Stefanos Tsitsipas found himself in a difficult position on Sunday at the Roland Garros against Italian Matteo Arnaldi. However, the Greek managed to dig his way out and reach the quarter-finals in Paris for the fourth time.

Tsitsipas trailed Arnaldi 3-6, 3-5 and was being outplayed on Court Suzanne-Lenglen. Nevertheless, he saved three set points on his serve at 3-5 before fending off another in the next game to break back and level the set at 5-5. The ninth seed then closed out the set and powered to a 3-6, 7-6(4), 6-2, 6-2 victory.

"I had to push today. It was one of the craziest comebacks I have had," Tsitsipas said. "The momentum seemed to be going his way the entire match. It was very frustrating on my end because I thought I was trying my best, trying to make him move, but nothing really seemed to be working.

"The spirit is the reason I managed to comeback today. Even at 3-5 in the second set I felt that I could comeback. That there was power in me to turn this match around and I think the game at 5-4 when I broke him was the biggest pleasure I experienced in tennis for a long time because I felt there was a chance. Now me and the crowd are on this and it felt amazing."
