Will Stefanos Tsitsipas prove the level of the number 1 seed or will “morning star” Aliassime break all the losses at the ATP Tour finals?
The final tennis judgment of the Rotterdam Open: Morning Star decided to beat Tsitsipas to break the sadness
As originally expected, Stefanos Tsitsipas participated in the final of the Rotterdam Open as the No. 1 seed. However, not always, the Greek player showed high performance, even with 2/4 match he took 3 sets to win (Davidovich Fokina in the first round, Jiri Lehecka in the semi-finals).
Tsitsipas’s inherent problem has always been his focus on the decisive moment, a weakness that is only partially obscured when facing underdogs at ATP 500 level tournaments like the Rotterdam Open.
Either way, the Greek tennis player is just one match away from the crown and tonight, his challenger is Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Similar to Tsitsipas, Aliassime won the right to the final after a comeback defeating No. 2 seed Andrey Rublev. The “morning star” who defeated Roger Federer and was coached by expert Toni Nadal (Rafafa Nadal’s uncle) is making great strides in his career, and at the same time proving that he is capable of breaking into the Next Gen group with Tsitsipas, Medvedev or Zverev.
According to statistics, Aliassime has not won any ATP Tour titles, going through 8 finals with all losses (only less than Julien Benneteau’s record of 10 defeats). Therefore, the 21-year-old “morning star” is more and more determined to defeat Tsitsipas to break through the failure, thereby serving as a launching pad to reach new heights in her career.
In the period of 2019-2021, Tsitsipas faced Aliassime a total of 7 times with a 5-2 victory in favor of the Greek player (all 5 victories came from the last 5 encounters between the two). However, if you continue to enter the game with a subjective mentality, the number 1 seed can pay the price and become the next “victim” of Aliassime.
Tsitsipas upstream to the final of the Rotterdam Open, the defending champion lost back
Different from the last 2 wins with a score of 2-0 against Ilya Ivashka and Alex de Minaur at this year’s Rotterdam Open, No. 1 seed Stefanos Tsitsipas faced an unexpected difficult challenge when facing Jiri. Lehecka in the first semi-final match of the men’s singles ATP 500 tournament in Rotterdam (Netherlands) last night 12/2.
Right in the first set, a surprise happened when Tsitsipas soon lost the break in the 3rd game with a situation of hitting the ball out of the field. Lehecka’s advantage was maintained by the 20-year-old Czech player before this young talent won 6-4 in the first set.
But then, Tsitsipas was able to calm down. The defending runner-up Roland Garros won 2 sets in a row with the scores of 6-4 and 6-2 respectively to complete the comeback with a score of 2-1 before the player who had to go through the Lehecka qualifying round and continued. step forward at this year’s Rotterdam Open. This will be Tsitsipas’ first final in eight months since the fourth-placed player won second place at Roland Garros last June.
Tsitsipas’ opponent in the final of the Rotterdam Open at 21:30 tonight, October 13 (Vietnam time) will be the 3rd seed Felix Auger-Aliassime. In the semi-final 2 just ended, the Canadian “Morning Sao” turned 2nd seed Andrey Rublev from the defending champion to the former ATP 500 champion when he defeated the Russian opponent 6-7 (5)
