Tsitsipas vs Hijikata Prediction & Pick

All Australian Open expert predictions & picks are made by Tennis Tonic.
- Prediction: Tsitsipas in 3 sets

Tennis Tonic's prediction has much bigger aspirations in mind for Tsitsipas and so do I. The Greece native has advanced to the Australian Open semifinals in each of his last two appearances at the storied tournament. He could use a dominant outing here after a few mishaps in his Round 1 win.

Meanwhile, Hijikata is in unfamiliar territory as this is the first time he has reached the second round of the Australian Open. The 21-year-old came back from two sets down to defeat Yannick Hanfmann on Sunday, but will need to play the best tennis of his life to have a chance at keeping this one close.

Tsitsipas should have no trouble putting Hijikata away with his deadly forehand and elite patience.
