Thiem vs Tsitsipas

Single handed backhand Versus Single handed backhand. Very rare to see the new generation with this shot as all tennis academy´s are teaching for a double grip. Should be more ´safe´, but i do not mind it at all as i love that shot. I tried that shot once but i made a homerun instead, lol. You must be really strong in your arm and wrist. And these two guys are strong indeed. We all remember Wawrinka and Federer of course but these two guys can do also all kind of magic with their backhand.
Thiem a true clay specialist of course. Outgrinding a lot of opponents but in many games i did not like him that much this season on clay. He is 19-5 on clay this year, good of course, but he had some suprising losses.
One of those losses was against this greek Youngster. Really talented kid, very agressive and i like that he is not afraid at all. Remember his ´fight´ with Medvedev.

He is 90-31 on the red surface and 15-5 on clay this year. So he feels comfortable playing on clay obviously. In fact, he beated Thiem in straight sets in Barcelona a few weeks ago and played the final against Nadal. Huge achievement for him in his young career obviously. I do not know if he can beat Thiem again, but i was not expecting these odds at all.
Tsitsipas is a very talented player and i was expecting something around 1.46 for this.
I would not be suprised if this goes to 4 sets. Let’s hope for a 5 set thriller.

Bet : Over 3.5 Sets
