Head to Head and Predictions

Khachanov and Tsitsipas have faced each other four times in the past. The Greek star leads the H2H record 4-0 by winning all four of his matches against the Russian hard court.

Given that Tsitsipas prefers playing on clay and Khachanov may be slightly drained out from his clash against Pablo Carreno Busta, our prediction is a win in straight sets for Tsitsipas.
