After an awkward hold in the very first game, Stefanos was rock solid for the entire match. The Greek looked superior to his opponent in every department. However, Struff managed to hold for the entire first set before surrendering at the breaker.
In the second set, Tsitsipas conquered the decisive break in the 5th game before winning the encounter 7-6 (5) 6-4 in 89 minutes.
