Victory for Tsitsipas against Shelton in Cincinnati Masters

·

Stefanos Tsitsipas (No.4) won against American Ben Shelton (No.40) 7-6 (3), 7-6 (2) to advance to the last 16 of the Cincinnati Masters at the Linder Tennis Family Center on Wednesday evening.

The two tennis players started by defending their serve and were led to the tie-break. There, the Greek champion was calmer making three mini-breaks, turning 1-0 to 7-3.

The picture of the second set was similar, which again went to tie-breaks. 

A spectator directly behind Tsitsipas was distracting his serve, causing him to request from the umpire she be removed from the court.

In the end, the No. 4 in the world ranking made four mini-breaks against one of Shelton and took the victory with 7-2 and 2-0 sets.

Tsitsipas will face the winner of the match between Pole Hubert Hurkacz and Croat Borna Coric next.
