In the "16" of Rome, Tsitsipas
The Greek tennis player, who managed to win the first set yesterday, took the second set today in the tie-break and won 6-3, 7-6 (3).
Tsitsipas had the opportunity to "clean up" the second set and the match relatively easily, but, while holding his serve comfortably, he lost the opportunity to break in three different games. Sonego recovered and reached two bowl sets, at 5-4 and 6-5, but in both cases "Steph" "erased" them with winners and finally the set was taken to the tie-break. There Tsitsipas took the first two points, Sonego the next three and then the Greek champion with five consecutive points reached 7-3 and qualified.
The next opponent of Stefanos Tsitsipas will be the winner of the match between the Italian Lorenzo Muzzetti and the American Francis Tiafoe.
