Greece’s young tennis sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas is into his first French Open semifinal!
The fifth-seeded Greek player beat 13th-seeded Andrey Rublev 7-5, 6-2, 6-3.
“I’m chasing something spectacular,” said the youngest player in the top 10.
The 22-year-old also believes his time is near. “I’ve been feeling really comfortable on this court and despite a bad start and being a break down I remembered what a big fighter I am,” he said after the match.
“Roland Garros is a tournament I have been watching since I was a kid and always dreamed of playing on these courts. I used to skip classes at school to watch it. That’s how much I like this tournament. It’s a dream come true playing here and in front of the public.”
Tsitsipas will meet top-seeded Novak Djokovic in one of Friday’s semifinals.
From GCT, we wish Stefanos all the best!
