The Frenchman played really good tennis against the Greek. Gael was fantastic in the first set when he broke the world no.12 on 2 occasions and he kept his nerves in the 2nd set after he won a tense tiebreak. The final score was 6-3 7-6 (5) in a match that lasted 90 minutes.
Tsitsipas is a real champion. MONFILS
Gael was elated with his performance to comment
“Stefanos is a great player. There’s no doubt. Today I think it was just a few points. He’s a real champion and he will become a big champion.
I was very aggressive today, I tried to dictate and I did my job at the end. Today I served very well, this is my best serving day so far.”
Gael will face Daniil Medvedev in the semifinal. They have never played each other so far.
