The 2023 Australian Open is nearing its end with the men's quarterfinal set to begin. One of the next round's matchups features No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas taking on Jiri Lehecka.
Tsitsipas was given a scare by No. 15 Jannik Sinner in the fourth round but eventually managed to walk out with the five-set victory. Meanwhile, Lehecka shocked the tennis world with his four-set win over No. 6 Felix Auger-Aliassime to reach the quarterfinal. Needless to say, fans should expect a good battle here.

Tsitsipas vs Lehecka Prediction & Pick
Jiri Lehecka has had a nice run, but his Cinderella Story comes to an end on Tuesday. Stefanos Tsitsipas has been as consistent as they come in Melbourne, making it to three of the last four Australian Open semifinals. He's also a perfect 8-0 in hard-court matchups this year.
Meanwhile, this is only Lehecka's second-ever Aussie Open appearance and he still has a lot to learn. He's also lost three of his last four sets, so it's not like he's been playing flawlessly, either. Considering how Lehecka has already come up short against Tsitsipas in the past, I'm going with the Greek advancing to the semifinal.
Winner: Stefanos Tsitsipas
Tsitsipas vs Lehecka Best Bet
There's little value that comes with backing Tsitsipas on the moneyline, so I'm looking at set betting for this one. Instead, I'm backing him to win this one in four sets.
After sweeping the first three rounds, Tsitsipas is likely feeling a bit tired after his marathon with Sinner. Meanwhile, Lehecka took a set from Tsitsipas in their previous meeting and even showed that he can hang with some of the world's top talent in his battle with Auger-Aliassime.
Lehecka will give him a challenge at times, but Tsitsipas will escape this in four.
Bet: Stefanos Tsitsipas to Win in Four Sets (+250)
