Ranked no.8, the Greek looks exceptionally confident about his chances on clay that is probably his favorite surface. Tsitsipas reached the 3rd round in Monte Carlo after he defeated an in-form Mikhail Kukushkin 6-3 7-5. Last year Stefanos lost in the 2nd round to David Goffin 7-6 (4) 7-5 after he qualified for the main draw.
The world no.14 is in supreme form in Monte Carlo where he demolished clay court specialist Joao Sousa 6-1 6-1 before defeated Radu Albot 6-1 6-2. Daniil has an 18-6 win-loss record in 2019 after he won the title in Sofia and he reached the final in Brisbane.
Head to head Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Daniil Medvedev
The Greek as always struggled against Medvedev as the head to head record is 3-0 for the Russian. There is a little bit of bad blood between them after the Greek insulted Medvedev at the net after their match in Miami in 2017.
According to bet365, Tsitsipas is the favorite to win the match. See quotes and live streaming (only selected countries - USA excluded, but coming soon)
