Tsitsipas – Alcaraz tip French Open 04.06.2024

French Open, quarter-finals, Tuesday, 04.06.2024

Wherever Carlos Alcaraz competes, he is always the top favorite! At this French Open, too, we are experiencing the phenomenon that the Spaniard is most likely to win the title.

The youngster will face one of his favorite opponents in the quarter-finals – but he himself has been in the top 10 for years! The bookmakers don’t really care, because Alcaraz is once again ahead.

In my Tsitsipas Alcaraz tip, I will now try to find out whether there could be a surprise after all. I’ll also tell you why I agree with the bookies, but at the same time also give the underdog a set!

He is currently “only” number 3 in the world and yet the bookies are of the opinion that Carlos Alcaraz is the most likely to win the second major of 2024! If he does, it will be his first Grand Slam on clay.

A year ago, Alcaraz lost in the semi-finals to Novak Djokovic, and now he has to reach the round of the top four first. His performances in Paris so far have been strong, underlining his role as favorite.

After a 6-1, 6-2, 6-1 opening set against J.J. Wolf, he only briefly had a few problems against Jesper de Jong, ultimately winning in four sets 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 6-2. In rounds 3 and 4, his opponents then became a little more challenging.

First, Alcaraz faced Sebastian Korda, but instead of a close duel at eye level, the Spaniard quickly secured a 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 win. Things were even quicker against Felix Auger-Aliassime

Although the Canadian had recovered in recent months, he couldn’t do anything at all against Alcaraz. The favorite pulled away 6-3, 6-1, 6-1 and was able to save important energy once again.

Winning points on the first serve? The Spaniard didn’t get close to 80% yet. At 1.83m, he is not one of those players who are at the top of their game when serving anyway.

But he doesn’t usually have to be, because his solid, often error-free game wears down his opponents. Stefanos Tsitsipas too? If we look at the direct comparison, we can only answer this question with a clear “yes”.

There have been five duels between the two stars, and all five have gone to Alcaraz! Funnily enough, the two also met in the quarter-finals of Roland Garros last year, with the Spaniard winning 6-2, 6-1, 7-6

The odds for Tuesday are an average of 1.20 to 4.00, which will certainly also have to do with the direct comparison. By the way, in addition to the best tennis bets, you can already take a look at all the European Championship bonus offers.

Stefanos Tsitsipas of course knows that he has lost all his matches against Carlos Alcaraz. What encourages the Greek that he could finally achieve his first success? His own performances are certainly strong enough.

He was in good form early on in the clay court season, winning one title and reaching another final. The 25-year-old is very fond of the French Open, and three years ago he lost the final to Novak Djokovic despite leading 2-0.

This year, he started the tournament with a 7-6, 6-4, 6-1 win over Marton Fucsovics and won 6-3, 6-2, 6-7, 6-4 against Daniel Altmaier shortly afterwards. He then recorded another clean sweep with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-1 win against Zhang Zhizhen

So he didn’t have to play the really tough opponents, and that wasn’t to change in the round of 16. Matteo Arnaldi made life difficult for Tsitsipas, but in the end the favorite won 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-2.

The Greek conceded a total of four breaks against himself, but he only converted five of his 21 chances in the match against Arnaldi. But will Tsitsipas now be able to cope with the double and triple burden?

The world number 9 is not only competing in singles, but also wants to go far in both doubles and mixed doubles! Not everyone thinks that this balancing act will provide the necessary concentration in the singles competition

My Tsitsipas Alcaraz tip

Stefanos Tsitsipas wants to finally break his Alcaraz curse! He has lost all his matches against the Spaniard and will get another chance on Tuesday. He is definitely in good form on clay, but so is his opponent.

Both are similarly strong in Paris, but Alcaraz had the stronger competition in my opinion. All in all, I think the youngster is ahead, but I don’t think he can sweep Tsitsipas off the court. My tip is therefore:

Alcaraz wins in four or five sets!
