Stefanos Tsitsipas v Damir Dzumhur Head to Head
The players have met four times and Dzumhur leads 3-1. Tsitsipas’ only win was on the outdoor hard courts in Canada in 2018.
In-Form Tsitsipas In Search Of Titles
Stefanos Tsitsipas has been on an impressive run in the young 2021 season thus far. Winning both his matches at the ATP Cup, he made it to the final eight at the Australian Open where he defeated world number two Rafael Nadal after being down two sets to love, before a straight sets defeat in the semi-finals at the hands of Daniil Medvedev.
He had a good run at the Rotterdam ATP 500 making the semi-finals before losing to the in-form red hot Andrey Rublev who went on to win his fourth consecutive ATP 500 tournament. With a 10-2 record for the year at the time, Tsitsipas was back in the top five of the ATP rankings, narrowly overtaking Roger Federer who was out of action for 14 months returning in Doha earlier this month.
Going for a record three-Pete at Marseille, Tsitsipas had an early exit losing in the quarters to Pierre-Hugues Herbert who went on to make the finals. Another good run at the Acupulco Open last week saw the young Greek make the finals and he looked in control against Alexander Zverev up 4-1 in the first sewt, but a turnaround of events saw the German win in two tight sets.
Tsitsipas has had a good season already, but knows he needs to start winning titles and hopes Miami is the place where the trend changes, especially with the Big Three and Dominic Thiem absent.
Inspiring Anderson Win For Dzumhur
Once aspiring to be a top-20 player in the world, Dzumhur has fallen to outside the top 100 in the rankings and his lack of results last season and this season thus far have only added to those issues.
In the seven ATP competitions he played in 2020, Dzumhur did not win a main draw match. The couple of notable performances came at the Bendigo Challenger where he reached the quarterfinal and Davis Cup where he won both his singles matches. Not surprisingly, those wins came against very low-ranked opponents.
At his best, Dzumhur has recorded wins over Rafael Nadal and Tomas Berdych in 2016, and Stan Wawrinka and Alexander Zverev in 2017.
2021 did not look too good for him either with a first round loss at the Aussie Open, and failing to qualify for Montpellier or Acupulco. An opening round match here against Kevin Anderson as a lucky loser changed the course of events as he prevailed in two very tight sets and the win must have done his confidence a world of good as he hopes to resurrect his career and form.
Tsitsipas v Dzumhur Prediction and Tip
Both players are very different to the ones who have met four times before, with Tsitsipas trailing 1-3. The Greek has been in good touch and Dzumhur has struggled. Expect a convincing win for Tsitsipas here.
Tip: Tsitsipas to win in straight sets: 2/7 (bet365)
