It is the match we have all been waiting for, as the World No.3, takes on the World No.6 in what is going to be an incredible rematch after Tsitsipas beat Thiem to win the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals. Will Dominic Thiem get his revenge or will Tsitsipas continue to build up momentum here at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown?
Stefanos Tsitsipas has been absolutely incredible here at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown and he has shown us time and time again that he is the best young player out there at the moment. Tsitsipas will want to prove that he can consistently beat top players and he will use this as a way to bring out his best tennis. Tsitsipas played some great matches and he loves to play against tough opponents. Expect Tsitsipas to come out and be the best he has been this weekend.
Dominic Thiem is finally here at the Ultimate Tennis Showdown and he will be looking to build up momentum after winning the Adria Tour title in Belgrade. Thiem has been playing a lot as of recent, however, he has been playing on clay courts. As the Ultimate Tennis Showdown is on hard courts, Thiem might have to get used to the bounce and pace of the ball and it will take him a few matches to do so. However, this is the world No.3 we are talking about, and we all know that he can beat anyone and everyone consistently when on top of his game.
This is going to be the 8th meeting between both players with Dominic Thiem leading the head to head 4-3. Thiem leads to head to head, but in my opinion, Tsitsipas is the better player, especially on hard courts. Tsitsipas will want to show us that he is the best out of the young players and he will come out here and play his best tennis. Thiem will be most likely tired from all the travel he has done in the last week and he will need to adapt his game to this new tournament-style and to the courts. Give me Tsitsipas who is used to this tournament already.
Stefanos Tsitsipas to win.
