Tsitsipas took a 3-0 lead with a break in the second game. The Greek player sealed the first set 6-1 with his second break at love.  Paire received a visit from the trainer due to an abdominal injury. 

The second set started with a trade of breaks. Tsitsipas earned two consecutive breaks in the fifth and seventh games to close out the second set 6-2. He will face Casper Ruud, who eased past Yoshihito Nishioka 6-1 6-2 with two breaks of serve in each set.
