Greek tennis superstar, Stefanos Tsitsipas will begin his 2019 ATP Indian Wells Open in the second round. At this stage of the tournament, Stefanos Tsitsipas will play against Felix Auger Aliassime from Canada.
Stefanos Tsitsipas received an opening round bye due to the fact that he is the number 9 seed for this tournament. It has been a good 2019 season for Tsitsipas and he enters this tournament in really good form having made the final of the Dubai Tennis Championship last week. Prior to the Dubai Tennis Championships, Stefanos Tsitsipas won the Open 13 in France. Stefanos Tsitsipas is currently world number 10 and he is looking very confident which will make him very hard to beat.
On the other side of the court, Felix Auger Aliassime enters this match having won his previous fixture in straight sets against Cameron Norrie from the United Kingdom. It was a dominant display by Felix Auger Aliassime as he won 100% of his service games while breaking his opponents serve on 3 occasions. The serving was the most impressive aspect as Felix Auger Aliassime had a first serve percentage of 80% and won 76% of the points played during his service games. This will be a much tougher match for Felix Auger Aliassime as Tsitsipas is a much stronger opponent.
This will be the first time that Felix Auger Aliassime and Stefanos Tsitsipas will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Stefanos Tsitsipas to win this match. Stefanos Tsitsipas is in elite form having just won the Open 13. Stefanos Tsitsipas looks high on confidence and is a much stronger player when compared to Felix Auger Aliassime. With confidence and form on his side, I see Stefanos Tsitsipas winning this match with ease.
