Hard Rock Stadium Miami, Florida
At the 2021 ATP Miami Open, Stefanos Tsitsipas is set to start his campaign in the second round where he will face Damir Džumhur from Bosnia.
Damir Džumhur entered this tournament via the qualifiers and started the tournament in a strong manner as he defeated Kevin Anderson in straight sets. While Anderson is no longer at his peak, a win over such an accomplished player is still a big result for Damir Džumhur. During the win, Damir Džumhur won 92% of his service games and 2 return games. It has been a modest few months for Damir Džumhur as this is the first tournament he has qualified for since the Australian Open. This is expected to be a tough match for Džumhur as he is playing against the number 2 seed.
Looking at Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek superstar received a bye in the opening round due to his high seeding. Tsitsipas last played at the Mexican Open where he made the final which he lost to Alexander Zverev. It has been a big season for Stefanos Tsitsipas as he has made some deep runs including a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open. This is a big tournament in the ATP calendar so I am expecting Stefanos Tsitsipas to produce a big performance in Miami.
Damir Džumhur and Stefanos Tsitsipas have played each other 4 times in the past with Damir Džumhur winning on 3 occasions and Stefanos Tsitsipas winning only once. While this record is strongly weighted towards Damir Džumhur, it may not be hugely relevant as Tsitsipas has improved into a much better player over the past few seasons.
Free Tennis Pick:
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Stefanos Tsitsipas to win this match and win with some ease. There is a big gap in skill between the two players meaning this should be an easy win for the Greek superstar. I see Tsitsipas winning in straight sets.
