Stefanos is having his breakthrough tournament in Melbourne where he has already defeated Roger Federer in the 4th round before reaching the semifinal. The Greek has stated that he is not scared to play tennis legends and he is convinced he can beat Nadal.
Rafa is having a magnificent tournament. The Spanish sensation hasn’t dropped a single set during this event even if some of his opponents were in great form (De Minaur, Berdych, and Tiafoe). The only question mark for Rafa is his fitness as he appeared to wear a big bandage on his abdominal and he refused to answer about that.
H2H Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Rafael Nadal
This will be the 3rd time that Stefanos and Rafa play each other. The H2H is 2-0 for Nadal. The world no.2 demolished the Greek in their first encounter that was in the Barcelona final (6-2 6-1). However, Stefanos was much closer in their following match (the final in Toronto) when Nadal won 6-2 7-6 (4). Tsitsipas said that he got a lot of information from that match.
