Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Matteo Berrettini Predictions


It’s the world no. 6 vs the world no. 10 as Stefanos Tsitsipas faces Italy’s big-serving Matteo Berrettini. 

Both men have big serves but Berrettini combines a heavy forehand with a slice backhand, while Tsitsipas attacks the net behind his one-handed backhand. Tsitsipas has prevailed in their previous two matches.

  • Stefanos Tsitsipas has only had his serve broken 3 times in 2021
  • Both Stefanos Tsitsipas’s matches with Matteo Berrettini have gone past 39 games
  • Two of Matteo Berrettini’s last three Australian Open matches have gone past 34 games
  • Matteo Berrettini played three tie-break sets in his last match

Head to Head


Stefanos Tsitsipas leads the head-to-head with Matteo Berrettini 2-0.

Both matches have been tight. Tsitsipas won in three tie-break sets (in a best-of-three match) in a US Open qualifying match in 2017, and then 6-7, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 at the Australian Open two years ago.

Stefanos Tsitsipas Form


Tsitsipas had a tough second-round match at the Australian Open against Thanasi Kokkinakis, finding himself taken to three sets.

The Greek player restored order with a quick 6-4, 6-1, 6-1 victory over practice partner Mikael Ymer. Tsitsipas has won over 55% of his second-serve points in all three matches at this year’s Australian Open, where the quick courts suit his attacking game.

Tsitsipas has only lost serve once at the Australian Open, but he has lost both tie-breaks he has played. This could be very significant against Berrettini, an opponent against whom matches often go to tie-breaks.

Matteo Berrettini Form


Italy’s Berrettini broke through to the top echelons when he made the semifinals of the US Open in 2019. 

The world no. 10 warmed up for the Australian Open by leading Italy to the final of the ATP Cup, beating Alex de Minaur and Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets.

All three of Berrettini’s Australian Open matches so far have lasted over two and a half hours, although he has only gone to four sets once, against Machac in the second round. His toughest test came against Karen Khachanov in the third round. 

Berrettini beat Khachanov 7-6(1), 7-6(5), 7-6(5) but he appeared affected by a muscle injury in the later stages of the match.
