Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Milos Raonic – match predictions
As Stefanos Tsitsipas and Milos Raonic go head-to-head for the third time, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Milos Raonic to cover +4.5 games @ 4/6 (1.67)
We would like to point out that Stefanos Tsitsipas and Milos Raonic met twice in the past, and both encounters took place on this surface. Despite being the underdog in both clashes, Raonic defeated Tsitsipas in straight sets on both occasions. To be fair, the Canadian was absent from the tour for almost two years, and just returned two months ago. However, he has shown he’s still got it, beating players like Frances Tiafoe and Miomir Kecmanovic. Considering he has held his own against the Greek player in the past; coupled with the fact that Tsitsipas suffered two straight sets losses in his last three matches, we believe that Milos Raonic will do just enough to cover +4.5 games today.
Three total sets @ 11/8 (2.38)
Next, let’s take a look at the ‘total sets’ market. We’ve already established that these players squared off against each other on two occasions, and both meetings ended in straight sets. It’s also important to point out that this has been the case with Stefanos Tsitsipas’ recent matches. In fact, the Greek player is coming off five consecutive two-setters. Keeping in mind that Milos Raonic has played seven matches since he returned, and four of those ended in minimum sets, we are backing the ‘three total sets’ option.

Can Raonic maintain his 100 percent record against Tsitsipas?
Now that we’ve established our predictions for this match, let’s see how these players performed in the weeks leading up to this competition.
It’s fair to point out that Stefanos Tsitsipas reigned supreme at the Los Cabos Open earlier this month, as he surrendered just one set en route to the title. However, the Greek player has struggled a bit since then, losing three of four matches across singles and doubles. Tsitsipas will set his sights on a second round spot, and he’ll fancy his chances against Milos Raonic.
On the other hand, Milos Raonic last played at the Canadian Open, where he crashed out in the third round at the hands of Mackenzie McDonald. The former Wimbledon finalist will hope to keep his perfect record against Stefanos Tsitsipas intact as he faces the Greek player today.
Tsitsipas vs Raonic head to head
It’s important to point out that Stefanos Tsitsipas and Milos Raonic will be meeting for the third time today. As it stands, the Canadian currently leads the head-to-head between these two, having won both of their previous clashes.
