Goffin vs Tsitsipas by Demogorgon
This match should be way closer than the odds show and the main difference between those players is Goffin huge experience in ATP latter stages.
Its just the first ATP Quarter-finals for Tsitsipas and that is a great achievement already for the young Greek player. He was amazing ast season, even though he participated mainly on Challengers, he managed to win a total of 7 tittles in 11 finals! He is now at 122 place in the rank, with 466 points witha huge chance of breaking into the top 100 if he manages to reach the finals, which is a long shot but not impossible. There is definitely motivation on his side and he has actual chances agaisnt Goffin here.
Now, the thing is that Tsitsipas will find it extremely tough to cope with Goffin in long rallies and unforced errors will be an big issue, though he has a powerful long serve which will he will use in order to get easy points and drive the sets to tie breakers, where he will have a great chance against Goffin. It wont be easy to serve constantly well but i think he will manage to go the distance in at least one set, as Goffin has not been a great returner either.
Goffin on the other hand is in top form right now, he won the ATP Tours of Shenzen and Tokyo the last couple of months, while he has lost just one of his last 10 games (against Simon) lately. He is the top seed in this tournament, as he was last season as well, where he got knocked out in the semi-finals against Schwartzman and if he manages to get past Tsitsipas, he will once more have to face Schwartzman is the semi-finals.
Things are clear for Goffin here, as he has to find ways to return the first serves of Tsitsipas and then try to push him on his backhand, which is Tsitsipas main weakness and ofcourse approach the net as much as possible, though Goffin likes to stay in the baseline and hit powerful strokes, which won't fit well here against quite a similar player, so even though Goffin is far more experienced, this match will be very close and he knows it.
I think that both players will hold their serves easily or not, and this match will have at least one tie break, so i find a lot of value at those odds!
