Stefanos Tsitsipas books spot in French Open quarter-final


Stefanos Tsitsipas eased past Austrian qualifier Sebastian Ofner 7-5, 6-3, 6-0 to book his place in the French Open quarter-finals on Sunday.

The Greek fifth seed battled back from an early break to wrap up the first set and surged through the next.

In the third set, Ofner found himself trailing 5-0, unable to deal with the Tsitsipas tsunami. Tsitsipas sealed the victory on serve.

Tsitsipas will next face his biggest test when he meets world number one Carlos Alcaraz in the last eight. The Greek has lost all four meetings with Alcaraz.

“The clash we’ve been all waiting for,” Tsitsipas said in his post-match interview. “I think everyone was expecting it, weren’t they? And it’s here. It’s game on.”
