Tsitsipas said "Goodbye" to Halle as well
The 24-year-old tennis player's attempt to qualify for the round of 16 of the Terra Wortmann Open was not successful, as he did not find the solutions against the excellent serve of the Chilean (no. 28 in the world).
Now, with today's victory, Tsari leads Tsitsipas 2-1 in their meetings on the court, while he made it 2 for 2 against the Greek tennis player on a grass surface after his victory at the 2019 Libema Open, then in three set (6-4, 3-6, 6-4).
Tsitsipas had his chance in the first game of the match to take the lead with a break, he didn't succeed and from then on, Jari didn't give them any more room. The two tennis players "resolved their differences" in the tie break, where the Chilean managed to win 9-7 and take the lead.
In the second set, Jarry made a decisive break in the 11th game, leading 6-5 and holding his serve to close the match and advance to the quarterfinals, where he will face one of Alexander Zverev and Denis Shapovalov (with this matchup he will close the program on the center court).
It should be noted that in addition to the disqualification, Tsitsipas with his 13th loss on grass (he has 17 wins) lost the opportunity to get even closer to Casper Rude in the rankings, being only 245 points away before today's match with Jari.
