Hurkacz took advantage of an opening break early in the set and took the lead at 3-1. In contrast to the first match, Bublik was unable to stop the Polish’s serve this time. The 25-year-old held his advantage throughout the game to prevail the set 6-4 7-4, 4-4.
With his history encounters with Hurkacz The Greek will be highly positive about the chances he has. The last four games, which were played on hard courts in the indoors which were triumphant for Tsitsipas. Their matches, on contrary, are highly disputated and often very competitive. However, with one exception in which the outcome of eight of their games were decided by three sets. These four championships Tsitsipas has won on indoor courts prove that he is a good player in these conditions.
Although both of them have consistently good performance this week at the tournament however, the Greek player is the favorite to win since he is better and has more experience than the Pole.
