Sixth seed Alexander Zverev will take on fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-final clash of French Open 2021 on Friday. Zverev has been in incredible form lately. He started off against Oscar Otte in a very tight first-round clash. Otte stretched him to five sets. However, despite dropping the first two sets, Zverev emerged victorious by 3-6, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-0.

Post that, Zverev hasn’t dropped a single set in the tournament. He absolutely thrashed Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the quarter-final encounter and won the contest in straight sets by 6-4, 6-1, 6-1. However, Zverev now has a tough ask in the name of Stefanos Tsitsipas ahead of him.

On the other hand, Stefanos Tsitsipas is having the best season of his career. He has progressed into the semis without being stretched into the fifth set even once in the French Open 2021. Tsitsipas dropped just a solitary set in the tournament against John Isner in the third-round clash.

Since then, he has clearly dominated the proceedings in every contest. Tsitsipas went past second-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the quarter-finals in a one-sided affair. Medvedev was clearly caught off-guard by the strength and agility of Tsitsipas. The Greek tennis star won the contest in straight sets by 6-3, 7-6, 7-5.

Tsitsipas has consistently played well throughout the French Open 2021. His serves have been tough to tackle and his defensive technique has blocked even the best of attacks by the opponents. Both, Tsitsipas and Zverev are very evenly matched nad it is going to be a blockbuster encounter.

Tsitsipas and Zverev have faced each other 7 times in the past and Tsitsipas has emerged victoriously 5 times. The head-to-head record suggests that the Greek tennis star has an overwhelming advantage over Zverev. However, looking at the way both of them have played thus far, it would be fair to say that it is going to be a nail-biting clash.
