniil Medvedev will look to exploit his vulnerable second serve.
Match Prediction: Medvedev wins in five sets.
