Stefanos Tsitsipas advances to second round at Mexican Open

Stefanos Tsitsipas made his debut at the Mexican Open in Acapulco, defeating Benoit Paire.

Greece’s tennis star proved too good for Paire 6-3 6-1 in just sixty-nine minutes.

“I felt very responsible and very truthful to the way I was playing and the way I was fighting so that was really nice to see. The crowd brought all the energy, they backed me up, they supported me throughout the entire match,” the 22-year-old said.

He will now face American John Robert Isner.

Tsitsipas first visited Mexico towards the end of 2014 for back-to-back junior tournaments.

“That was my first elevation in tennis. Mexico is pretty much the place where it all started for me, chasing the dream,” he said in his post-tournament interview.

“I feel like Mexicans share a lot of common things with Greeks and I can see that from people and the food and the culture. There are many similarities and I really like Mexican people. They treat me really well and they’re very hard-working and humble and very ethical in many ways.”
