S. Tsitsipas vs N. Basilashvili one more great match of the 1/16 – Finals at Australian Open Grand Slam Tournament taking place in Australia. Both talented players will play in a serious confrontation. Review our thoughts on this match here below.

 

S. Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas in one of the greatest young player of our time. Last year was very successful for him, as he becomes Next Gen Champion! Tsitsipas feels great on Hard Court, as well on opened and closed stadiums. Last year he played 89 matches in total and won 57 of them, that is a very strong result for young talent. However, Greek need to improve his self by gaining more confidence and calmness. He used to be more concentrate on every set and game, it remains only to direct him in the right way and he will achieve very high results.

 

N. Basilashvili

Nikoloz Basilashvili is a greatly talented player with already much experience. Last year was most successful for him, as he won two Titles on different surfaces. Basilashvili was qualified to Hamburg ATP 500 Tournament on Clay Ground and unexpectedly reached a final where won against experienced Leonardo Mayer in two sets 6:2/6:2. In almost end of the season, Nikoloz proved he is a strong player by reaching Beijing ATP 500 Hard Court Final and won it against the recently returned Argentine star Del Potro. Now Georgian deservedly stands at highest ATP Rank of his career and apparently ready to prove that he deserves even more respect. Basilashvili is a physically strong player, with a great serve, sometimes unpredictable style, and confident backhand. As we can see these skills gave a result by playing even on the highest tennis level.
