Stefanos Tsitsipas v Ilya Ivashka Head to Head
Tsitsipas leads the H2H record 2-0, playing both times in 2022. They first played in Rotterdam (Indoor hard) where Tsitsipas won in straight sets, and recently played in Barcelona (Clay) where Tsitsipas won in three sets.
Tsitsipas Unpredictable on Grass
This will be the third grass tournament Stefanos Tsitsipas will play prior to the Wimbledon Championships beginning next week. He is currently 2-2 on grass this year, losing his second matches in both Stuttgart and Halle.
Tsitsipas defeated rising star Dominic Stricker 6-3, 6-4 in the second round in Stuttgart after receiving a bye. He went on to lose the quarterfinal match against former Wimbledon champion, Andy Murray.
In Halle, he beat Frenchman Benjamin Bonzi in three sets after completely losing focus in the second set. The Greek was not able to back up his round one win and lost 7-5, 2-6, 2-4 to Nick Kyrgios in the second round.
Tsitsipas has a below par record on grass in his career. His slice is not his best tool and with the ball keeping low at times, his weaker side at the backhand becomes erratic.
Against Kyrgios, his first serve percentage dropped after winning the first set and was not able to win free points on serve. It is difficult to forecast the level he will show in Mallorca, but it is important to note he already has 36 wins to his name on tour this calendar year.
Tsitsipas received a bye in the first round and will directly play in the second round.
Underdog Ivashka is the In Form Player
Ivashka has been playing at a very good level this grass season but unfortunately both his losses on grass have come against world number 1, Daniil Medvedev.
The Belarussian is 4-2 on grass this season. He won against Mackenzie McDonald and Emil Ruusuvuori in the Hertogenbosch Open to reach the quarterfinal, which he lost 6-7(8), 4-6 to Medvedev. The first set was really close with multiple breaks of serve and a very close tie break.
Ivashka beat Jan-Lennard Struff in the first round in Halle and then lost his second round match to Medvedev again, 6-7(4), 3-6. He had break points in the first set but was not able to convert.
Ivashka was drawn against Ruusuvuori again in the first round in Mallorca. He came through 6-4, 6-1 and looked in extremely good shape.
Tsitsipas v Ivashka Prediction and Tip
This match is much closer than it appears on paper. Tsitsipas is not at his very best at this moment while Ivashka is playing well and was also able to take Tsitsipas to three sets the last time they met. This could be a very clumsy match for the Greek and we should see the over games market crossed.
