Stefanos Tsitsipas Vs Ilya Ivashka Match Prediction: Who Will Win This Match?

The Belarusian plays to his strengths better on hard courts. Apart from his serve, he doesn’t have much variety or patience to carefully construct points that is needed on clay. On the other hand, Tsitsipas has loads more experience than Ivashka at the highest level of the sport and is well-equipped for this surface. He likes to dictate points with his heavy forehand and has improved his slice backhand as well to add another facet to his game. The Greek might see a lot of serves past him, but remaining patient and letting himself settle into the match will get him the win.

Prediction: Tsitsipas to win in straight sets.
