Stefanos Tsitsipas reaches Barcelona Open quarter finals


Greek tennis star, Stefanos Tsitsipas, reached the quarter finals of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell on Thursday night when he defeated Canadian Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 6-2.

Tsitsipas, a two-time Barcelona Open finalist, demonstrated great footwork to dictate the match on his forehand. The Greek saved both break points he faced against Shapovalov to move to 18-5 for the season.

“I tried to stay as aggressive as I could from the baseline,” Tsitsipas said after the match. “It wasn’t easy out here but I did a very good job. I was responsible with my decision making. It was a good day.”

Tsitsipas will next face Australian Alex de Minaur in the quarterfinals.
