Tsitsipas Looking To End Season With Confidence

Stefanos Tsitsipas has reached a career high world number three in the ATP rankings and tasted consistent success ranging from a good run Down Under, the finals at the Mexican Open and a wonderful run on clay with titles at Monte Carlo, Lyon and a point away from the Barcelona title against Rafa Nadal.

The icing on the cake would have been a grand slam title to his name and it looked like he was there as he led Novak Djokovic by two sets to love in the French Open final only to be outdone in the next three sets.

The form and confidence took a dip thereafter with a straight sets loss to Frances Tiafoe in the Wimbledon opener and a none too impressive run at the Tokyo Olympics either. Although he made the semis at both Masters 1000 during the US Open series (Toronto & Cincinnati), it was a third round loss to Carlos Alcaraz that ended his US Open campaign.

The Greek looked in good touch to kick off his Indian Wells campaign but joined a number of top ranked players in crashing out in the middle of week two, with a quarter-final loss to eventual runner-up Nikoloz Basilashvili

Dimitrov Hitting Good Form at Indian Wells

The 30-year-old Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, who reached three consecutive quarterfinals at the start of the season, all on hard courts, including the Australian Open, found the going difficult on clay and grass.

Dimitrov had a 4-6 record through the US Open series, but has since turned it around with good runs in San Diego and Indian Wells in recent weeks.

The Bulgarian had a good run in San Diego, as he made the semi-finals where he was involved in the match of the tournament and narrowly lost out to eventual champion Casper Ruud, who is currently on a hot run of form, holding the most number of titles in 2021.

At the Indian Wells Masters 1000, it It was a good start to the tournament for Dimitrov with two convincing straight set wins against Daniel Altmaier and especially Reilly Opelka. Thereafter, the 2017 ATP Tour finals champion pulled off two spectacular comeback wins against Daniil Medvedev  and Hubert Hurkacz and booked his place in the final four.

Although Dimitrov lost the semi-final encounter to eventual Indian Wells champion Cameron Norrie, it was a good run for him and one that would have done wonders to his confidence. Buoyed by the strong run of the last couple weeks and his win against Tstisipas in Vienna last year, Dimitrov will be confident and looking forward to another good run here this week.
