Stefanos Tsitsipas reaches Madrid Open quarter-finals


Greek tennis star, Stefanos Tsitsipas has advanced to the quarter finals of the Mutua Madrid Open in the early hours of Wednesday morning, according to a report by ATP Tour.

Tsitsipas conceded three service breaks to World No. 42 Bernabe Zapata Miralles but remained in charge throughout thanks to seven service breaks of his own in a 6-3, 6-1 victory in a match that ended at 12.35am.

“It was definitely tricky; he came out pretty strong in some of my service games… it’s never easy playing against Spaniards who know the surface very well,” Tsitsipas said.

“It seemed kind of chaotic in the beginning but then I gave myself time to think and construct my points.”

The two-time Monte-Carlo champion dominated Zapata Miralles serve to a first-serve winning percentage of 38 per cent.

Tsitsipas will next play German tennis player, Jan-Lennard Struff in the quarter final.
