Tsitsipas vs Seppi (By: Iniestaone)
Quarter final match from Sydney between Tsitsipas (#15) and Seppi (#37)
So i watched Seppi's match vs Chardy and it was everything but a solid display from the Italian. He managed to win in the end but he looked very shaky towards the final set and had Chardy been in better shape I think he'd won that. Seppi went on to defeat Klizan in two sets in a match where he did much better on serve than vs Chardy. Against the Frenchman he was serving at 40% first serve in the first set, this went up to 70% vs Klizan.
Tsitsipas is looking solid in Sydney after his 6-3 6-4 win vs Andreozzi, he was serving well overall and was broken once in the second set. He is another player whose game is based on his serve and both his first and second serve were really good agains Andreozzi. He offered him no breakpoints in their first set.
I think Tsitsipas will take a win in two sets here, but the way Seppi has started both of his matches in Sydney makes me think he will challenge Tsitsipas for real in the first and then fall apart in the second. I see no breaks until 5-5 in the first.
