Tsitsipas would be hoping to regain his form to make a deep run in the US Open, where his best performance had been to reach the third round. He last played at the Cincinnati Masters, where he could not get past the round of 16. He lost to Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets with the score line of 3-6, 4-6. The World No. 7 would have to improve on his backhand if he wants to triumph in this encounter.

On the other hand, Raonic last played at the Canadian Open where he made it to the round of 16. This was a commendable effort from the 2016 Wimbledon finalist, as he had beaten American Frances Tiafoe on the route to the third round. The Canadian has a really great serve and it may prove to be lethal in the match against the 2023 Australian Open finalist.
