Most of the stats are fairly with Tsitsipas’ rate of service games won far superior. The three-time grand slam champion will have to be more clinical on break points and increase his season average 1st serve percentage to have a chance of winning.
Tsitsipas has had another incredible season having won his first masters 1000 title in Monte-Carlo followed by a Roland Garros final where he nearly beat Novak Djokovic. After a slight dip in form, the Greek reached back-to-back semi-finals in Toronto and Cincinnati and is once again finding confidence and his best tennis.
Murray will need to play the best match of the past 12 months if he wants to beat Tsitsipas and will have to be aggressive as well as take advantage of any short balls from the Greek. The serve is going to be key for the Brit if he wants to dominate points from the start and prevent the world number three from making a quick start. Anything is possible with Murray at grand slams but this could be a step too far.
Prediction: Tsitsipas in four sets.
