Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Nicolas Jarry: Preview
Stefanos Tsitsipas last competed at the 2023 US Open, where he was defeated in the second round by Dominic Stricker in five sets. After his final run at the 2023 Australian Open earlier this year, the Greek has struggled to make it count on the big stages. The two time Grand Slam finalist will look to end the season on a high, with the Shanghai Masters, Paris Masters and Nitto ATP Finals all to follow.
Nicolas Jarry reached the third round of the US Open, where he lost to Alex de Minaur in straight sets. The Chilean has had a decent year on tour, as he has claimed some big wins this season. He has faced Tsitsipas on four occasions in the past, with the head to head reading 2-2. Their last encounter came at the Los Cabos encounter, where the Greek prevailed as the winner.
The match is nicely poised, as it could swing either way. Stefanos Tsitsipas has been way too inconsistent this season, whereas Nicolas Jarry is capable of producing upsets from time to time.
The Chilean has a huge serve up his sleeve, which becomes uncomfortable to deal with for his opponents on several occasions. However, the fourth seed has a good overall game on this surface, and he should come out on top in a tight three set encounter.
Prediction: Stefanos Tsitsipas to win in three sets
