Tsitsipas vs Coric head to head: The two players have met twice in the past and the head-to-head record stands at 1-1. They last met at the US Open in 2020 with Borna Coric winning the contest in a hard-fought encounter that lasted five sets. Although Tsitsipas is a higher ranked player, Coric is brimming with fire at the moment and he can be taken lightly. Another biting contest is one of the cards.
