French Open Semifinals LIVE – Zverev vs Tsitsipas LIVE, Head to Head & LIVE streaming details: Away from the limelight of Rafael Nadal vs Novak Djokovic match, the second semi-final between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev is also a close one to call.
Both men have already won the season-ending ATP Finals in their burgeoning careers, but are yet to land one of the sport’s four biggest prizes.
French Open Semifinals LIVE: Zverev vs Tsitsipas LIVE: Tsitsipas is yet to play in a Grand Slam final, having reached the semi-finals in each of the past three majors but unable to make the next step.
“I don’t think there’s a player out there that thinks they can’t win the tournament,” said Tsitsipas. “Of course I’m playing good, and I think if I keep repeating the process, keep repeating the everyday hustle, for sure there’s going to be a reward.”
On the other hand, Zverev reached the US Open final last year, leading by two sets against Dominic Thiem before the Austrian fought back to win. Therefore both are bidding to play in their first French Open final, with the German already having achieved a career-best run to the last four.
Both men are very comfortable on the red dirt and each claimed Masters titles – Tsitsipas in Monte Carlo and Zverev in Madrid – during the European clay swing coming into Roland Garros.
Zverev, long touted for major success, says he has started to put less pressure on himself in the biggest tournaments. “I was not very patient with myself, which I feel like now maybe I have learned how to deal with the situation a little bit better,” he said. “I’m maybe a little bit calmer at the tournaments. But the end goal hasn’t changed.”
French Open Semifinals LIVE: Zverev vs Tsitsipas LIVE: Despite being seeded sixth, Alexander Zverev entered the 2021 French Open as the favorite in the third quarter of the draw. He seemed to be heading for an early exit when he lost the first two sets of his opening-round encounter against Oscar Otte.
Stefanos Tsitispas also commenced his French Open 2021 battle as the favorite from his quarter of the draw. The 22-year-old is having the best season of his career and is currently heading the ATP Race to Turin rankings.
