ATP Madrid, Final Preview


Top seed Novak Djokovic is on course to win the Madrid Open title and standing in his way is an up and coming star from Greece.

Novak Djokovic v Stefanos Tsitsipas

Top seed Novak Djokovic was pushed hard in his semi-final eventually seeing off 5th seed Thiem 7-6 & 7-6. He had a walkover in his quarter-final with 9th seed Cilic and won both his round of 16 and round of 32 matches in straight sets.

8th seed Tsitsipas has now knocked 2 of the top 3 seeds out having beaten 3rd seed Zverev in 3 sets in the last 8 before doing likewise to 2nd seed Nadal in his semi-final. He started well against Nadal winning the 1st set 6-4 but when the clay court master won the 2nd set 6-2 it look all over for the young Greek. He finished strongly though to win the final set 6-3. His round of 16 and 32 matches were both regulation straight sets victories.

This pair have met once and that was in Canada on a hard court in 2019 where Tsitsipas won in a tough 3 sets.

Djokovic 7/20

Tsitsipas 21/10

Suggested Bet: Number of sets = 3 at 27/20

Djokovic is the obvious favourite here but Tsitsipas has beaten 2 excellent clay court players and I can see this one going the distance.
