Grigor Dimitrov vs Aslan Karatsev Tips & Predictions

Karatsev has compiled an extraordinary run in his Grand Slam main draw debut in Melbourne, but I think it comes to an end in the quarter-finals against Dimitrov on Tuesday.

A qualifier and ranked No. 114 in the world, Karatsev is the lowest-ranked man to reach the quarter-finals at the Australian Open since 1991, with the Russian stunning Diego Schwartzman and Felix Auger-Aliassime in back-to-back matches.

The 27-year-old has explosive power off both wings and is playing without fear, however his brand of tennis isn’t sustainable (there’s a reason he has barely featured on tour at 27 years of age until now) and the experience and retrieving skills of Dimitrov will be a big step up in class.

Dimitrov has played some of his best tennis in Melbourne over the course of his career and the quick courts in 2021 are suiting his game style. The Bulgarian made light work of a fatigued Dominic Thiem in the R16, crushing last year’s runner-up in straight sets, so he’s fresh and ready to go for this one.

As mentioned, Dimitrov’s ability to defend should see him get that extra ball back that Karatsev hasn’t had to deal with yet. Throw in the fact that Karatsev has never played this many best-of-five set matches over the course of a week before, and I think Dimitrov is tremendous value to come away with a straight sets victory.
