Stefanos Tsitsipas vs David Goffin Prediction
Stefanos Tsitsipas sealed their slot in the semi-finals of the Open 13 tournament with a straight-sets win over Sergiy Stakhovsky, while David Goffin knocked down sixth-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-2 6-4 in Friday’s final match on court.
Tsitsipas are on an impressive run of form this season, winning both of his games this tournament in straight sets without facing a break point in either performance. David Goffin, on the other hand, are on a struggling run of form this year with a 2-4 ATP singles match record before coming into Marseille. David are in such bad shape this year that he was beaten in the Opening round games to Filip Krajinovic and Gael Monfils at Montpellier and Rotterdam. Although a win over Simon would dramatically improve his confidence moving forward, David Goffin have shown inconsistent results this year. We expect it won’t be easy for Goffin to make further progress in the tournament.
