We are looking at this quarter final match from Hamburg for our tennis betting tips on Friday.

It features Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas who is the headline act of the entire draw and the one expected to lift the title on the weekend.

He faces sixth seed Filip Krajinovic in what should be an engaging match for a place in the final four.

Stefanos Tsitsipas Preview – Tsitsipas to move ahead?

In the opening round of this Hamburg tournament, Stefanos Tsitsipas was up against Germany’s Dominik Koepfer.

Tsitsipas got the job done in straight sets after a tight first set had been settled on a tie-break.

He needed that win as well.

Since reaching the final of the French Open in June, results have not gone the Greek player’s way.

Tsitsipas had lost in the first round of his following two tournaments, one of them at Wimbledon.

His first-round exit against Frances Tiafoe at SW19 was a shock upset.

It happened in straight sets as well.

But the return to clay and in a less competitive tournament gives the Greek star a chance to bounce back.

In the match tonight for this fixture, Tsitsipas is 1/7 odds-on in tennis betting* (odds taken 23:12 GMT on 14th July 2021)

Our betting prediction:
Tsitsipas 2-1 set betting

Those are not tennis odds to get too excited about, of course, so we will dig deeper for better.

Tsitsipas and Krajinovic have met twice before and both meetings have one the way of Tsitsipas.

The two previous meetings happened in 2019 and one of them was on clay. That was at the 2019 French Open, Tsitsipas winning 3-1.

He hasn’t been rock solid in defence since the French Open, that long emotional run to the final, probably taking something out of him.

A Tsitsipas 2-1 set betting option is at 10/3 for this one* (odds taken 23:12 GMT on 14th July 2021).

We do expect him to find a way through to the semi-finals.


Filip Krajinovic Preview – Krajinovic has been digging deep

This has been an entertaining tournament for Filip Krajinovic in Hamburg so far.

His two matches have both gone the distance against German opposition in Daniel Atlmaier and Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Do we think that he is capable of an upset in this one?

Probably not looking at the Grand Scheme of things.

Since a round of sixteen place earned at Monte Carlo in mid-April, form hasn’t been there from the Serbian player.

Before heading to Hamburg for this week’s action, Krajniovic’s form has read one victory in a run of six matches.

That’s not likely going to be good enough to bring down the top seed in this draw.

In the match outright for tennis betting, Filip Krajinovic is a quote of 9/2 to produce the victory* (odds taken 23:12 GMT on 14th July 2021).

Filip Krajinovic’s season record was 8/10 win/loss after his short Wimbledon campaign.

Looking at his two previous attempts at Hamburg, there has been a little show of form from Krajinovic.

On his debut in 2014, he came from the first qualifying round to reach the round sixteen where injury stopped him.

Then on a return in 2019, he reached this quarter final stage. But he did put up a decent fight then against Alexander Zverev.

A Krajinovic +4.5 Games Handicap is at a quote of 11/8 for tennis betting* (odds taken 23:12 GMT on 14th July 2021).


Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Filip Krajinovic Betting Advice

We see this match in Hamburg going the way of the favourite, Stefanos Tsitsipas.

It doesn’t necessarily look as if it is going to be a totally straightforward breeze for him.

That Grand Slam final in Paris appeared to take something out of Tsitsipas, who has had a good season.

The Tsitsipas 2-1 set betting option may be worth a play at 10/3* (odds taken 23:12 GMT on 14th July 2021).
