Stefanos Tsitsipas v Andrey Rublev Head to Head

This will be the eighth match between the two in what has been a well contested head-to-head. The players met twice this year splitting wins, with Rublev winning in Rotterdam and Tsitsipas in Monte Carlo. They also met in the group stages of the Tour Finals in London last year, with Tsitsipas winning a nail-biting final set tiebreak.

Tsitsipas Fitness Clouds Strong Season

2019 ATP Tour Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas  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 1000s during the US Open series (Toronto & Cincinnati), it was a third round loss to Carlos Alcaraz that ended his US Open campaign.

Losses at Indian Wells and Vienna when he was in control of the match were disappointing and a clear indication that it may well have been a long enough season for the Greek already, who is starting to think of the off-season and 2022.

A recurring elbow issue saw Tsitsipas pull out of his match at the Paris Masters and while his physical condition is unknown, he has alluded to feeling fine in practice and giving his best shot one last time this calendar year on the court this week.

Rublev Loses Steam After Strong First Half

Currently ranked World No. 5, which is his best singles ranking yet, Andrey Rublev has had a promising season overall.

Even though he won only one singles title this season (Rotterdam ATP 500), he remained a top performer through the season. Since winning the Rotterdam Open in March, the 23-year-old Russian reached the final at the Monte-Carlo Masters, Halle Open, and Cincinnati Masters as well as competed in a number of tour level semi-finals.

A quarter-final loss to Medvedev at the Aussie Open, an opening day loss at the French and missing out on the quarter-finals at both Wimbledon and US Open with five set losses that slipped out of his hand sums up a Grand Slam season where the Russian would surely have hoped for more.

Losses across the hard court and indoor season since the US Open ranging from San Diego to  Indian Wells to both his home tournaments (St. Petersburg and Moscow) as well as the Paris Masters was a clear sign of how fatigue has caught up with Rublev and a well earned break is in store soon.

The young Russian will be hoping for a good run this week in Turin where he can better his Tour Finals debut in London last year and hopefully get out of the group stages this time around.

Tsitsipas v Rublev Prediction and Tip

It is tricky to pick a winner here as Tsitsipas’s elbow situation is largely unknown.  Expect a good contest between these two as always. Neither has been in the best of form lately and much of it is alluded to fatigue after what has been a long and good season for both.

A battle on the cards lies ahead with Rublev prevailing in a decider.
