Andy Murray vs Stefanos Tsitsipas: Prediction and Betting Tips
Andy Murray in tough first-round opposition
It’s been a tough battle for Andy Murray to fight back from his second hip surgery in 2019. The former world number one is currently ranked 114 in the world and won just five of his ten matches this year.
In addition, the 34-year-old Brit won two consecutive matches just once all year. That was in Wimbledon where he was eliminated in the third round. Moreover, Murray lost two of his matches against top ten ranked players.
Notably, the Scot won the US Open in 2012 as one of the three Grand Slam titles of his career. Indeed, Murray is one of the greatest players of his generation, but injuries had its toll on him in recent years.
Murray Key Stats
- Murray served 60% this year
- The Scot played 25.7 games per match this year
- The former US Open champion won 76.4% of his service games
Stefanos Tsitsipas must not find trouble in advancing to the second round
Tsitsipas is one of the players who played the most matches this season, 62 to be exact. Consequently, the Greek confessed lately that he feels exhausted mentally and physically.
However, the world number three took a week off before the US Open and will look forward to a good performance. Moreover, Tsitsipas is looking to advance past the third round here for the first time.
In any case, Tsitsipas is doing very well this year. In fact, he won two titles in Monte Carlo and Lyon. in addition, the number three seed reached the semi-final of the Australian Open and the Final of the French Open.
Tsitsipas Key Stats

Andy Murray vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Prediction
The fact that Murray beat a top ten player just once since 2018, shows the Brit’s weak form. In spite of showing some resilience against number nine Hurkaz in Cincinnati ten days ago, still, he lost in two sets.
On the other hand, Tsitsipas is keen on reaching the advanced rounds this year after seemingly an easy draw. But the Greek needs to be consistent and be on top form to prevent any surprises.
We think Tsitsipas has the edge and will beat Murray as he is the clear favorite with odds of 1.045 ay Vbet. Thus we will back the total sets played in this match and predict under 3.5 sets.
