Tennis | Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Kevin Anderson
Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

The final 4 players remain in the ATP Rogers Cup event in Toronto. These players will battle it out for a spot in the final and eventually the title. One of the spots in the final will be filled with either Greek youngster, Stefanos Tsitsipas, or South African superstar, Kevin Anderson. Both these players are exceptionally skilled and have played very well during this tournament. This should mean that this will be an exceptionally interesting tennis match.

Stefanos Tsitsipas caused a major upset in the quarterfinals as he managed to eliminate world number 3, Alexander Zverev. The Greek teenager was superb in that match as he managed to fight back from one set down to eliminate to German superstar. Stefanos Tsitsipas has impressed greatly in this tournament as he has also beaten the likes of Dominic Thiem and Novak Djokovic. Stefanos Tsitsipas will look to eliminate another big name in this match.

Kevin Anderson, on the other hand, made it into this match by beating number 5 seed, Grigor Dimitrov. The South African won in straight sets and looked extremely dominant in that match. It seems like Anderson has made it this far into the tournament without breaking a sweat and it will be important for him to stay focussed since he will now be facing a teenager who is incredibly talented and is in the best form of his life.

This should be a great match but it is a contest which is very hard to predict. While Kevin Anderson has been playing well and is a great player, he has not been tested so far in the tournament. On the other hand, his opponent has been tested many times and has passed with flying colors. This makes it hard to see a clear winner but I will pick Kevin Anderson simply since he is more experienced and that might be the deciding factor in a semifinal clash.

 

Pick:
Kevin Anderson
