no doubt reilly will be raining down service bombs, but ttp should be well prepared having withstood the barrages of anderson and isner. this is their 1st encounter.

7-5, 7-6 ttp

Hoping for a Stefanos win but let's face it: it's always a toss-up and everyone is living dangerously with a bot like Opelka on a damn fast surface like that.
He "just" needs to drag it to the TB-s, remain clutch on serve and hope for 1 or 2 missed first serves to get the required mini break. Sort of the same as happened with Jizzner.

If Tsitsipas wins this, i would be convinced he is the real deal (versatility).

Opelka is far more dangerous than Isner though as he does far more in the rallies.

Imagine he wins the whole tournament, going through KAndy, Isner, Opelka, Raonic and then Medvedev in the final. Talk about laying ghosts to rest. That would be some statement.

I think Stefanos has the range of abilities, but it will come down to the few big points

Stef is one of the mentally strongest guys there is. But Opelka seems like a more clutch version of Isner.

I think Stef will get it done here. 7-6, 6-7, 7-6.

Opelka kicker to Tsitsi one hander can be lethal. Also, Tsitsi impatience in rallies can cost him. If he can play the slice game well, rallies should go to Tsitsi. Him in 3 with one TB.

Servebots are the pest of (current) male tennis. Opelka is the most dangerous among them all (nicknamed: the Golem).
Tsitsipas is able to handle the challenge as he has the tools, maybe his ROS is not the best yet, but he has patience and agile court awareness. He will prevail in 3 sets.

Opelka I feel is more dangerous to top guys than Isner since he’s quicker and Isner tends to be strangely conservative in rallies sometimes whereas I don’t see that with Opelka. Let’s clap Tittypas Opelka!
