Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Daniel Galan Prediction
Even though Galan is well down the rankings, he can be a difficult opponent. The Columbian has a strong serve and favours brief rallies. Galan, like his opponent, like to attack from behind with the help of his powerful serve and aggressive forehand. The World No. 5 should have enough left in his tank to defeat the 26-year-old Galan and go to the next round, despite the possibility that Galan may put up a fight.
