Just one week later, Stefanos Tsitsipas will face Rafael Nadal again in the Rome semifinal, which is expected to start at around 3:30 pm Greek time.
In the semifinals of the previous Saturday in Madrid, the Greek champion managed to defeat for the first time in his career the Spanish legend, making a great appearance.
This time, the King of clay courts will surely appear more ready and will want nothing but win.
It will surely be a very difficult game, and the final winner will be judged on the details.
In addition to qualifying for the big final, Tsitsipas will also compete for a position in the Top 5 of the world rankings, as with a victory today, he will overtake Alexander Zverev in the ranking. Even with a defeat of course, he will probably manage to do so in Roland Garros as he will have 315 less points to defend against the German. If he succeeds in getting to Top 5, Tsitsipas will be the youngest who succeeds after Zverev.
