Betting tips and prediction
Daniil Medvedev has not performed flawlessly at the 2022 Australian Open. His rivals were not strong but he made a lot of mistakes. Stefanos Tsitsipas met Taylor Fritz and Jannik Sinner who are in good form now and beat the second one easily. Also, Stefanos won over Daniil in the last H2H match to nil. Tsitsipas’ stats were much better. I believe that this match will be finished in four or more sets because in spite of the current form, Medvedev is a bit stronger than Tsitsipas. However, I believe that the Greek will qualify for the final because he has performed better in this tournament.
