Daniil Medvedev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream- Cincinnati Open

At the 2022 Cincinnati Open, top-10 players Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev are slated to square off in the semifinals on Saturday. Read below for Daniil Medvedev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview, Betting Tips and Live Stream.

After receiving a first-round bye, Medvedev began his Cincinnati campaign by defeating Botic van de Zandschulp and Denis Shapovalov in straight sets. The World No. 1’s quarterfinal opponent was Taylor Fritz.

The break point opportunities Fritz had throughout the opening set went unutilized. When serving to stay in the set at 5-4 and 6-5, Medvedev had to save set points twice after fending off a few break points early on. The Russian was faultless in the ensuing tiebreak, taking the set by scoring seven straight points.

Stefanos Tsitsipas won over Diego Schwartzman and Filip Krajinovic in the first stages to earn a matchup with John Isner in the quarterfinals. In the opening set, neither player even came close to having a break point. In the tiebreaker, the Greek prevailed to win the set.

Prior to Isner’s decisive break in the set’s 11th game, the second set appeared to be headed in the same direction. In order to win the set and force a tiebreaker, he served it out in the ensuing game.

In the third set, both players maintained consistency on service, but Tsitsipas stepped up his game in the closing stages to win the match 7-6 (5), 5-7, 6-3.

Daniil Medvedev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Predictions

Both players lost early at the Canadian Open last week, but they have found their form again in Cincinnati. Medvedev has been rock solid this week. In the quarterfinals, Fritz put him to the test, but he raised his game to new heights to win. The world number one made 32 winners compared to just 19 unforced errors while delivering 18 aces.

To defeat Isner in their matchup in the last eight, Tsitsipas had to work really hard. The 24-year-old had nine unforced errors and 41 wins throughout the round. Although he was able to defeat him, Medvedev is the next challenging opponent.

Tsitsipas has also had trouble getting past his next opponent’s tenacious defence. The Greek’s return stance has been enhanced, which will be helpful when playing against a skilled server like Medvedev.

On a hardcourt, Tsitsipas last defeated the Russian in 2019. Medvedev has a good understanding of how to play the Greek. The World No. 1 is expected to prevail even if the match is close to a tie.

Daniil Medvedev is the pick to triumph in three sets.
