Stefanos Tsitsipas Stats & Form

Stefanos Tsitsipas lost the opening match of the tournament against Andrey Rublev by 6-4 and 6-4 after winning only 68% of the points on his first serve comparing to 90% of his opponent. The Greek didn’t have any break points during the match while Rublev had seven.

It’s been a tough period of the year for Tsitsipas as he retired in the second round of last week’s Paris Masters against Alexei Popyrin with a minor injury.

Previously the Greek lost to players ranked much lower than him. In Vienna he lost in three sets to Frances Tiafoe after beating Grigor Dimitrov in the first round.

In Indian Wells, he also lost in three sets, this time against Nikoloz Basilashvili in the quarterfinals. He defeated Fabio Fognini, Alex De Minaur and Pedro Martinez until that point.

This season, Tsitsipas has a 55-19 overall record, with 26-8 on hard surface and only 6-5 indoors.

Obviously, Tsitsipas is still not at 100% after recent injury but he is a fighter and will not back down in Turin. After the loss in the first match, he is now with his back against the wall and will try his best tonight against Casper Ruud.

Casper Ruud Stats & Form

Casper Ruud qualifying for the ATP finals is his greatest accomplishment in his young career but the Norwegian has not come in Turin just to play and take pictures.

The 22-year-old performed well in the first match despite losing 7-6 and 6-2 to the World No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

Ruud broke first in the match and led 3-1 but couldn’t hold on and lost 7-4 in the tie-break. The second set was a different story as Djokovic took his game on another level to win that part of the game in just 30 minutes.

Ruud had 9 aces in the match which is pretty high for him but also made 4 double faults. His 62% of hitting the first serve will have to go up if he wants to have a chance against Tsitsipas. Ruud won 63% on his first serve and only 42% on his second serves, another aspect of the game that needs to improve quickly.

The Norwegian has a 53-16 record this season with 16-6 on hard surface and 5-3 indoors.

Recently in Paris, Ruud defeated Marcos Giron and Alexander Bublik before losing to Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals.

Previously in Vienna, Ruud defeated Lloyd Harris and Lorenzo Sonego but couldn’t go past Jannik Sinner.

Betting Tip: Vancouver Canucks vs Colorado Avalanche

Both players need to win this one if they want to have chances to advance to the semifinals and all that is guaranteed is that they both will put in a fight. If fully healthy, Tsitsipas would be a favorite but based on what we saw in his first match, that wouldn’t be a safe bet.

Instead, we recommend to play over 22.5 games.
