Tsitsipas Leads Team Greece to Victory in the First Match

Stefanos Tsitispas United Cup Sydney

Tsitsipas defeats 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.

"Today was a good summary of how aggressive I can be. I'm always seeking extra credibility in my game and whatever I can add to my game I am always willing and open-minded.

“I always have a lot of energy when I'm playing in Australia, which keeps my blood pumping.”

It was Diez who struggled physically in the match, receiving a medical timeout in the first set. Tsitsipas dominated on serve, saving the only break point he faced to triumph after one hour and 18 minutes.

According to Infosys ATP Stats, Tsitsipas won 90 per cent of his first-serve points and broke serve three times from six chances. He hit six aces in his first Lexus ATP Head2Head meeting with World No. 314 Diez.
