Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Novak Djokovic Prediction, Head-to-Head, Preview and Live Stream- Astana Open 2022

The 2022 Astana Open final will feature world no. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas versus 21-time Major champion Novak Djokovic on Sunday.

To advance to the semifinals, Tsitsipas defeated Hubert Hurkacz, Luca Nardi, and Mikhail Kukushkin in straight sets. In the final four, he faced another top-10 player Andrey Rublev. Tsitsipas had numerous opportunities to regain serve, including when the Russian served for the opening set at 5-4, but he consistently erred, losing the first set. Tsitsipas acted when Rublev served to keep the match alive at 5-4. The Greek won the set by successfully breaking his opponent’s serve. After that, the Greek won the remaining three games of the set to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 and advance to his sixth season final.

After defeating Karen Khachanov, Botic van de Zandschulp, and Cristian Garin, Djokovic advanced to the semifinals where he faced Daniil Medvedev. The Russian took the opening blow when he broke in the fifth game of the opening set to take a 3-2 lead. This time, he was able to maintain his lead, and he won the opening set. The second set, which was followed by a tie-break, saw the pair protect their serves admirably. Eventually, the Serb gained the upper hand and won the set to tie the match at one set apiece. Unfortunately, Medvedev’s injury prevented him from continuing after this point, advancing Djokovic to his seventh final of the year.
