Djokovic vs Tsitsipas: Head-to-head

Novak Djokovic leads Stefanos Tsitsipas 11-2 in their 13 meetings on the ATP Tour, a head to head advantage that includes two meetings in Grand Slam finals.

The first came in the 2021 Roland-Garros final, when the Serb came back from two sets to love down to win 6-7, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

The second came at the Australian Open in January 2023, when Djokovic won in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 7-5). That win was Djokovic’s 10th in a row over Tsitsipas, gave him a record-extending 10th Australian Open title, a 22nd Grand Slam title and ensured that he – and not Tsitsipas – held the No 1 ranking.

A complete list of their matches is available on the ATP website.
