ATP Finals 2021: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Andrey Rublev Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 ATP Finals as Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on Andrey Rublev in the Round Robin stage on Monday, November 15th, 2021.

Will former champion Stefanos Tsitsipas pick up the win? Or will Andrey Rublev rekindle his early season form? Tsitsipas’ shoulder injury leaves a huge question mark on his title aspirations this week. While Rublev has not been in great form in the second half of the year. Who will get his Nitto ATP Finals campaign off to a winning start?

Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of four former champions at the ATP Finals. Tsitsipas’ success in 2018 heralded a new era in men’s tennis, having captured the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals the year before. The Greek has gone on to headline more finals at the biggest tournaments, including Masters 1000s and his first Grand Slam final at the French Open. Tsitsipas won his maiden ATP Masters title on the clay courts of Monte Carlo this year, beating Andrey Rublev in the final. Rublev also lost to Tsitsipas in last year’s gripping three-setter at the ATP Finals. The Russian double-faulted on match point to hand the initiative to the Greek who would go on to win in the match and consequently eliminate the 24-year-old.

While Andrey Rublev failed to get out of the group in last year’s edition of the ATP Finals, he might like his chances of impressing this time. Rublev stats against Stefanos Tsitsipas who might be nursing an injury from last week’s Paris Masters. And aside from that, he has to contend with Casper Ruud – the debutant whom he has beaten five times without reply in their head-to-head. The Russian, however, comes to Turin following a spate of poor results in the past month. He hasn’t won back-to-back matches since the start of October and has only won two matches from his last seven.

Stefanos Tsitsipas leads Andrey Rublev 4-3 in their head-to-head. However, they have split wins in two meetings this season. Rublev won a tight two-setter in the Rotterdam semifinals, before the Greek avenged the loss in the Monte Carlo final. Tsitsipas has spoken of feeling slightly less pain in practice in the past few days after retiring from the Paris Masters with a shoulder injury. Rublev, on the other hand, is woefully out of form. However, if Tsitsipas’ general body coordination is not functioning due to his injury troubles, the Russian might overwhelm him with his aggressive strokes.
