Tsitsipas vs Anderson / ATP Toronto – In the semi-final of the Masters in Toronto we have a bit unusual match between young Greek player S. Tsitis pas and South African K. Anderson. After he eliminated N. Djokovic from the tournament Tsitsipas did the same to A. Zverev, while Anderson defeated much easier than expected G. Dimitrov.
Tsitsipas vs Anderson begins 11.08.2018 at 21:00 CET.
Tsitsipas is young Greek player. He is just 19-year old but occupies the 27th place in the ATP list, which is at the same time the best rating in his career. Tsitispas showed in previous round that he is in very good shape this season when he eliminated the second seed A. Zverev. The Greek was on verge of defeat but thanks to his combativeness he managed to turn the result up-side down and reach the semi-finals of Masters Series tournament.
Zverev had routinely started the match and almost effortlessly won the first set. The German started the second set in the same rhythm and everyone believed that the match is over when the result read 4-1 in games. Zverev had match point a bit later when the result was 5-3 but he failed to win the key game and from that moment everything changed in favour of the Greek player. Zverev had two match points in the tie-break of the second set but even that wasn’t enough to win.
Anderson had totally outclassed Dimitrov, and that is the shortest possible description of match between World’s no. 5 and 6. We didn’t see good tennis that we had expected, just as disappointed spectators. Result of the quarter-final match was 6-2, 6-2 and everyone who ever more closely followed the ATP tournaments knows that the result doesn’t fit reputation of the two players.
We have to admit that Anderson did his job maximally correctly and the Bulgarian was the one who played well below his abilities. Anderson made by two breaks in each set and he never faced a break point in his service games. The result and statistic tell us that Anderson absolutely dominated the match. It is a bit ironical but we need to add that Dimitrov was better only in number of double faults.
Tsitsipas vs Anderson PICK
This is going to be the second ATP match between the two players. The first one was played this season in Estoril, which uses clay courts, and Tsitsipas won 6-7, 6-3, 6-3. We know that Anderson has better chance to win if the surface is hard. The South African plays well this season; he played in the final of Wimbledon and we believe that the experience and strong service will help him to reach the final of tournament in Toronto.
Pick: Anderson wins
