Match Predict – Handicap (+6) for Lehecka
Lehecka has made good progress. Victory over Auger Aliassime in the 1/8 final should give him extra confidence. We believe that Jiri is unlikely to be easy prey for Tsitsipas in the upcoming encounter. The two men met each other in Rotterdam last year and it was a tightly fought match. We expect that Lehecka will be able to clinch a plus handicap in his next encounter with Tsitsipas.
Total Games Over 34
The tennis players met each other not too long ago. Last season, they played a match in a tournament in Rotterdam. That match was tightly fought and ended in three sets. We expect the upcoming match to be a topsy-turvy one as well.
Preliminary review and pre-match prediction for Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Jiri Lehecka
Tsitsipas played his first really tough match of the tournament last Sunday.
Stef barely beat Jannik Sinner (6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3).
After the second set, the situation seemed to be under control, but at some point, Jannik began to play and Stef only came to his senses by the start of the fifth set.
Remarkably, Sinner converted 1 of 10 break points in the third set, 1 of 8 in the fourth and he had no break points in the deciding set. Tsitsipas had a great end to the match, although it looked like he had already collapsed psychologically by that point.
Tsitsipas reached the semi-finals in Melbourne in 2021 and 2022. On both occasions, he was stopped by Daniil Medvedev, who had already finished his fight for the title.
Tsitsipas has won his last 11 consecutive hard-court matches.

Lehecka, meanwhile, was the main opener at the Australian Open. Jiri, who made his debut in the top 100 last season, reached the quarter-finals at the Grand Slam for the first time. Moreover, he had not previously won at this level.
Jiri has already had three surprises at this tournament.
In the first round, he triumphed over Borna Coric (6-3, 6-3, 6-3).
In the third round, Lehecka stopped Cameron Norrie (6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4), despite losing 1-2 in the sets.
In the fourth round, Lehecka stopped Felix Auger Aliassime (4-6, 6-3, 7-6, 7-6).
Interestingly, after the first set, Felix did not have a single break point.
According to Lehecka, he felt confident in his abilities after beating Alexander Zverev at the United Cup. Since then he has really been playing at least top-20 level.
Lehecka has won his last five matches in a row on the Australian courts.
