Stefanos Tsitsipas cruised past Borna Coric 6-3 6-2 after 72 minutes without facing a break point to reach his third ATP Tour final of the 2023 season at the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo in Los Cabos in hot and humid weather conditions.

Tsitsipas earned a break in the sixth game to win the first set 6-3. The Greek player never looked back in the second set and broke twice in the first and fifth games to seal the second set 6-2.

Tsitsipas entered the 2022 season with a 1-3 deficit in his head-to-head matches against Coric, but he beat his Croatian opponent three times at the United Cup, in Rome and Los Cabos to lead 4-3.

“Once again. It’s joyful playing on this court. I made myself feel very comfortable today. I am very happy with that. It’s not easy under these circumstances to reach that level of comfort. I am really happy with the way things things were put together”, said Tsitsipas.

Tsitsipas set up a championships match against Australia’s Alex De Minaur, who converted seven of his nine break points in his 6-2 6-7 (5-7) 6-1 win over Dominik Koepfer to reach his 13th ATP Tour final.

Tsitsipas leads 9-0 in his previous head-to-head matches against De Minaur, including a 6-4 6-2 win in the Barcelona quarter final last April. The Greek player beat his Australian rival in the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan in 2018.

“It’s a brand new match for me. De Minaur is someone that has played a lot of matches this week, so he is on a good run. So I am. I am going to try and put up a fight out there and give it my best shot. Tomorrow is a big fight for me”, said Tsistipas.
