Stefanos Tsitsipas reaches French Open third round

·

Stefanos Tsitsipas reached the third round of the French Open for a sixth time on Wednesday, after defeating a resilient Daniel Altmaier.

Under the roof on Court Suzanne Lenglen, the Greek overcame a Altmaier 6-3, 6-2, 6-7(2), 6-4 in two hours and 45 minutes.

Tsitsipas played flawlessly for the first hour, striking 27 winners in the opening two sets to move clear. However, the German refused to surrender and hit with perfect timing in the third-set tie-break to gain a foothold in the match.

Altmaier broke Tsitsipas’ serve for the first time in the fourth set. With a fifth set looming, Tsitsipas played more aggressively, breaking back for 4-4 before he powered to victory.

“It felt amazing. To get to play such marvellous tennis. I really enjoyed it,” Tsitsipas said after the match.
