Defending champion, Stefanos Tsitsipas, meets Vasek Pospisil in the quarterfinals of the 2020 Marseille Open. Who will book their spot in the semifinals?
Stefanos Tsitsipas was superb in his straight sets victory over Mikael Ymer. Tsitsipas started out strong and never let up. Tsitsipas has struggled in 2020, but in that performance he showed us that he is back and ready to play at his best. Tsitsipas is the defending champion here and I am adamant that he will want nothing less than to win it again. Tsitsipas has the game to beat anyone in the game, and he has done it multiple times. Will Tsitsipas dominate here in Marseille?
Vasek Pospisil was very consistent in his second-round victory against Hubert Hurkacz. Pospisil was able to play the tough moments with confidence and he was able to maintain his composure. Pospisil has had a great start to 2020, already reaching a final and beating a top 10 player in Daniil Medvedev. Will Pospisil be able to pull off another upset when he meets world No.6 here in Marseille?
This will be the first meeting between both players and this seems to be a pretty straight forward prediction. Stefanos Tsitsipas seems to be back on track and determined to defend his title. Tsitsipas is an extremely dangerous player when determined and Pospisil does not have the game to challenge him. It might be tight in some moments, but look for Tsitsipas to win.
Stefanos Tsitsipas to win.
