Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Borna Coric – Match Predictions
Over 22.5 Games
The duo met twice in 2023, with Tsitsipas triumphing on each occasion. The meeting in Rome was a short-lived affair but on the hard courts of the United Cup, the meeting was 31 games long. The surface is the same and Tsitsipas is coming on the back of a 34-game marathon against Nicolas Jarry. With both players performing at close to their full potential, we are backing an exciting duel that will take its time in finding a victor. Based on this, we are expecting to see Over 22.5 Games.
2-1 to Stefanos Tsitsipas
Interestingly, two of Tsitsipas’ last three wins have come been three-setters. Coric’s last defeat on hard court was in the first round of the Miami Open but he fought tooth and nail in the 2-1 defeat to Tsitsipas. His last defeat to Tsitsipas on the same surface also needed three sets for him to lay down his weapons. As they meet in Los Cabos, we believe the same trend will continue and Tsitsipas should triumph with a 2-1 set score.
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Borna Coric Preview
Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Los Cabos Open.
The Greek ace started the 2023 calendar year bright by winning all four matches in the United Cup and then found himself on the wrong side of Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final. Since then, he has struggled to give his best on the ATP main tour. He had forgettable runs at Roland Garros and in Wimbledon, and belatedly seems to be in the right frame of mind. In Los Cabos, neither Isner nor Jarry could contain him and he will be hoping for a strong finish to the campaign.
Borna Coric has been enjoying a smooth journey in the Los Cabos tournament, reaching the semifinals with commanding victories over Jason Jung and Ilya Ivashka. He demonstrated strong form, conceding only ten games in these two matches combined. The Croatian player faced a top seed in his previous semifinal match this year but lost to Carlos Alcaraz in straight sets at the Madrid Masters. Nevertheless, his semifinal appearance in Los Cabos is a great forboding for the upcoming Cincinnati Masters, where he aims to maintain his optimal form and confidence.
Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Borna Coric Head to Head
The rivalry between Tsitsipas and Coric has been marked by intense battles as evidenced by the even head-to-head record of 3-3. Coric has claimed victories in 3 of their completed matches, showcasing his ability to challenge Tsitsipas on multiple occasions while the Greek ace got one walkover in Rome Masters 2018 with his rival retiring while trailing 4-1.
