TennisSection previews the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as Stefanos Tsitsipas (4) takes on Philipp Kohlschreiber in the Round of 64 on Sunday, July 25th, 2021.
Will the veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber get one of the biggest wins of his career under his belt by upsetting the high ranked Stefanos Tsitsipas? Will Stefanos Tsitsipas improve on his level he showed over the last month and show us the tennis which he played with for the first half of 2021? This will be a very entertaining match for sure, but only one will make their way to the Round of 32 of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Who will it be?
Philipp Kohlschreiber is getting old now but he still has a very good game, which has allowed him recently to win some matches which we did not expect him to. Philipp Kohlschreiber is one of the best returners when he is at his best, having won 475 matches throughout his career, whilst winning 8 titles along the way. Kohlschreiber would have preferred an easier opponent here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics as he knows that Stefanos Tsitsipas is a very tough opponent to beat, especially in big tournaments nowadays. Can Kohlschreiber show us his tennis of old as he aims to cause the upset?
Stefanos Tsitsipas aims to bounce back from a tough month with him losing his first match at Wimbledon and then losing in his second match in Hamburg a couple weeks ago. Stefanos Tsitsipas knows he is one of the best players in the world and he can beat anyone and everyone on his day. Stefanos Tsitsipas will come out here ready to show us that he is still in form and he will be determined to bring glory to Greece. However, he meets an experienced opponent in Philipp Kohlschreiber who can definitely keep things tight here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Stefanos Tsitsipas and Philipp Kohlschreiber have met 2 times before, with Stefanos Tsitsipas leading the head to head 2-0. They have not met since 2018, and since then Tsitsipas has become a different beast. Tsitsipas is one of the best players in the world, being able to beat anyone and everyone on his day. Philipp only has one or two more years on the ATP Tour and he does not even play in big tournaments. Stefanos Tsitsipas will want to bounce back from a tough month and get himself in the discussion for the Gold Medal here at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
