Stefanos Tsitsipas cruised past Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-3, 7-6 (3), 7-5, to advance to the French Open semifinals!
“I feel privileged that I’m in that position, and I feel obviously I’ve put in a lot of daily hard work (that) has been a key element of me being here,” he said in his post match interview.
The Greek star’s progress to this point has been no surprise- he won the Monte Carlo and Lyon titles during the European spring.
He has won 20 of 23 matches on clay this year and carries an eight-match winning streak into the quarterfinals, a stage at which he has never lost at a Grand Slam tournament.
And he is confident in his tennis at Roland Garros, where he came within a set of reaching last year’s final.
Tsitsipas will now face German Alexander Zverev for a spot in the final.
