Stefano Tsitsipas shows once more that at 20 years of age he has reached already a very high level of “tennis maturity” in Tokyo.

The world no.15 was playing a high-quality 3rd round against “die-hard” Alex De Minaur and he looked to be in full control after leading 6-3 5-3 with Australian struggling to hold his serve in every single game. Then things went south for Stefanos after De Minaur saved 2 match points before winning 5 consecutive games and lead 3-6 7-5 1-0. Many players would have imploded, but instead, the Greek regained his composure to clinch the following 6 games and win the match 6-3 5-7 6-1.
