Daniil Medvedev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Betting Tips & Predictions, with both players making their ATP Finals debut in this grudge match.
Daniil Medvedev has been in great form over the last few months, and he’s undoubtedly one of the men to beat this week. The Russian ace has won four titles already this season, including back-to-back Masters titles in Cincinnati and Shanghai over the last few months. Medvedev went on a run of reaching six successive finals during that period, which included reaching his first grand slam final at the US Open back in September. The twenty-three-year-old has also played very little tennis over the last month, and so he should be one of the fresher players coming into these Finals. Medvedev did, however, lose his last match ahead of these Finals, and he was far from his best in that defeat. Will that prove to be just a blip for the highly-fancied Russian?
Greek ace Stefanos Tsitsipas has had a great year, and he’s proven he has the game to beat the absolute best in this sport. Tsitsipas won the Next Gen Finals just twelve months ago, so it shows just how much he’s progressed in just twelve months. The Greek ace has won two titles so far this year, including a title on indoor hardcourts at the Open 13. The debutant did suffer from a loss of form over the summer, suffering a number of difficult defeats, but he’s rediscovered some of his best tennis over the last couple of months. Tsitsipas reached the final of the China Open last month, while he’s also won 12 of his last 16 matches. Can Stefanos Tsitsipas pick up a debut win at the ATP Finals?
These two players have not always got on, and so there’s that little of extra spice whenever they meet. Who will pick up a debut win at the 2019 ATP Finals?
Daniil Medvedev has been in tremendous form over the second half of the season, and he’s been playing some of the best tennis in the world in that period. The wold number four has won 30 of his 34 matches since Wimbledon, while he also won three titles in that period. Medvedev has also dominated this matchup in recent years. The Russian ace holds a perfect 5-0 record against Tsitsipas, which includes winning their sole previous meeting on indoor hard courts. Two of those victories came earlier this season, while Medvedev won their most recent meeting last month in straight-sets.
While Medvedev has won all five of their previous meetings, their contests are always closely contested. They’ve had disagreements in the past, and that probably motivates each of them that little bit more when they face one another. All five of their previous meetings have featured at least 25 games, including Medvedev’s 2-0 win over Tsitsipas last month. Tsitsipas’ recent matches have also been closely contested, with 10 of his last 16 having featured at least 23 games, while 3 of Medvedev’s last 5 matches have also featured 23 games or more.
