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.
