Sakkari sends Greece to the quarterfinals of the United Cup

Maria Sakkari defeats Leylah Fernandez 7-6 6-3 to secure Team Greece's spot into the United Cup quarter-finals.

Just before this game Tsitsipas defeated Steven Diez with a commanding score of 6-2, 6-3. Notably, Tsitsipas only faced one break point throughout the entire match, which he successfully saved.

Asked about the strong Greek support he received, Tsitsipas said, “Athens, Sydney, it doesn’t make much difference right now. I am out here enjoying playing tennis. There is a lot of blue and white around the stadium, which happen to be my favourite colours.
