The Greek champion made a very good start today on the single board, winning Mikhail Kukushkin’s hands with 6-3, 7-5, thus securing a place for the “16” Monte-Carlo Masters. Stefanos Tsitsipas acted more confidently and dynamically, which was mainly in the second set where he even pushed his 31-year-old opponent even more.
The 20-year-old tennis player managed to beat the record of last year’s performance at the Masters of Monaco and won the ticket for the next round. The challenge that the young athlete will face is his confrontation with Daniil Medvedev, who holds the upper hand in a sense because he has not been defeated in any of his previous three meetings.
