TennisSection previews the 2022 Astana Open as Stefanos Tsitisipas takes on Novak Djokovic in the final on Sunday, October 9th, 2022.
Will Novak Djokovic get the win? Will Stefanos Tsitisipas pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have arguably the world’s best player taking on a next-gen star. Who will triumph and become the champion at the 2022 Astana Open?
Stefanos Tsitisipas took down Andrey Rublev in 3 sets, a match where he wasn’t expected to win, but managed to pull out all the stops to produce some of his best tennis and move through to the final where he will face Novak Djokovic. In order for him to win this one, he’s going to have to serve at his very best and come to the net often, because he’s not outplaying Djokovic from the baseline. Let’s see if he has what it takes to pose a challenge to the Serbian superstar here in the finals of the 2022 Astana Open.
Novak Djokovic took down Daniil Medvedev, but not in ordinary fashion, after dropping the first set 4-6, he took the second 7-6 (6), before Medvedev was unfortunately forced to retire due to a pulled muscle. While it had the potential to perhaps be the match of the year with the sheer quality of ball striking, it had to come to an end. As Djokovic comes up against Stefanos Tsitsipas, he knows his chances are high to claim the title and walk away the winner at the 2022 Astana Open.
Stefanos Tsitisipas and Novak Djokovic have met 9 times before, with Novak Djokovic leading the head to head 7-2.Djokovic has dominated the Greek throughout their careers, and I don’t expect anything different in this final. Djokovic has played at a really high level this tournament and he won’t be slowing down as he looks to put on yet another magnificent display to march away the winner here at the 2022 Astana Open.
