Michail Pervolarakis is a regular on the ITF tour and has also played in some ATP cups, nearly beating Millman in 2019. He recently won his first ITF event since 2019 in May, though he was a heavy favourite in every match. He more recently played in a challenger last week, where he managed to get through qualifying, only to be beaten by Fratangelo 6-4 6-0. The greek is a very average player and is a typical ITF tour level player.
The story of Li Tu is an interesting one. He was ranked highly when he was younger, making his ITF debut at just 14 years old. He would go on to win his three qualifying matches in his second ITF tournament, only to lose in Round 1. He played in the 2012 Junior Davis Cup alongside Thanasi Kokkinakis. But in 2014, the Australian retired at just 18 years old. Though he couldn’t take tennis out of his life, and became a coach and launched his own business with Ben Milner to help elite juniors which got a lot of success (Charlotte Kempenaers-Pocz was one of them). He started playing tennis again during the UTR Pro Tennis Series in Australian (during peak COVID times). He went on an unbelievable winning streak, winning 27 of his 29 matches in 2020. In 2021 he decided to go pro, and earned a wildcard to the Murray River Open just before the Australian Open, and narrowly lost to Pedro Sousa 6-4 7-6. In the Australian Open, he managed to grab a set of Lopez. He soon after decided to play many ITF events, and has won 7 tournaments since.

Li Tu and Michail Pervolarakis have never faced each other.
I can’t see Pervolarakis troubling Li Tu; the Australian has an excellent game for indoor tennis and should win with ease.
