Tsitsipas advanced to the quarter finals in Rome
The match between the Greek champion, who is ranked No. 5 in the world, and the Italian tennis player (No. 19 in the world), ended at 02:43 Greek time, as due to the delay in the end of the previous matches, it started almost an hour after midnight .
The main reason for the delay of the match was the meeting of the Ukrainian, Angelina Kalininina (No. 47 in the world) with the Brazilian, Beatriz Haddad Maia (No. 15), which lasted three hours and 41 minutes and ended with a victory of the European tennis player with 6- 7(2), 7-6(6), 6-3.
Fortunately for Tsitsipas, today is a day of rest, while tomorrow he faces Croatia's Borna Coric (No. 16 in the world).
