Roland Garros: "Battle of the Titans" Tsitsipas-Alcaraz
From the moment the 24-year-old champion found his footing and with difficulty overcame the obstacles that the Austrian (ranked 118 in the world) put in the first set (he started with a break on the Greek's serve) and reached his conquest, from then on the they always got simpler.
It only took one hour and 50 minutes for Tsitsipas to "seal" the "ticket" for the "8" of the top Grand Slam and return to the quarterfinals of the tournament after 2 years, where the world's top tennis player is already waiting for him, Carlos Alcaraz (walked Lorenzo Muzzetti earlier).
For the Greek tennis player, today was the 22nd victory in his career at the French Open (22-6), but also the 53rd overall in a Grand Slam. He will take part in the quarter-finals of a Major tournament for the 7th time (he has 4 at the Australian Open, in 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023) and 3 (after his victory over Offner) in Paris (2020, 2021, 2023 ).
