Stefanos Tsitsipas v Hugo Dellien Head to Head
This is the first ever match between these players and certainly not the last one with them being pretty young and have years on the ATP tour in front of them. Tsitsipas is turning 21 in August and Dellien 26 in June, and despite the contrast in their age, they are still younsters.
They both play best on clay and Tsitsipas has a 74% win rate on this surface from 139 matches and Dellien 68% from 511. That is why we should see numerous matches between these guys in the future, especially in the final stages of clay court tournaments.
Tsitsipas Has Been Red Hot On Clay This Year
First 18 matches on clay brought Tsitsipas 14 wins and a title in Estoril. This is just a single win less than he had in the entire previous season and is on track to have 20 wins on clay before the first half of the season ends.
The amazing skill set he has is perfect for this surface, especially his ability to play the defense and offense equally good and his wins over Nadal, Djokovic and Zverev on this surface prove that.
He had an easy job in the opening round here in Paris as he managed to beat Marterer 6-2, 6-2 and 7-6 in only an hour and 50 minutes.
Dellien Is Playing In A Grand Slam Main Draw For The First Time
The 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 victory for Dellien against Prajnesh Gunneswaran here in the opening round was a great way for him to present himself on a Grand Slam stage. He is undoubtedly one of the most complete players on this surface at the moment and we should see him in the top 50 of the rankings soon, based just of his clay court results in 2019.
He has managed to beat Seppi and Tipsarevic in Geneva last week, also managed to snatch a set from Alex Zverev who later won the tournament. That was a nice way for him to prepare for the French Open and although I don’t see him doing much against Tsitsipas here, all of this will be a great confidence boost for him ahead of the second part of the season.
Stefanos Tsitsipas v Hugo Dellien Predictions & Tips
Expect that the great form and higher skill level of Tsitsipas will be the deciding factors here. He is just too good for Dellien and he should win this match in straight sets.
