Australian Open: Stefanos Tsitsipas Sets up Last-16 Clash with Jannik Sinner

Melbourne, January 20 (QNA) – Third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas kept his unbeaten streak this year intact Friday with another romp at the Australian Open to set up a round of 16 clash with Italian Jannik Sinner.

Tsitsipas, who has yet to drop a set, clinched his seventh straight win of 2023 by beating Dutchman Tallon Griekspoor 6-2, 7-6 (7/5), 6-3 on Rod Laver Arena to coast into the fourth round.

With defending champion Rafael Nadal and world number three Casper Ruud both out, Tsitsipas, who won all four games at the United Cup leading into the Grand Slam, is the highest seed left on the men’s side.

“It was good mixing up today, my slice, opening up the court. I think my placement on the serve was exceptional,” said Tsitsipas.

“I didn’t have a lot of rallies on my serve today, which helped, and I just kept things clean. I enjoyed finding my way through today, it wasn’t easy at times.” he added.

For his part, Sinner said he would be better prepared this time for Tsitsipas. (QNA)
