Greek sensation, Stefanos Tsitsipas, meets the German veteran, Philipp Kohlschreiber, in the second round of the Australian Open on Wednesday 21 January 2020.
Tsitsipas showed us on Monday why he is and should be considered one of the best players in the world. The Greek came out firing on all cylinders and beat Italian, Salvatore Caruso, in straight sets only losing 5 games! Stefanos feels at home in Melbourne and is growing in confidence after every match. Tsitsipas will want to ensure he can go deep in this tournament and show everyone that he is a real contender for the title.
German veteran, Philipp Kohlschreiber, won his opening match in convincing fashion. Kohlschreiber beat Marcos Giron in straight sets and booked his place in the second round of the Australian Open. The German will be happy with his performance as he was able to run away with the match after winning a tight first set. Now Philipp Kohlschreiber faces a different challenge.
Tsitsipas and Kohlschreiber have met twice before. Both of their previous matches went the way of the Greek and Kohlschreiber only won 1 set out of 5. Both players played extremely well in the first round. Tsitsipas demonstrated his skills and ability to take the ball early and dictate matches, Kohlschreiber on the other hand, showed us his power and experience. When analysing who will come out on top of this matchup, it is not hard to predict who will come out on top. Tsitsipas has the H2H advantage, the skills, and the confidence when it comes to this matchup. Tsitsipas will dictate play, move Kohlschreiber around the court and look to finish points off early. Tsitsipas wins this match. It could well go to 4 sets as the German has taken a set off the Greek in the past, but if Tsitsipas comes out playing like he did in his first match, it should be over in 3 quick sets.
Stefanos Tsitsipas will win this match in 3 sets.
