Stefanos Tsitsipas v David Goffin Head to Head
These two players have met on five occasions with the Greek player leading the series 3-2. The have played only once on clay (Monte Carlo 2018) and David Goffin was a 7-6 7-5 winner.
Tsitsipas Looking To Reach His 3rd Final of 2019
Stefanos Tsitsipas has lived up to the billing of title favorite in Estoril this week. The Greek NextGen star broke Portuguese hearts when he snatched victory in straights sets over home favorite Joao Domingues in an entertaining quarterfinal match.
Tsitsipas trailed 3-5 in the first set of that match but still managed to steal the set and the match to progress to the last four in Estoril for the second consecutive year. He will hope to do better this time after falling to eventual champion Joao Sousa in semifinals last year.
The top seed has reached finals in Marseille (won the title) and Dubai (lost to Federer) in what has been a very special start to the year. A third final in 2019 will put Tsitsipas on 22 match wins and only three behind the ATP leader Daniil Medvedev.
Goffin, The ‘Wounded Lion’ Who Still Has Plenty To Bite
David Goffin needed over two and half hours to dispatch the spirited Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 4-6 7-6 6-2 to book his spot in the his second semifinal of 2019. The Belgian will be looking to appear in final for the first time since reaching the championship match at 2017 Nitto ATP Finals when he stunned Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, before losing to Grigor Dimitrov.
The 28-year-old is yet to hit the dizzying heights he set in 2017 – and following an injury-stricken 2018 season – he has now lost his spot inside the Top 20. Goffin is still defiant he can return to being among the best eight players in the world once, but just a like a young giraffe tentatively learning to take its first steps, he will need a lot of patience.
Tsitsipas v Goffin Predictions & Tips
Goffin is slightly overpriced here and it is baffling to say the least. He is obviously weaker than he was during 2017 season but he still retains excellent footwork and counter-punching abilities on the court. Both players have not looked great this week. I would lean with the Belgian given his pedigree on the clay.
Tip: Goffin to win: 28/17 (888Sport)
