Pospisil started these competitions very well, beating Emil Ruusuvuori (7-6, 6-3) and Hubert Gurkach (6-3, 6-4) in the first two rounds. The Canadian feed flies again. For two matches on his account 23 aces and at least 76% of the goals won in the first serve.
Recently, Vasek scored a great game form. Thanks to his confident game, he visited the Montpellier finals and the second round of Rotterdam. On the account of the Canadian win over Daniil Medvedev, David Goffin and Denis Shapovalov.
This season, Pospisil suddenly began to play on a completely different level. After all, the player began to go to the court with an incredible mood and this is displayed on his results, because he fights on the court for every ball, which has never happened before. Vasek has ceased to depend on the pitch, as he easily and effortlessly competes in protracted strikes. But differences occur, which is only worth his defeat to Ivo Karlovic at the Australian Open, while in three sets.
Now Vasek is progressing and gaining shape, perhaps he will be able to defeat another top 10 tennis player this season, because earlier he had shut down Daniil Medvedev in Rotterdam and played in Montpellier in the final with Gael Monfils.
In 2019, Tsitsipas didn’t lose a single set in Marseille, and in the final he confidently beat Mikhail Kukushkin. It seems that this time Stefanos wants to continue what he started. In the previous round, the Greek beat Mikael Ymer too easily (6-1, 6-3).
Last week, Tsitsipas took part in a tournament in Rotterdam. In the Netherlands, he managed to pass only Hubert Gourcach (6-7, 6-3, 6-1). Already in the next match, he lost to Aljaj Beden (5-7, 4-6).
Tsitsipas is definitely the future leader of the ATP tour. Stefanos stands out not only for his versatility, but also for his attitude to tennis, because he spends all his time in training and does everything possible to just continue to progress. What is his last year’s win at the Final Tournament worth, where he closed all candidates for the title on his way. The representative of Greece already has in his arsenal one of the best one-handed backends, and he is only 21 years old.
In this match, Stefanos will try to dominate, but now he is not in perfect condition and can repeat the fate of Medvedev in Rotterdam.

Pospisil vs Tsitsipas Predictions
In recent matches, Pospisil complains of pain in the knee and if he really acts with microdamage, he will not be able to withstand the high pace of the game against Tsitsipas. In addition, Stefanos played against Ymer at the highest level and will now try to shoot at this tournament.
Tsitsipas has a great welcome. Thanks to this, he can cope with a strong serve. In the draws, the Canadian is inferior to the Greek, so it’s unlikely that the favorite will pass. We believe that Stefanos will get a landslide win.
- Our prediction: Tsitsipas Will Win.
