Stefanos Tsitsipas managed to win his debut at Roland Garros and qualify for the second round of Grand Slam of the year. The Greek champion was in very good shape, which seemed to be, as well Maximilian Marterer scored 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (4) in less than 2 hours of play, winning the ticket for the second round of the tournament.
Although the 20-year-old tennis player lost by 2-3, he took the next 3 points and has not lost control since then; on the contrary, he pushed the German tennis player enough to tire him and give up his strength. Stefanos managed to create a double match point at 6-4, taking advantage of his first chance for forehand winner.
In Round 2 of Roland Garros, Stefanos Tsitsipas will face 25-year-old Hugo Dellien. The race is due to take place on Wednesday 29/05.
