Tsitsipas vs Etcheverry Monte Carlo 2024 Match Preview and Prediction

tennis predictions

Two-time champion Stefanos Tsitsipas will take to the court on Wednesday for his second match in Monte Carlo, hoping to move one step closer to regaining the title he earned in 2021 and 2022. He will play Tomas Martin Etcheverry for a spot in round three, where a resurgent Alexander Zverev will be waiting.

With an 84.2% win record at this event currently, the Greek will be happy to return after struggling for form elsewhere. He came into this event as the No.12 seed, having been second seed last year. It was a stress-free opener for him here, having led 6-3 3-2 against Laslo Djere before the Serbian retired. “Things are looking good. I am hoping to go the same way,” Tsitsipas said. “I really enjoyed getting a better consistency on my serve towards the end. I hope to keep mixing it up and coming up with fun plays.”

Etcheverry will be happy with his 2024 so far, having gone 8-8 so far. That includes a semi final in Houston last time out while he navigated a tricky clash with Nicolas Jarry to move into round two here. He saved 8 of 9 break points in the 6-4 7-5 win over the Chilean, giving the French Open quarter finalist a boost as he seeks to re-enter the Top 30.

With Tsitsipas’s record here, it’s hard to go against him even with his struggles of this year. The conditions are perfect for him here with the Greek a very strong player on clay at his best. Etcheverry has the game to spring a shock but a loss like this here for Tsitsipas would suggest worries about his game are bigger than first thought.
