Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Grigor Dimitrov: Head-to-Head

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Greek World No.3, Stefanos Tsitsipas has been in amazing form this season. After a memorable outing at French Open, where he reached the final, Tsitsipas had a decent North American swing. He made it to the semifinals at Toronto and Cincinnati before bowing out of the third round at Flushing Meadows. At Indian Wells, he reached the quarterfinals where he lost to Nikoloz Basilashvili.

Former World No.3 Grigor Dimitrov was in terrible form all season but has turned things around in the last 2 tournaments he’s played. He reached the semifinals of the San Diego Open where he lost to eventual champion Casper Ruud. He then followed it up with a memorable outing at Indian Wells- his best so far in the season. He made it to the semifinals and got the better of the likes of Reilly Opelka, Hubert Hurkacz and US Open champion Daniil Medvedev.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

The one player Tsitsipas would’ve not wanted to face in the opening round is Dimitrov. The Bulgarian showcased his old form at Indian Wells and the indoor hardcourts will suit his game. The Greek himself is in amazing form but will have a huge challenge ahead of him. Though the fast courts of Vienna don’t bode well with Tsitsipas’ game, he can make good use of his slices to open up the court. The match is expected to go down the distance with Tsitsipas winning moving into the Round of 16.

Prediction: Tsitsipas to win in three sets.
