Paris (AP) – The Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas reached the semi-finals of the French Open for the first time in his career. The 22-year-old beat the Russian Andrei Rublev of the same age on Wednesday 7: 5, 6: 2, 6: 3.
The sixth in the world rankings also returned to favor for the defeat in the final of the tennis tournament in Hamburg ten days ago. In the battle for a place in the final, Tsitsipas will compete against the number one in the world, Novak Djokovic from Serbia or the Spaniard Pablo Carreño Busta. The other semi-final on Friday will be played by twelve-time tournament winner Rafael Nadal from Spain and Argentinian Diego Schwartzman.
