  • Stefanos Tsitsipas will be playing his maiden final at the Cincinnati Masters.
  • The World No.4 received a bye to the second round and dominated in his first two matches at Cincinnati by defeating Filip Krajnovic and 13th seed Diego Schwartzman in straight sets.
  • In the third round, he clinched a three-set victory against John Isner to enter the quarterfinal.
  • At the Semifinal, he won the tie-breaker in the first set against Daniil Medvedev and in the second set faced 3-6 loss but came back to win the final set 6-3 to enter the final.
  • Tsitsipas has won the Mallorca Open and Mote Carlo Masters title this year and is eyeing his maiden title win in hard courts.
  • Borna Coric meanwhile, has had a terrific run in the tournament as he defeated three players who were seeded within the Top 10 in the tournament.
  • He started the tournament with a straight set victory against unseeded Lorenzo Musetti in the first round.
  • In the second round he faced Rafael Nadal, who made his return to the circuit after recovering from abdominal injury he sustained during Wimbledon. Nadal’s comeback was cut short by Cric as he defeated the second seed in three sets.
  • In the next round he faced 15th seed Roberto Bautista Agut and defeated the Spaniard in straight sets.
  • In the quarterfinal and semifinal he continued to showcase his dominance against seventh seed Felix Auger Aliassime and Cameron Norrie with straight set victories to enter his maiden final this year.
  • By qualifying for the final, he has become the lowest ranked finalist in the history of the Cincinnati Masters.

Tsitsipas vs Coric Head-to-Head: Both the players have met twice in the past and head-to-head record stands 1-1. They last met at the US Open in 2020 with Borna Coric winning the contest in a nail-biting encounter that lasted for five sets. Though Tsitsipas is a higher ranked player, Coric is oozing fire at the moment and he can’ be taken lightly. Another nail-biting contest is one the cards.
