Sinner vs Tsitsipas: prediction for the Australian Open match
Jannik Sinner go against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarter-final match of the Australian Open. Who will progress to the next round of the tournament? Our prediction is in the article below.
Jannik Sinner has carried his momentum from last year and is currently on a winning streak of ten matches. Last season, the Italian tennis player won four trophies - at the tournaments in Melbourne, Washington, Sofia and Antwerp.
At the current competition, Sinner has defeated Joao Souza (6-4, 7-5, 6-1), Steve Johnson (6-2, 6-4, 6-4), Taro Daniel (6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-1) and Alex De Minaur (7-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Stefanos Tsitsipas also had a decent season in 2021. He won the tournaments in Lyon and Monte Carlo and was the runner-up at Roland Garros. But after losing in the final of the French major, he endured a dip in form.
At the 2022 Australian Open, the Greek tennis player got a landslide victory over Mikael Ymer (6-2, 6-4, 6-3), had close matches against Sebastian Baez (7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 6-4) and Benoit Paire (6-3, 7-5, 6-7, 6-4), and prevailed over Taylor Fritz in the round of 16 (4-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Sinner played 2 tie-breaks in the last 5 matches.
Tsitsipas has played over 9 games in the first set in 3 of his last 5 matches.
A Grand Slam semi-final is at stake, and both players will go all in today. The athletes are in great shape, and we expect at least four sets to be played in the upcoming fixture.
Our prediction - total over 38 games
Tsitsipas wasn't very confincing in his last match, but eventually he prevailed over Taylor Fritz. We believe, that Sinner will be able to take advantage of Tsitsipas' mistakes and get the upper hand here.
Second wager - Sinner to win
