World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas faces Andrey Rublev for a place in the Roland Garros semi-finals. Thanks to his recent win in the championship match at Hamburg two weeks ago, the Russian has built a 2-1 lead in the head-to-head series.

The Greek gave huge glimpses of entertaining tennis. His impeccable footwork brought him to shine in difficult conditions, helped by his aggressive ball-striking.

In his tense campaign, the Russian continued to use his forehand to make life harder for his opponents. Although his patience, not his best quality when he struggles to hit through his opponents, will be severely tested.

Tsitsipas served efficiently and consistently throughout the tournament and his first-serve points rate could play a key role in the upcoming match. Rublev has a strong return, but he has fewer patterns on serve and return and a dangerous tendency to give away free points.

Prediction: Rublev in four sets.

Novak Djokovic [1] v Pablo Carreno [17] | H2H: Djokovic leads 3-1

Novak Djokovic will be back on court against Pablo Carreno Busta after the Serbian’s disqualification during their US Open fourth round clash last month.

Coming off a record-breaking 36th Masters 1000 title in Rome, in Paris Djokovic became the second player after 20-time Major winner Roger Federer to have registered at least 70 wins at all the four Slams.

Djokovic can predictably open up the court, mixing angled groundstrokes and sudden drop shots. The Spaniard, despite his solid game, is unlikely to counter that pressure in a best-of-five sets match.

Prediction: Djokovic in straight sets.
