Maintaining his high level in the second set as well, Tsitsipas scored another break in the fifth game (3-2), and held the lead until the end.

If Tsitsipas makes it to the quarter-finals, he will likely fall on Alex De Minor (playing in the “16” with Sebastian Ofner), who will remain in the Top 10 only if he defends the title in Acapulco.

Tsitsipas will now play against Flavio Kompoli, The 21-year-old Italian who managed to overturn Felix Oze Aliassim, in the next round at Acapulco.
