Novak Djokovic

Novak played incredibly well today against Thiem. Most of his shots and made points have been placed in the highlights because some of them looked out of this world. Thiem might have been not at his 100% today but Djoko definitely was and the guy seemed unstoppable. Expect Novak to take this form to the final and show how good he is at the highest stage.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas surprisingly managed to beat Nadal in 3 sets after a long and beautiful fight between two great players. The Greek was good on attacking Nadal and not giving a lot of room to breath and played rallies incredibly well. Only 20 y.o Tsitsipas kept his cool without letting Nadal take back control of the game. Even though Stefan played well it doesn’t seem like he has enough left to defeat Djokovic tomorrow.

 

H2H

Tsitsipas played vs Djokovic only once in Canada, ATP Masters and managed to win the game in 3 sets.
