Stefanos Tsitsipas wins a good fight against Italian Gianluca Mager to move into the 2nd round. Stefanos won the tie 7-6(6), 6-4 in 1 hour and 41 minutes. Tsitsipas has recently seen a dip in his form and will be aiming for a good run in Austria in order to prepare for the upcoming 2021 ATP Finals for which he has already qualified.

Frances Tiafoe had a rather straight-forward win defeating Dusan Lajovic 6-4, 6-4 in 1 hour and 22 minutes. Frances had to enter the main-draw from the qualifying stages and won both his ties in 3-setters. Prior to his visit to Vienna, he played at the 2021 European Open in Antwerp where he lost to Andy Murray in the longest 3-set match of the season.

Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Frances Tiafoe: Prediction

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Frances will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 35-33 and is 3-1 on the surface this season while being 35-24 across all surfaces this season. Tsitsipas will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 59-31 and has a 6-2 surface season record. He is 55-16 for the season across all surfaces.

Looking at these numbers, their past performances and recent form coming into the match, Stefanos Tsitsipas looks the favourite but Frances certainly has the potential to defeat the top-seed. But the Greek’s superior form among the two might just take him in the next round.

Prediction: Stefanos Tsitsipas to win in 3-sets.
