Stefanos Tsitsipas defeats Tiafoe, moves into third round at Tokyo Olympics

·

Greek tennis player, Stefanos Tsitsipas, is through to the next round of the Tokyo Olympics after crushing his American opponent, Frances Tiafoe, in straight sets 6-3, 6-4.

Despite having to save a break point in the opening game, Tsitsipas made a break in the consecutive game to quickly dominate the score 3-0. 

The American managed to find his game, but it wasn’t enough to cause trouble for a superlative Tsitsipas. Without changing the trend, the Greek won the first set 6-3 .

Tiafoe came out determined to equalise the score for the second quarter and that parity would be maintained during the first four games.

The American managed to save break points at 2-4 to extend his life in the game, but Tsitsipas ultimately claimed the victory.

The match was a nice make-up from a few weeks ago during the first round of Wimbledon, when Tsitsipas was defeated by Tiafoe in straight sets.
