Tsitsipas Continues Good Clay Form

After a good start to the season making the semi-finals at the Aussie Open, Rotterdam and Acupulco, Stefanos Tsitsipas lost his way a little during the Sunshine Masters.

However, the Greek did well to pull back on clay winning the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 for a second year in a row and then despite losing out to Carlos Alcaraz in Barcelona, did well to make the semis at Madrid last week on the wrong side of a decider against German Alexander Zverev.

It has not been the easiest of times for Tsitsipas this week, being down match point to Grigor Dimitrov in the second round before coming through in a final set tiebreak against someone he seems to be playing weekly this season.

A first set less to Karen Khachanov ensued but it was vintage Tsitsipas winning a three-setter thereafter.

The Greek looked back at his best in his quarter-final against home favorite Jannik Sinner.  A tight first set saw back and forth breaks of serve with the crowd getting behind Sinner, but Tsitsipas upped the ante when needed in the tiebreak and closed the set 7-5 in the breaker.

It was all Tsitsipas in the second set with two breaks of serve that ensured another semi-final spot and another clash with Zverev.

Consistent On Clay, Zverev Seeks a Title

World number three Alexander Zverev ended 2021 with an impressive win at the ATP Tour Finals defeating the top two players in the world Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev.

It has not been the best start to 2022 for the German, losing early at the Australian Open and a string of poor results ranging from Montpellier to Acupulco to the Sunshine Masters.

A better showing followed to kick off the clay season in Monte Carlo with a semi-final loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas but then came the opening round loss at home in Munich to Danish teenager Holger Rune.

Defending champion last year in Madrid, it was not the best of starts to the week for Zverev being pushed to three sets by veteran Maric Cilic, but since then it was good going for the German defeating Lorenzo Musetti,  Felix Auger- Aliassime and Stefanos Tsitsipas for a spot in the final to defend his title.

In a very lopsided final it was a loss to rising Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz with Zverev only winning four games in the match.

Looking to get ready for Roland Garros, Zverev arrived in Rome hoping for a good confidence boosting run ahead of the second major of the year.

The 2017 Rome champion has looked good this week with three straight set wins against Sebastian Baez, Alex de Minaur and Cristian Garin and will hope to continue the run this weekend carrying the form forward to Roland Garros.

Tsitsipas v Zverev  Prediction and Tip

This is becoming a weekly tradition on the tour as the players have met at the semi-finals of each of the clay Masters 1000s this year.

Another hard fought encounter awaits but the Monte Carlo winner has looked better and more steady, with none of the Madrid altitude assisting the Zverev serve here in Rome.

Tsitsipas to win in a decider and aim for a second clay Masters 1000 title this season.
