20240409 071337

Stefanos Tsitsipas extended his impressive record at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters on Monday by reaching the second round. His opponent, Laslo Djere, was forced to retire due to right arm pain while Tsitsipas was leading 6-3, 3-2.

Tsitsipas has consistently performed well at the Monte-Carlo Masters, winning the tournament in 2021 and 2022. He also advanced to the quarter-finals in 2023.

"Things are looking good. I am hoping to go the same way," Tsitsipas said. "I really enjoyed getting a better consistency on my serve towards the end. I hope to keep mixing it up and coming up with fun plays."

The 25-year-old has struggled to find his highest level in 2024, though, holding a 12-6 record on the year. Arriving in Monte-Carlo at No. 12 in the PIF ATP Rankings, Tsitsipas will hope a return to the clay-court event can help him return to his best
