Stefanos Tsitsipas v Mikael Ymer Head to Head
The players have never met on the tour before.
Tsitsipas Returns From Elbow Surgery
2021 was a season of highs and lows for young Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The year saw him make the semi-finals at the Australian Open, win his first ever Masters 1000 at Monte Carlo as well as have a good run on the clay.
Tsitsipas was up two sets to love in the final of the French Open against Novak Djokovic, before losing the next three sets that marked a slide in the season for the Greek.
The rest of the season was a mix of early losses, disappointing performances, off-court controversies (bathroom break related at the US Open and onwards) and an elbow surgery at the end of the season resulting in an early withdrawal from the ATP Tour Finals in Turin.
It was not the best of returns to the tour post surgery at the start of the ’22 season at the ATP Cup for Tsitsipas, who lost a three-setter to Argentine Diego Schwartzman, had a walkover against Nikoloz Basilashvili and did not play against Hubert Hurkacz
The Australian Open first week will be a good test of Tsitsipas’ recovery from injury as well as current form
Ymer Hoping To Better AO 2021 Meeting
23-year-old Swede Mikael Ymer had an encouraging year on the tour in 2021.
After back-to-back quarterfinals last July in Gstaad and Kitzbuhel, he made his mark at Winston-Salem.
Ymer reached his first ATP final defeating the likes of Albert Ramos Vinolas, Frances Tiafoe and Carlos Alcaraz en route. The World No. 94 became the first ATP finalist from Sweden in more than a decade.
2022 was off to a fair start for Ymer who made the quarter-finals at the Adelaide ATP 250 before losing out to in-form Aussie returning to the tour Thanasi Kokkinakis.
The young Swede kicks off his Aussie Open campaign against Stefanos Tsitsipas who defeated him convincingly in straight sets here last year, in the third round.
Tsitsipas v Ymer Prediction and Tip
This match makes for a repeat of the third round encounter at the 2021 Aussie Open. While Ymer will hope to and should better that outing, a healthy Tsitsipas is likely prevail here in a well-fought contest.
Expect the Greek to win a four-setter.
