Match Predict – Handicap (-4) for Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas has a solid (4-1) lead over Khachanov. He will be favoured in the upcoming match. Karen, of course, had an excellent match in the second round against Carreno Busta, however, we believe that he is not ready to compete on equal terms with the fifth racket in the world yet.

Total Games – Under 22

The last face-off between Tsitsipas and Khachanov ended in two sets. This match is likely to be played in two sets. Tsitsipas is in great form and feels most comfortable on the clay this season.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Karen Khachanov vs Stefanos Tsitsipas 

Karen Khachanov:

Khachanov is looking pretty good at the current tournament in Rome. In the first round, Karen expectedly defeated Giulio Zeppieri in two sets (6-3, 6-4).

Khachanov was finally able to perform well at a major tournament. Reaching the third round of the Masters is already a success for him.

In addition, in the second round, Karen stopped Pablo Carreno Busta (6-4, 2-6, 6-1). The third set was particularly spectacular as the Russian lost only one game to the Spaniard.

For Khachanov it was his first win against a top-20 opponent since last October. It’s good that he won, but it’s not a pretty fact.

Stefanos Tsitsipas:

Tsitsipas has been doing well on the court this season. In April, Stefanos won the Masters in Monte Carlo, beating Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (6-3, 7-6) in the final.

Tsitsipas, meanwhile, started in Rome with an epic win over Grigor Dimitrov (6-3, 5-7, 7-6).

For Tsitsipas, it was his third match against the Bulgarian in the last couple of weeks. It seems as though his opponent is slowly learning how to play against the fifth-ranked player of the world.

Tsitsipas won the first set without much effort, but then he ran into problems. First, Stefanos was unable to serve when the score was 5-4 in the second set, and in the deciding set, he had to win back two match points.

All in all, an overly nervous match, but on the other hand, sometimes such victories are needed too. The game against Dimitrov showed that Tsitsipas is in a good form.

Safe Bets

In 4 of Tsitsipas’ last 5 matches, less than 9.5 games have been played in the first set. We offer to bet on “1st Set Games – Under 9.5” with the odds of 1.70.
