Stefanos Tsitsipas v Nick Kyrgios Head to Head
The two players have never met on the ATP tour and this will be their first ever meeting. Both players have been in fine form and this could well be the match of the tournament.
Tsitsipas In DC Semis Again
21 year old Stefanos Tsitsipas is in the Citi Open semi-final for a second consecutive year and will look to better that this time around.
The Greek has has had straight set wins thus far, against American Tommy Paul, Australian Jordan Thompson and Frenchman Benoit Paire. He has had his difficult moments in all his matches, but has come out on top each time.
Tsitsipas had been in sensational form for the first half of the year, prior to a disappointing grass court swing which included a first round loss at Wimbledon.
The Greek star remains well on course for a first appearance at the year-end ATP Tour finals, exactly a year after he won the ATP Under 21 finals in Milan.
With a strong serve and powerful groundstrokes on either wing, the top seed at the Citi Open has announced his return to the US hard courts this week and looks ready to face the likes of Nick Kyrgios and Daniil Medvedev this weekend.
Looking Like Another ‘Kyrgios’ Week
Australian Nick Kyrgios, hailed by some as being the most naturally gifted tennis player, after Roger Federer is probably the only tennis player that has made news for reasons as varied as he has. For a while now, he has been in the news for on-court brilliance, on –court lack of discipline and off-court comments.
The Aussie has as much talent as he does unpredictable temperament, and going into every match, no one (including Kyrgios) knows which version of Kyrgios will show up on the given day.
Similar to the ATP 500 at Acapulco earlier this year, where he had a brilliant week, Kyrgios has looked very strong this week. He is yet to drop a set and been very focussed, exhibiting some moments of the magic talent that he possesses. The Aussie has had his ‘Kyrgios moments’, but otherwise entertained all with spectacular shot making.
Kyrgios incidentally paired up with Tsitsipas for the first time this week to play doubles and has alluded to more of such in the foreseeable future.
Stefanos Tsitsipas v Nick Kyrgios Predictions & Tips
This is definitely the match to watch this week, and both players bring a lot of charisma, character, entertainment and sensational tennis with them to the court.
Both have looked very strong this week, and can be expected to be confident ahead of the clash. It will be down to Tsitsipas’ all court coverage and groundstrokes versus the brilliance of Nick Kyrgios.
A very exciting match ahead between two much talked about personalities is what makes for our Saturday night special. It is difficult to pick a favorite and will be down to who plays the big points better, with a very slight edge to Kyrgios to win a three-set belter.
Tip: Three sets in the match: 6/4 (888Sport)
