Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas are set to renew their rivalry when the duo meet in the semi-finals of the 2022 Paris Masters on Saturday.
Djokovic kicked off his title defense with straight sets wins over Maxime Cressy and Karen Khachanov. Up against Lorenzo Musetti in the quarter-finals, he produced another impressive performance to defeat the Italian 6-0, 6-3 and claim his 12th consecutive victory.
Tsitsipas, meanwhile, knocked out Dan Evans and Corentin Moutet to the last eight, where he took on Tommy Paul. The American defeated a trio of Spaniards to reach this stage, including Rafael Nadal. However, he was no match for the world No.5, who ended up winning 6-2, 6-4 on the night.
This marks Tsitsipas’ first semi-final appearance in Paris. Djokovic, on the other hand, is the most decorated player in the tournament’s history and is gunning for his seventh title here. The pair’s rivalry has turned quite lopsided now. The Greek held the upper hand in the opening stages as he led 2-1, but the former world No. 1 has pulled ahead by winning seven games in a row to lead 8-2.
Defeating Djokovic in his own backyard will be an uphill battle for Tsitsipas, but he has the potential to do so if he plays his best tennis. The two have had some entertaining matches over the years, and this one could be another epic based on how they’ve played here so far. On that note, here are the details regarding their semifinal matchup:
