Daniil Medvedev v Stefanos Tsitsipas live stream, preview and tips | Australian Open 2022

Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas will lock horns on Friday in a rematch of last season’s Australian Open Semi-Final.

Medvedev enjoyed a flawless run until the Quarter-Finals this week when he was really tested by Felix Auger-Aliassime.

The Russian managed a superb comeback, having fought from two sets down to defeat the Canadian.

Medvedev is now looking to become the first active non-big-3 player to win two consecutive Grand Slam titles. He is the heavy favourite to win the title in Melbourne and his form over the past few seasons has been fantastic.

After a couple of unconvincing results at the Australian Open 2022, Tsitsipas produced his best performance to demolish Jannik Sinner in straight sets in the Quarter-Finals.

The Greek star is now into the Semi-Finals of the Australian Open for the third time in his career. He now looks like a real contender for the trophy and he is eyeing a second Grand Slam final and a first one in Melbourne.

Tsitsipas is the youngest player to make five Semi-Final appearances in Grand Slams since Novak Djokovic back in 2008 when he was 21.

The Russian has lost only four of his last 23 encounters with top-10 players on the hard surface. In addition, two of these defeats coming against Djokovic.

Over 38.5 Games at odds of 5/6 with Bet365 seems to be a solid bet for this clash.

Medvedev v Tsitsipas is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 08.30am GMT.

Rising star Jannik Sinner will take on fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Quarter-Finals of the 2022 Australian Open on Wednesday.

Sinner has extended his winning streak on hard courts to ten matches with a straight-set victory over Alex de Minaur on Monday. He has already won seven matches in 2022 and has only dropped one set in four matches here at the Australian Open.

Sinner, 20, is the youngest player to make two Quarter-Final appearances in Grand Slams since Nick Kyrgios (19) in 2015. The Italian is in great shape at the moment, but it has to be said that he has not played against a top-10 player since the start of the new year.

Meanwhile, Tsitsipas survived a scare in the previous round as he edged a five-set thriller against Taylor Fritz. The Greek star began his Australian Open campaign with a commanding straight-sets win over Mikael Ymer but has dropped a set in each of the previous three rounds.

Tsitsipas has won all his previous four Quarter-Final matches in Grand Slams, with two of those wins coming here at the Australian Open back in 2019 and 2021.

It’s a tough call, but we think that Sinner will win this one as Tsitsipas might be tired after playing some tough matches in the previous three rounds. Our prediction is Jannik Sinner to win at odds of 4/6 with Bet365.

Sinner v Tsitsipas is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 4am GMT.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Taylor Fritz will lock horns in the Fourth Round of the 2022 Australian Open on Monday.

Fritz has had an excellent season in 2021 which has catapulted him to the 22nd spot in the ATP rankings. He began his Australian Open adventure with a 2-1 victory over Norrie, but then he secured two straight-set wins over Marterer and Tiafoe. However, he had his toughest test in the third round when he played a marathon match against Roberto Bautista-Agut.

Prior to this edition of the Australian Open, Fritz was knocked out in the third round on three consecutive occasions.

Tsitsipas, on the other hand, kicked off his Australian Open campaign with a straight-set win against Ymer and followed this up with two more 3-1 victories against Baez and Paire. Tsitsipas is still looking to hit peak form after his elbow surgery back in November.

This will be the Greek’s 7th four-round appearance at a Grand Slam. Stefanos has been a semi-finalist here in Melbourne back in 2019 and 2021.

We expect a close contest, so we’re backing Over 37.5 Games at odds of 4/6 with Bet365.

Fritz v Tsitsipas is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 08.00am GMT.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexei Popyrin will be facing each other in the 2nd round of the Paris Masters on Wednesday at 1.00pm (UK Time).

Stefanos Tsitsipas has suffered a few bad beatings over the past few months and here we can mention a couple of them. He lost to Krajinovic in Hamburg, to Humbert at the Tokyo Olympics, Opelka in Toronto, Alcaraz at the US Open, Basilashvili at the Indian Wells and most recently against Tiafoe in Vienna.

Tsitsipas has reached the quarterfinals of the Paris Masters in 2019, but his other two visits here in 2018 and 2020 ended in the second round.

Meanwhile, Alexei Popyrin has lost five and won five of his last ten matches on hard courts. Popyrin actually lost in qualifying stages for the Paris Masters, but he replaced Lloyd Harris in the main draw as a lucky loser. He looked impressive in the opening round against De Minaur, winning in under 1 hour 6-0, 6-3. His most notable performance in 2021 on hard courts was in Singapore where he managed to lift the title after a three-set win against Bublik.

Our best prediction for this clash is Under 22.5 Games at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

Tsitsipas v Popyrin is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 1.00pm BST.

Stefanos Tsitsipas twice came from behind to defeat former US Open champion Andy Murray in an epic five-setter at Flushing Meadows on Monday.

Third seed Tsitsipas was in danger of falling on the opening day as he trailed 1-0 and 2-1 against three-time Grand Slam winner Murray on Arthur Ashe.

However, the Greek dug deep by controlling set four before an early break in the decider helped secure a narrow 2-6, 7-6, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 victory after four hours and 49 minutes.

Tsitsipas has never been past the third round in his three previous appearances at the fourth major of the season.

He fell behind as Murray broke twice during a dominant opening set.

US Open champion in 2012, the former world number one had two opportunities to double his lead as the second went to a tie-break, but Tsitsipas hung on to level proceedings.

Murray responded well to edge his nose back in front, but his opponent hit back by racing into a 5-0 lead on the way to setting up a decider.

Runner-up at Roland Garros in June, Tsitsipas crucially broke in the opening game and held to eventually scrape over the line in just under five hours.

Former US Open finalist Kevin Anderson also needed five sets to edge out Jiri Vesely and set up a clash with 11th seed Diego Schwartzman, who breezed past Ricardis Berankis 7-5, 6-3, 6-3.

Fifth and eighth seeds Andrey Rublev and Casper Ruud also prevailed in straight sets against Ivo Karlovic and Yuichi Sugita respectively, as did Grigor Dimitrov against Sam Riffice.

British number one Dan Evans required four sets to overcome Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro, while 12th seed Felix Auger-Aliassime beat Evgeny Donskoy 7-6, 3-6, 7-6, 7-6.

However, there was no joy for Ugo Humbert and former winner Marin Cilic.

Seeded 23rd, Humbert lost in five sets to world number 141 Peter Gojowczyk, and 2014 champion Cilic was forced to retire in the decider having led 2-0 against Germany’s Philipp Kolschreiber.

Over in the ladies’ draw, Sloane Stephens edged out good friend Madison Keys in a tie-break and what was a repeat of the 2017 final.

Meanwhile, three-time runner-up Victoria Azarenka reeled off 11 successive games from 4-1 down in the opening set to defeat Tereza Martincova 6-4, 6-0.

French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova also prevailed in straight sets against Astra Sharma, as did two-time Grand Slam winner Garbine Muguruza over Donna Vekic.

Teenage sensation Coco Gauff and 2016 champion Angelique Kerber recovered from losing the opening set to see off Magda Linette and Dayana Yastremska respectively while Simona Halep, who missed Roland Garros and Wimbledon, marked her Slam return with a 6-4, 7-6 triumph over Camila Giorgi.

Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas go head-to-head in an unmissable Quarter-Final at the 2021 National Bank Open in Toronto on Friday.

Only the second competitive meeting between the two players will see them square off for a place in the Last Four of the ATP 1000 event.

World number three Tsitsipas celebrated his 23rd birthday on Thursday with an impressive straight-sets victory over in-form Karen Khachanov in the Last 16.

The Greek star was runner-up in this year’s French Open and a semi-finalist in the Australian Open, while also picking up his first ATP Masters 1000 title at the Monte-Carlo Masters in April.

Ruud, meanwhile, is in the midst of a stunning spell of form which has seen him go 14 games unbeaten, winning his last three tournaments.

The 22-year-old, who has four ATP titles to his name this season, has defeated Marin Cilic and Dusan Lajovic so far this week and is gradually beginning to produce his top form on the hard court surface.

Ruud prevailed in straight sets when he faced Tsitsipas in the Round of 16 of the Madrid Masters earlier this year and will be wary of a potential revenge mission from the Greek.

The bookmakers make hard court specialist Tsitipas the 2/9 favourite, but we expect a closer game than the odds suggest, and our best bet is for over 21.5 total games.

Ruud v Tsitsipas is available to watch via a live stream online from approximately 5pm BST.

Either Roberto Bautista Agut or Reilly Opelka will await the winner in Saturday’s Semi-Finals.

Can Stefanos Tsitsipas stop Novak Djokovic from reaching his fifth French Open final?

Djokovic vs Tsitsipas is live from Roland Garros on Friday 9 October, 5pm local/4pm BST

World no. 1 Novak Djokovic must contend with ATP Finals champion Stefanos Tsitsipas – and his own physical issues – to reach the French Open final and fulfil his end of a probable date with destiny, also known as 12-time champion Rafael Nadal.

Tsitsipas has beaten Djokovic twice, but the top seed will also be concerned with the neck and arm issues which troubled him during a quarterfinal victory over Pablo Carreno Busta which saw him drop his first set of the tournament.

Djokovic vs Tsitsipas: Head-to-head

Novak Djokovic leads the head-to-head with Stefanos Tsitsipas 3-2, and has won their last two encounters in straight sets (6-1, 6-2 at the Paris Masters last year; 6-3, 6-4 in the Dubai final in February 2020).

Tsitsipas beat Djokovic in their first meeting at the Canada Masters in July 2018 and the Shanghai Masters in autumn 2019.

Djokovic is 1-0 vs Tsitsipas on clay, beating him 6-3, 6-4 at the Madrid Masters in May 2019.

Djokovic vs Tsitsipas: Preview

Novak Djokovic hit his first speed bump of his quest for a second French Open title on Wednesday when he faced Pablo Carreno Busta, the only player to have technically beaten him in 2020 (although Djokovic has still not lost a completed match this year, or to Carreno Busta, ever).

Djokovic dropped the first set to Carreno Busta 4-6 after having lost just 25 games in four matches at Roland Garros, and was clearly physically struggling at the start of the match. Carreno Busta questioned the validity of Djokovic calling the trainer after the first set, but the world no. 1 came on court with tape on his neck and was attempting to stretch out his left arm from the first point, cradling it during the first changeover and even whacking it with his racquet.

After the match, Djokovic didn’t want to go into too much detail about the issue but said that the pain faded away as his body warmed up – entirely plausible, especially given the unusually cold conditions this French Open is being played in, which Nadal has spoken out about.
Djokovic never looked entirely comfortable, but he played good enough tennis to beat Carreno Busta fairly easily, and that’s saying something, given the way that the Spaniard has been playing and competing recently.

How will he fare against Stefanos Tsitsipas? The Greek came into his quarterfinal clash with Andrey Rublev trailing 0-3 in the head-to-head and with plenty of psychological baggage – having failed to serve out the win against Rublev in the recent Hamburg Open final, for one thing; having had six match points against Borna Coric at the US Open and ending up losing, for another. He finished it having thoroughly outplayed Rublev for a 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 win, leaving the Russian looking completely out of ideas, and having done it all looking relaxed and playing within himself – he finished with 35 winners to 17 unforced errors, and having been broken just once.

It’s hard to imagine better preparation or a more confidence-boosting victory ahead of a semifinal clash with Djokovic, and Tsitsipas is incredibly comfortable on clay. With Djokovic potentially struggling with this physical issue, too, it’s hard to think of a better set-up for Tsitsipas to really take it to the world no. 1. And yet we’ve been here before with Djokovic, so many times. He knows – almost no one better – how to manage these matches, how to handle these opponents. If he’s in around the same physical condition as he seemed to be against Carreno Busta, I back him to win in a scratchy four.

Tsitsipas vs Rublev: Head-to-head

Andrey Rublev leads the head-to-head with Stefanos Tsitsipas 3-0. Each match has gone the distance, Rublev winning in three sets at the Quimper Challenger in 2017, in four sets at the US Open in 2019 and 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 at the Hamburg Open before the French Open began.

Tsitsipas vs Rublev: Preview

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev have been strangely in sync this tournament: They both contested the Hamburg Open final on what was the first day of Roland Garros 2020; they both came back from two sets down in the first round to win in five, in what was a career first for each; and both have looked largely untroubled since then.

Tsitsipas hasn’t dropped a set since the first round, gliding through with polished performances against Pablo Cuevas, Aljaz Bedene (who retired) and Grigor Dimitrov in a one-handed backhand duel in which he particularly impressed, looking much more incisive and able to power through the court.

Things have been a little trickier for Rublev, who dropped sets against both Alejandro Davidovich Fokina – no slouch on clay and not on bad form at all – and the talented, dangerous Marton Fucsovics in the fourth round. Like Tsitsipas’s win over Dimitrov, this was the most impressive victory: For once, Rublev had to be the steadier, more consistent player in the match, weathering Fucsovics’s ebbs and flows, and his ability to play the big points better and more cleverly earned him a place in the quarterfinals.

Tsitsipas does have a bit of a physical advantage, having had shorter matches, and ones less psychologically wearing than Rublev’s clash with Fucsovics, but the Russian is also match-tougher, having had to weather those storms.

Andrey Rublev (Susan Mullane-USA TODAY Sports/Sipa USA)

Then there’s the head-to-head. All their matches have been close: Their two best-of-three matches have been settled by almost identical scorelines (30 and 31 matches respectively), their one Grand Slam match went to 48 games; the winning margin for Rublev has been 2, 4 and 4 games respectively. That suggests that Tsitsipas is close, and that this French Open quarterfinal clash could be extremely close, too; the Greek actually served for the match in Hamburg, only to end up being broken, losing the last three games and double-faulting the trophy away. I thought before this tournament that Rublev would make the semifinals. I still think that. But it’s going to be close.

Tsitsipas vs Rublev: Prediction

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Grigor Dimitrov face off in a one-handed backhand battle to see who will make their first French Open quarterfinal.

After an early five-set test against Jaume Munar, it has been smooth sailing for Tsitsipas, who warmed up for the French Open by reaching the final in Hamburg. But he cannot afford to slip against the experienced Dimitrov if he is to make his first Grand Slam quarterfinal since his breakthrough run at the Australian Open.

Tsitsipas vs Dimitrov: Head-to-head

This is the first meeting between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Grigor Dimitrov.

Tsitsipas vs Dimitrov: Preview

Given that his breakthrough run came at a Grand Slam – the 2019 Australian Open, when he defeated Roger Federer on his way to the semifinals – Stefanos Tsitsipas can hardly be labelled an underachiever on the major stage. But it is the case that while the Greek has climbed as high as world no. 5, won five ATP Tour titles including the incredibly prestigious Nitto ATP Finals and reached an additional seven finals including two at ATP Tour Masters 1000 Series level, Tsitsipas is 7-5 in Grand Slam matches since that first Australian Open run. And in that timespan, he has defeated just one player ranked inside the top 50 in a best-of-five sets match.

Tsitsipas has already done better than he did at the US Open, where he lost in the third round to Borna Coric despite holding six match points, and showed grit by surviving a five-set battle with Jaume Munar in the first round before delivering a polished performance against Pablo Cuevas, who had pushed him hard in Hamburg, in the second (Aljaz Bedene, who retired in the third set, was not much of a challenge in the third round).

Grigor Dimitrov (©PHOTOPQR/LE PARISIEN/Arnaud Journois)

But this fourth-round clash against Dimitrov could be a test – and not just because one gets the impression that Tsitsipas himself is desperate to make a deep run, not least at Roland Garros, where he was crushed to lose 6-8 in the fifth set to Stan Wawrinka last year.
While Dimitrov has yet to make a quarterfinal at Roland Garros, it’s the only Grand Slam he hasn’t reached the semifinals of, and he has a lot more experience than Tsitsipas at this level (it’s his tenth major fourth-round match). Dimitrov played well at the Rome Masters in the run-up, defeating Jannik Sinner on his way to the quarterfinals and a three-set defeat to Denis Shapovalov, and his run through the draw at the French Open has been very smooth, partly because he hasn’t faced the toughest opposition: Three players ranked, in order, 103, 102 and 101, none of whom have taken a set off him (Roberto Carballes Baena, who stunned Shapovalov in the previous round, retired trailing 1-6, 3-6).

This means he has a physical advantage coming into this one, especially having not played the week before the tournament as Tsitsipas did, but may also mean he’s less match-tough than the Greek.

It’s tough to call. Dimitrov and Tsitsipas’s games are superficially similar, and neither really suited to these conditions. Tsitsipas is probably better at powering through these courts, but it feels as though Dimitrov has a physical advantage. The challenge is definitely there for the fifth seed to step up, impose himself on this match and this tournament and book himself a place in the quarterfinals; I’m backing him to do just that.

Aljaz Bedene beat Stefanos Tsitsipas in Rotterdam in February – can the fifth seed get revenge when they meet again at Roland Garros?

Tsitsipas vs Bedene: Head-to-head

Aljaz Bedene won the only previous match these two have played when he beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 7-5, 6-4 at the ABN AMRO WTT in Rotterdam in February. That match took place on indoor hard courts.

Tsitsipas vs Bedene: Preview

This is the second time in the past month or so that Stefanos Tsitsipas has come into a Grand Slam with very positive energy from the previous week. At the US Open, he came in on the back of a semifinal run in ‘Cincinnati’ – only to lose in the third round to Borna Coric despite holding six match points. This week, he came into Roland Garros having just made an excellent run to the final in Hamburg, beating Pablo Cuevas, Dusan Lajovic and Christian Garin before losing to Andrey Riblev. Can he avoid losing in the third round this time?

Tsitsipas has already had a close encounter of the five-set kind with defeat, having lost the first two sets against Jaume Munar before digging deep and pulling off the first comeback win of his career from such a position. Under the circumstances, I expected a long, tight match with Pablo Cuevas in the second round – they had played a close, high-quality one in Hamburg – but Tsitsipas rose to the occasion and dominated for a 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 victory.

The Greek lost just four points on his first serve and kept the unforced errors below 30 in his disciplined victory over Cuevas – now can he bring the same form against Bedene?

Aljaz Bedene (AAP Image/Michael Dodge)

This is the fourth time Bedene has reached the third round of a Grand Slam, and second time at the French Open after doing so in 2016 when he lost to Novak Djokovic in straight sets. The Slovenian, runner-up in Metz towards the end of last year, is not far off breaking back into the top 50 – his career-high ranking was world no. 43 in 2018 – and after reaching two ATP Tour quarterfinals in the first couple months of the year in Doha and Rotterdam, had a good ‘Cincinnati’ Masters where he reached the last 16 as a qualifier after wins over Christian Garin and Taylor Fritz.

Bedene’s win over Tsitsipas in Rotterdam was the second top-10 win of his career – the first came in Rome over Kevin Anderson via retirement – and he’s been very lucky with his opponents so far in Paris, defeating Arthur Rinderknech and Nikola Milojevic. Tsitsipas’s performance in that Rotterdam match was edgy and poor – he had the lead in the first set as well as multiple break points, but did not capitalise on his opportunities. It should not happen again: Even if Bedene should get into a lead, he doesn’t have the point-ending shots to prevent Tsitsipas getting back into the match. Assuming Tsitsipas can avoid a repeat of whatever demons assailed him during that US Open defeat to Coric, the Greek should reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the fourth time.

Tsitsipas vs Bedene: Prediction
