Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Taylor Fritz Tips, Prediction & Preview

Stefanos Tsitsipas looks to remain undefeated in Australian Open fourth round matches when he faces World No. 22 Taylor Fritz on Monday.

Tsitsipas has gone on to reach the semi-finals on both occasions he’s made the second week at the Australian Open, but the Greek hasn’t been entirely convincing this time around.

Indeed, Tsitsipas underwent elbow surgery during the off-season and is still searching for his best tennis after a lacklustre ATP Cup and some tricky outings so far at Melbourne Park.

The World No. 4 did it easy in the opening round against Mikael Ymer, but Tsitsipas struggled in his subsequent matches, needing four sets to account for Grand Slam debutante Sebastian Baez and the enigmatic Benoit Paire.

Meanwhile, Fritz has been building towards this moment over the last six months and comes into this clash playing some career-best tennis.

Fritz has won 17 of his last 22 matches and started his current run with an Indian Wells semi-final finish, while it’s taken the likes of Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Marin Cilic to stop him over that period.

The American defeated Maximilian Marterer and Frances Tiafoe in straight sets before registering a magnificent five-set victory over Roberto Bautista Agut to reach his first major fourth round, snapping a seven-match losing streak in third rounds.

In this sort of form, Fritz is certainly capable of orchestrating the upset. He has nine top 10 wins over the course of his career and is playing his best tennis at the moment, while Tsitsipas looks vulnerable and there for the taking. If Fritz can maintain his current level and play some first-strike tennis with his forehand, he’s a good chance to continue his dream run in Melbourne.
