Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Milos Raonic

The Line: -- Over/Under:
There is a big clash of players at the third round of the Australian Open where Milos Raonic is set to play against Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece.
Milos Raonic has looked in dominant form throughout this tournament with the Canadian player dominating with power and big serve. In the previous round, Milos Raonic defeated Christian Garin in straight sets. It was a dominant performance by Raonic as he won all of his service games and 4 return games. The serving was especially strong as Milos Raonic hit 19 aces and won 78% of his service points. Raonic has a good record at the Australian Open as he made the semifinals of this tournament in 2016. That being said, this is expected to be a challenging match for Milos Raonic as he is playing against the number 6 seed.
On the other side of the coin, Stefanos Tsitsipas has been in outstanding form. Tsitsipas ended 2019 by winning the ATP Finals and the Greek superstar has brought the good form into this season. It was a simple task for Stefanos Tsitsipas as he received a bye in the second round after his opponent was forced to retire prior to the start of the match. Similar to Raonic, Stefanos Tsitsipas has a good record at the Australian Open and he is in a good position to challenge for the title.
This will be the first time that Stefanos Tsitsipas and Milos Raonic will be playing each other at an ATP event.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Stefanos Tsitsipas to win this match. Milos Raonic has been in good touch but I don’t see him having the ability to maintain intensity with Stefanos Tsitsipas. Stefanos Tsitsipas has been an elite player over the past season and I see him being good enough to win.
