Stefanos Tsitsipas against Mikael Ymer head to head
There have been three previous matches between these two players and Tsitsipas has won every time. The last time they faced each other was at the Australian Open earlier this year, where Tsitsipas rolled over Ymer in straight sets.
They’ve never competed on clay before.
Tsitsipas stretched by Kolar
Tsitsipas may have been a Monte Carlo Masters winner this season and secured a second-place finish in Rome, but his start at this year’s French Open has been far from spectacular.
In the first round, Tsitsipas had to bounce back from two sets down against Lorenzo Musetti to edge his Italian opponent in five. And a very tough fight followed against the virtually unknown Zdenek Kolar, who finished the last four sets, three of which went to tie-breaks.
The match lasted over four hours and in the end only centimeters separated the two players. Where Tsitsipas struggled was on his first serve – he only got 58% of it.
While winning 56% of second serve points, he suffered a few breaks of serve. In fact, Kolar had a chance to win the second set where he went ahead by a break and later had a set point in the tiebreaker only to see his chances diminished.
Can Tsitsipas finally grab a comfortable win?
Ymer stuns Evans in round two
Daniel Evans doesn’t particularly like playing on clay, but went into his second round match against Mikael Ymer as a 1/2 favorite to win it. Three hours and 23 minutes later, it was Ymer who had the last laugh as he secured his third-round spot with a four-set win.
Ymer won 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to set up his fourth clash with Tsitsipas and will look to do better on clay against the Greek than in any of his previous three games.
The Swede took a 5-1 lead in the first set, but then lost the initiative in the second set and secured a draw. Evans got an early break of serve in the third but after Ymer brushed that away there was no turning back as he broke the Brit twice more to take the lead.
Evans had another chance in the fourth set as he took a 3-1 lead, but for the second straight year Ymer raced to win the next five games and thus stroll the match into round three.
Tsitsipas v Ymer prediction and tip
Tsitsipas will be desperate for some uncomplicated competition and while Ymer has shown what he’s capable of, he’s also been prone to poor form lately. Expects Tsitsipas to win in three.
