There are strong signs that Stefanos Tsitsipas is starting to find his feet on the clay. He has the natural game for the surface.

He now finds himself in the quarter finals of the French Open for the first time. The 5th seed will be taking on 13th seed Andrey Rublev for a spot in the final four.

Also in the same boat is Rublev who has made the quarter final draw for the first time at the Grand Slam event.

Andrey Rublev Preview – Rublev looks up for the fight

It hasn’t been a campaign where Andrey Rublev has been cruising through the rounds. Far from it actually.

In just one of his four matches played at Roland Garros so far, Rublev has progressed from in straight sets.

He looked on his way out of the first round when he was 2-0 down against Sam Querrey before launching a huge comeback.

Then it was a 3-1 win in the second round, before landing his straight-sets win over Kevin Anderson in the third.

The Russian then had to come from behind aginas in the fourth round having dropped the opening set to Marton Fuucsovics, Rublev going on to win 3-1 in a very tight match.

So Rublev has been scrapping and this is another big moment in the calendar year for the 22-year-old.

That’s because he reached the quarterfinals of the recent US Open.

Our betting prediction:
Tsitipas 3-1 Set Betting

Bet at Boylesports

(odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October)


Andrey Rublev is the 13/10 underdog for this quarter final match* (odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October).

Honestly the way he has gone about this tournament with grit, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him nick a set.

Therefore, with that in mind for French Open tennis betting a Stefanos Tsitsipas 3-1 correct score option is at 10/3* (odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October).


Stefanos Tsitsipas Preview – Greek star raising his game on clay

This has been another year of progress at the French Open for Greek player Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Since a first round exit on his debut in 2017, he has gone one round better in each consecutive year.

This is just the second time overall in his career that he has been to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam.

The previous occasion was when he reached the semi’s at the 2019 Australian Open.

In the match outright, Tsitsipas is the 8/13 odds-on favourite* (odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October).

This will be his sixth match against Rublev and Tsitispas is narrowly down 2-3 in the head to head.

The last time that the two 22-year-olds met was very recently at the Hamburg Open Final on Clay. It was Rublev who took the win there in three sets.

In the five previous meetings, Rublev and Tsitsipas have alternated wins. So it would be the turn of the Greek player next if the trend continues.

Stefanos Tsitsipas fell short at the US Open recently, slipping out in the third round against Borna Coric in a surprise upset.

Then a loss in his first match at the Italian Open on clay, aginats Jannik Sinner didn’t bode well for his form.

But then he got it together with a run to the finals of the Hamburg Open where he lost in three sets of the Russian.

We can see this being another wonderfully competitive fight between the two played and a Stefanos Tsitsipas -2.5 Games Handicap is at 4/5 odds* (odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October).

Whatever the outcome, we don’t see this just being three sets.


Andrey Rublev vs Stefanos Tsitsipas Betting Advice

There is a question mark of Rublev because of the number of sets that he has already dropped at the French Open 2020.

He has certainly faced some struggles and if he gets behind against Tsitsipas it is not going to be so easy for him to get back into it.

So we are going to be siding with Tsitiatps for a French Open Tennis Betting option in this match, by taking the 3-1 set betting option at 10/3* (odds taken 23:51 GMT, Tuesday, 6th October).
