Cincinnati Open 2021: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Felix Auger-Aliassime Tennis Pick and Prediction

Cincinnati Open 2021: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Felix Auger-Aliassime Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Cincinnati Open as Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Quarter-Finals on Friday, August 20th, 2021.

Will Felix Auger-Aliassime get one of his biggest wins of his career in a while after beating the very high ranked and in form Matteo Berrettini? Will Stefanos Tsitsipas use the momentum gained from that incredible win in the Round of 16 to get himself into the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Cincinnati Open? Both players know each other quite well and they have both beaten each other, but only one will make their way to the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Cincinnati Open. Who will it be?

Felix Auger-Aliassime cruised through his Round of 16 match against the Wimbledon Finalist, Matteo Berrettini, in straight sets 6-4/6-3. This was a good win for Felix because he had lost to Matteo at Wimbledon this year. Although Matteo was a bit rusty here as this was his second match in over a month, Felix Auger-Aliassime showed great composure and he took all the opportunities presented to him, unlike other matches where he sometimes misses these and ends up losing. Felix Auger-Aliassime will be very happy and confident after that win, but he now meets another top 10 opponent and rival in Stefanos Tsitsipas here at the 2021 Cincinnati Open.

Stefanos Tsitsipas came through a very tight and late-night battle against the always tough Italian, Lorenzo Sonego, beating him in 3 sets 5-7/6-3/6-4. Stefanos was able to use his experience and get a vast majority of his first serves in to feel more confident in his service games in the second and third set, and this then allowed him to have some extra freedom when returning. Stefanos will know this was a solid win and he has both positives and negatives to work on, but he now has to be even better than he was in that match as he now meets Felix Auger-Aliassime who has already beaten him before in very similar conditions to the 2021 Cincinnati Open.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Felix Auger-Aliassime have met 6 times before, with Stefanos Tsitsipas leading the head to head 4-2. They always put on entertaining matches. They met 2 times this year where Tsitsipas won both of them. However, the one which was in similar conditions was in Acapulco and Tsitsipas won that one in 3 tight sets. Felix got a very good win under his belt here against Matteo, but I think the strong game which Tsitsipas has been showing consistently over the last month is better than what we have seen from Felix. I do expect a tight match between these two great rivals, and I expect many more tight battles between them in the future. However, Stefanos Tsitsipas will make his way to the Semi-Finals of the 2021 Cincinnati Open by winning this tight and entertaining battle.
