This is his sixth appearance in Barcelona, and he has made it to the final three times before. The last one was last year, when he lost 6-3, 6-4 to Carlos Alcaraz. He may get another chance to play for the crown, but first he needs to go over Dusan Lajovic. The Serbian is having an excellent week in Barcelona and the best tournament of the season. He showed high confidence in the previous matches, and he is definitely aware of this opportunity. The Serbian has defeated Tsitsipas twice before, but both of those wins were on grass. Tsitsipas will be dominant on clay and will win this match in straight sets.
