Stefanos Tsitsipas is a 21-year-old Greek, ranked 7th ATP.
And Tsitsipas is a great talent, a very young athlete who is already in the top 10 ATP, being considered in the elite of the sport. It is still very inconsistent but this is understandable, Stefanos being just at the beginning of the road in the performance sport.
In 2019 he has semifinals at the Australian Open, quarterfinals at Sofia, title at Marseille, final at Dubai, title at Estoril, final at Madrid, semifinals at Rome, quarterfinals at Queen’s, semifinals at Washington and finals at Beijing last week. .

Tennis Prediction of the Day Novak Djokovic vs Stefanos Tsitsipas
The Serbian killer leaves as a big favorite in this match, his consistency and consistency in the game is an amazing one at the moment, winning the last 14 sets, and Stefanos Tsitsipas is prone to unforced errors, as is John Isner and Denis Shapovalov. So I expect Novak Djokovic to dominate this match too and get the qualification in the Asian Cup in Shanghai.
Novak Djokovic has a very good rhythm at the moment, showing few weaknesses and having 7 consecutive victories in which he did not lose the set. Here he clearly dominated both Shapovalov and Isner, serving excellently and offering one break ball all tournament. Stefanos Tsitsipas is obviously talented, but here he had great difficulties in both parties. Aliassime defeated only after 2 tie-breaks in a very hot match and yesterday he needed tie-break in the decisive set with Hurkacz, in a game where he was dominated and he could lose 0-2.
Bet Tips: N. Djokovic 2-0
