In one of the matches of the second round of the US Open, Stefanos Tsitsipas will face Maxim Cressy. What will this match be like for the Greek tennis player? – read our forecast.
Tsitsipas made it to the second round of the competition without any problems. In the first match of the tournament, he was opposed by the experienced Spaniard Ramos. Albert was unable to offer any resistance to the favorite. As a result, Stefanos won 6-2, 6-1, 6-1.
Note that the representative of Greece is perfectly ready for the Major. Last week he performed well at the Masters in New York, where he beat Kevin Anderson (6-1, 6-3) and John Isner (7-6, 7-6). In the quarterfinals Tsitsipas passed Rayleigh Opelku, the American refused to continue the fight with the score 6-5 in his favor.
Cressy probably would not have made it into the main draw of US Open if the organizers had not provided him with a wild card. Moreover, Maxim was lucky with the draw, as the Slovak tennis player Kovalik was his opponent. Josef mostly prefers to play on clay, so it’s not surprising that the American managed to beat him (6-1, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4).
It is worth noting that last year Cressy took part in qualifying for this Major. But there he did not manage to pass even one round. In the opening match, he lost to Nicolas May (6-3, 5-7, 1-6).
This will be the first face-to-face meeting between these tennis players.
In the previous match, Cressy’s first serve was 49%. He also made 15 double faults.
In the match with Ramos, Tsitsipas has five double faults. First serve passability 61%.
Tsitsipas won 23 matches this season. Cressy is six.
In this meeting, Cressy has no chance. The American plays primitive tennis. His tactic is to feed hard and run towards the net. In the confrontation with Kovalik, such a number passed, but Tsitsipas would simply destroy him. Running to the net Maxim will be a convenient target for a Greek who will not disdain to shoot an opponent.
We think that this fight will end too quickly, and the final total of 28 games is too much for a player like Cressy. Moreover, we believe that Cressy will not win more than two games in the first set. If Ramos failed to do this, then the American is unlikely to succeed.
