Stefanos Tsitsipas overcame Spaniard Roberto Carballes Baena with 6-3, 7-6(4), 6-2, to reach the third round of the French Open.

Tsitsipas overpowered the World No. 57 in the first and third sets, and recovered from dropping serve twice in the second set, winning a tight tie-break.

“I like the bounces and the way the ball [moves] when it is sunny like this,” Tsitsipas said after the match.

“There were a few instances this year where it rained a little bit and did not suit me as much, but I really enjoy sunny days like this.”

The Greek also thanked the crowd for their support and said it has “treated me well.”

Tsitsipas will next face Argentine Diego Schwartzman in the third round.

After the first round defeat of Daniil Medvedev, Tsitsipas has the opportunity to climb to the top spot if he wins his 10th tour-level title in Paris.
