He failed to overcome the “obstacle” Monfils the Greek champion. who fouled Open Sofia in the quarter-finals.
The Frenchman, with his first serviced weapon, was charged with Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3, 7-6 (5), and gave no chance to the Greek champion to break his serve.
Monfils started dynamically with a break in the very first game of the game and still achieving a break in the 9th game ended the first set with 6-3. In the second set, the game went with the two athletes to keep their serve and tie in tie break. There, despite the fact that Stephanos was in front with a mini break and the balls in his own hands to serve for the set, three consecutive points of the French gave the win to Monfils 7-5.
Next stop for Stephan Chitsica in Rotterdam where he will participate in the ABN AMRO World Tournament.
