Stefanos Tsitsipas makes comeback to progress to Australian Open second round


Stefanos Tsitsipas overcame the obstacle of Zizou Bergs (5-7, 6-1, 6-1, 6-3) to progress to the second round of the Australian Open today.

Tsitsipas managed to beat the Belgian in 3 hours, but it’s clear he is still not 100% ready for the tournament, despite his comfortable upset.

Slower in his movements, he changed his stance on his serve because of his wrist and his shots lacked the momentum we are used to. 

After the second set Bergs lost easily, mainly because he was completely drained, but also because he became too predictable with his insistence on drop shots.

The next opponent for Tsitsipas in the Australian Open second round will be either Jordan Thompson or Aleksandar Vukic.
