Stefanos Tsitsipas v Mikael Ymer Head to Head
There have been three previous matches played between these two players and Tsitsipas has won every single time. The last time they faced off was at the Australian Open earlier this year at which Tsitsipas steamrolled Ymer in straight sets.
They have never faced off on clay before this.
Tsitsipas Stretched by Kolar
Tsitsipas might have been a Monte-Carlo Masters winner this season and followed it up with a runner-up trophy in Rome but his start to this year’s French Open has been anything but spectacular.
In the first round Tsitsipas required to come back from two sets down against Lorenzo Musetti to edge out his Italian opponent in five. And this was followed by a very gritty battle against the virtually unknown Zdenek Kolar, which last four sets of which three went into tie-breakers.
The match lasted over four hours and in the end it was a matter of inches that separated the two players. Where Tsitsipas struggled was with his first serve – he got just 58% of those in.
While he won 56% of the second serve points, he suffered a couple of breaks of serves. In fact, Kolar had a chance to win the second set where he was a break ahead and later had a set-point in the tie-breaker only to muff up his chances.
Can Tsitsipas finally get himself a comfortable victory?
Ymer Stuns Evans in Round Two
Daniel Evans doesn’t quite enjoy playing on clay but had gone into his second round match against Mikael Ymer as a 1/2 favourite to clinch it. Three hours and 23 minutes later, it was Ymer who had the last laugh as he carved his place in the third round with a four-set win.
Ymer won 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to set up his fourth meeting with Tsitsipas and will look to do better on clay against the Greek player than he has in each of his previous three occasions.
The Swede raced off to a 5-1 lead in the first set, but then lost the initiative in the second to leave the scores tied. Evans got himself an early break of serve in the third but once Ymer had wiped that off, there was no looking back as he broke the Brit two more times to take the lead.
Evans had another chance in the fourth set when he went 3-1 up but for the second time in a row Ymer raced to win the next five games and with it, the match, to stroll into round three.
Tsitsipas v Ymer Prediction and Tip
Tsitsipas will be desperate for a straightforward contest and while Ymer has shown what he is capable of, he has been prone to a poor run of form in recent times too. Expecting Tsitsipas to win in three.
