Dimitrov vs Tipsarevic (By: Iniestaone)
First round match from Australian Open between Dimitrov (#21) and Tipsarevic (unranked)
So here are some great news: Tipsarevic is back after missing out 2018 completely. He has had injury problems with his leg and its kept him away from tennis for quite some time but he is a huge fighter and he isn't one of the players who know they are injured but still join tournaments for the first round payoff and then retire. I believe with him taking this step back to tennis that he means well and from what I can see on his social media he is doing a lot better fitness wise at the moment than in a very long time. Aside from that, we know he has the general quality to perform well against most top 50 players.
Dimitrov only has three matches played this season, all of them in Brisbane, he defeated Nishioka and Millman easily as expected and then was knocked out by Nishikori 5-7 5-7. Its not like him to start Australian Open with big first set wins, he eases into the matches and with Tipsarevic being so eager to get back on court I think this first set will cross the 9.5 games line. Whatever happens after remains to be seen and depends a lot on Tipsarevic's fitness, and when I say that mean it depends on by how big of a margin Dimitrov will win of course because there is hardly a chance Tipsarevic can win this.
