Stefanos Tsitsipas v Alex de Minaur Head to Head
Tsitsipas is 5-0 against de Minaur on the tour and 7-1 overall, including qualifying and lower tier tournaments. The Greek has won both his matches agains the Aussie this year, defeating de Minaur at the ATP Cup and in Barcelona.
Tsitsipas Rallies Past Fognini
World No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas rallied from a set down to knock out Italy’s Fabio Fognini in the third round of the Indian Wells Open to pick up his 53rd win of the season.
The Greek, who outclassed Spain’s Pedro Martinez 6-2, 6-4 to win a second round match for the first time at Indian Wells on Monday, needed over two hours to beat the gritty Italian in the third round on Tuesday.
Fognini dominated the first set with two breaks of serve and was up a break early in the second as well, before the 23-year-old Greek forged his way back into the match. 1-2 down in the second, he won four consecutive games to take charge of the set before serving it out and forcing the decider. He was the only one to get a break in the third set as he closed out the contest 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
In what’s been a terrific year so far, Tsitsiapas improved to 53-15 for the season. He is 30-9 on hard courts but four of his five final appearances this season have come on clay. The only time he reached a final on hard this year was in Acapulco where he finished runner-up to Alexander Zverev. Two of his seven career titles came this year, in Monte Carlos and Lyon.
The French Open runner-up has been so dominant this year that on Wednesday he will be looking to reach a 14th quarterfinal in 2021.
De Minaur Eases Past Garin
No. 22 seed Alex de Minaur continued his strong run in the tournament with another straight sets win on Tuesday.
The Australian, who had beaten compatriot Aleksandar Vukic 6-4, 7-5 in the second round on Sunday, needed an hour and 33 minutes to beat Chile’s Cristian Garin in the third round.
Broken once in each set, De Minaur broke his opponent’s serve twice in the first set and thrice in the second to complete a 6-4, 6-2 victory.
De Minaur had come into the tournament on the back of four consecutive defeats, and had won just once since winning the title in Eastbourne in June. With two back-to-back wins in Indian Wells, theWorld No. 27 seems to be back in form.
He had a great start to the season, which saw him capture the Antalya title, and enjoyed a decent run until Eastbourne, before hitting a slump.
Tsitsipas v De Minaur Prediction and Tip
Tsitsipas has dominated this rivalry and he is expected to pile more misery on the Aussie on Wednesday. Expect the Greek to win in straight sets.
