Tsitsipas storms past Garin to Monte Carlo quarterfinals

Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas advanced to the quarterfinals of the Rolex Monte Carlo Masters on Thursday.

The world number five battled past Cristian Garin 6-3, 6-4 after one hour and forty minutes to reach the last eight.

Tsitsipas fired 17 forehand winners and won 75% of his net points (15/20).

This is his sixth trip to the quarterfinals this year.

“It was a really difficult task to complete. Cristian played good tennis and gave me a hard time out on the court,” Tsitsipas said in his post match interview. “I stayed composed and focused throughout the entire match.

“Things seemed not to be going my way towards the end of the second set, but I stepped back and left my mark. Things worked out well. I was fighting [and] I was putting my best performance out there. I was creating a lot of opportunities with my forehand and I think my serve paid off pretty well,” he added.

He will face Alejandro Davidovich Fokina for a place in the semifinals.
