UTS1 Day 8 preview: Stefanos Tsitsipas “The Greek God” vs Corentin Moutet “The Tornado”
“The Greek God”, Stefanos Tsitsipas, has swept almost all before him at the UTS. Can Corentin Moutet, “The Tornado” sweep him aside?
Not too many people will have known much about Corentin Moutet before the UTS but the Frenchman has made a name for himself in the south of France and now gets the chance for the biggest scalp of all, The Greek God, Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The Tornado has blown into the south of France with his unique blend of touch and drama and Tsitsipas will need to be on his guard if he is not to suffer the upset.
Already rising in the rankings, Moutet has repaid the faith of Patrick Mouratoglou, who had no hesitation bringing him to replace the injured Lucas Pouille and The Tornado will try to repay that trust with another show-stopping performance.
Whether the 21-year-old can do it will also depend on Tsitsipas, who has shown he can focus on the task at hand, whatever’s coming from the other side of the net. The Greek God wants to seal his Final 4 spot so Moutet, who can let his emotions get the better of him, will need to match his legendary fire.
