Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Serbian player Viktor Troicki in the second round of the Australian Open in four sets.

Tsitsipas came off a four-set win against Italian Matteo Berrettini on Monday and today won the first set 6-3, before losing the second 2-6 and winning the third 6-2, and fourth 7-5.

Tsitsipas has now made it into the third round of a grand slam for the second time in his career and has won five of his last seven matches on a hard court.

With a strong Greek fan base behind him, Tsitsipas is hoping to make it through to the Quarterfinals.
