MATCH PREVIEW

Great Final Lies Ahead of Us

There have been a few upsets this week but we've got Monte Carlo Masters final to savour. Fourth seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas takes on Andrey Rublev who is the fifth seed.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is fifth in the world rankings and will stay in that place even if winning this title. He's closing in on world number four Dominic Thiem though. A win over Rublev would see him overtake the Russian as the number one in the ATP Tour Race to Milan.

The Greek player has had a great year with four semi-finals and this is his second final of 2021. His previous one ended in a defeat by Alexander Zverev. He'll be hoping to land this title even more as he's now resident in Monte Carlo. Tsitsipas hasn't won an ATP Tour title since winning a tournament in France in February 2020. He's played in three final since then, losing them all. One was a clay court tournament in Hamburg last year, where he lost to a certain Andrey Rublev. 

Tsitsipas put an end to the run of Daniel Evans on Saturday beating the British player 6-2 6-1. That was his 21st win in 26 singles matches this season. Before his win over Evans, Tsitsipas had beaten Aslan Karatsev, Cristian Garin and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. He is yet to drop a set in this tournament, though his win over Fokina only saw one set played before his opponent retired.

He has had six previous matches against Andrey Rublev and they are tied at 3-3. Their most recent match was in Rotterdam where Rublev won in straight sets in the semi-final. On clay, they have met twice and it's 1-1. Rublev won that final in Hamburg but Tsitsipas beat him in straight sets in the 2020 French Open quarter final. Only two of the six previous meetings have ended in a straight sets win.

Ultra-Consistent Rublev

Andrey Rublev began the week ranked eighth in the world, six places higher than he was this time last year. After his run to this final, he'll be up to seven on the next list, going above Roger Federer. A win in this final will take him above Alexander Zverev into sixth.  As mentioned, he's top of the tree in the Race to Milan replacing London for the Tour finals event. It's been a massive year for Rublev and a win on Sunday will be his 25th singles win of the year.

Rublev beat Rafael Nadal in the quarter finals on Friday. A day later he was back on court and beat Casper Ruud 6-3 7-5 in the last four. It's not a surprise that he's top of the rankings in terms of points earned in 2021. His year began winning the ATP Cup with Russia, a tournament that does see players gaining points. Since then, his form reads: QF, W, SF, SF, SF and now this final in Monte Carlo. His win came in Rotterdam and he beat Tsitsipas in the semi-final. 

The Russian has won two previous ATP tournaments on clay. This is by far his best performance in Monte Carlo, failing to get past the second round before this week. This is the first time that he's made the final of a Masters event. A win over Tsitsipas would be a major step forward for him, especially with the French Open not too far away.

This is a tough match to call with both players in such good form. A bet on a three-set final looks the safest one to make. As for the winner? Tsitsipas hasn't lost a set yet and would love to win in Monte Carlo, go for him to beat Rublev.
