Stefanos Tsitsipas into Los Cabos Open quarter-final

·

Stefanos Tsitsipas started his quest for his second straight title in Los Cabos with a forehand, defeating Aleksandar Vukic 6-3, 6-0 to secure his place in the quarter-finals of the Los Cabos Open.

The victory only took 64 minutes for the Greek champion, who won 13 out of 19 points on his second serve (68%), and erased all three break points he faced, while “breaking” Vukic’s serve four times.

Tsitsipas had to erase a double break point in the 1st game of the match, in which he came back from 15-40 to hold his serve. In the 4th game he had break points and he may have initially wasted a triple break point, but he reached the break on his 5th chance and made it 3-1.

He saved one more break point to make it 4-1 and after that there was no turning back for Vukic, world No.72, who couldn’t do much more against Tsitsipas, who found a rhythm and raised the bar a lot.

In the rest of the match after 4-1 the Greek champion lost 5 points from the service line – only 2 in the 2nd set, in which he made 3 consecutive breaks and “cleaned” it very quickly and impressively with 6-0.

Tsitsipas, who remains undefeated in Los Cabos in singles, will play in the quarter-finals with the American Aleksandar Kovacevic.

As with Vukic, it will be his first official meeting with Kovacevic on the tour.
