Greek tennis star, Stefanos Tsitsipas has defeated 21-year-old Italian tennis player Flavio Cobolli, making his way to the quarter finals of the Mexican Open in Acapulco.

Tsitsipas managed to score 6-3, 7-6 (6) after two hours of battle, and secured his place in the next round of the Mexican Open.

In the 1st set, Tsitsipas took an early lead with a break for 4-1. He also had opportunities for the double break and although he did not use them, he saved 2 break points in the 7th game to make it 5-2. He held his serve much more easily in the 9th game, to make it 6-3 and close the set.

In the 2nd set, despite breaking at a key point to go ahead at 5-4, he was unable to close out the match on his serve, with Cobolli responding with his first break of the night and levelling at 5-5.

This will be Tsitsipas’ 70th career quarter final. He will now be going to the quarter-finals in Acapulco against last year’s champion, Alex De Minaur.
