I've been waiting for this match - I remember watching their Jr USO semifinal a few years ago. Honestly, I'm not surprised by FAA being good, but I completely misjudged Tsitsipas - thought his backhand would be a liability at the highest level based on what I saw during that match.

The first of hopefully many pro matches in their careers. Felix is making his jump a year earlier than Stefanos, who finished his teens on that steep upward trajectory as he turned 20 last August. This 2R win could be the first step in a vault inside top 50 for Félix...already three guys just a few slots above him out in 1R. A win would mean a lot but I think Tsits is a step too far for him right now. Tsits in two tight sets.

Could go either way. I was impressed with Felix in his first match though and I think he definitely has the potential to win this. Tsitsipas has the benefit of top level matches recently though and on hard court I think he has a slight edge. I'll go with the Greek in 3 tight sets. I'm a fan of both.

I've been impressed by FAA lately. I think he has much more potential overall than Tsitsipas.

As for this match, Tsitsipas was hot and cold lately with his form, so I'm going with FAA in 2 tight sets.

FAA forehand is going to be a huge weapon in the years to come; he's got an extremely lively wrist. Honestly one of the best forehand mechanics I've seen in a long while.

This is gonna be such a huge rivalry in the next 10 years. Quite possibly the Fedal of this generation. Tsitsipas in 2.

I'm not an enormous fan of Stefanos, but one has to admit he has a lot of talent. I think it's impossible to say at this early stage who has more potential. This past year, Stefanos has been sensational and he shows no signs of slowing down.

Enormous fan of Felix, not so much of Stefanos. But yeah both talented but my heart wants Felix.

Love hold Stefanos.
Love hold Felix.
