ATP Monte-Carlo – Stéfanos Tsitsipas is doing well against Diego Schwatzman despite a large air gap

Stéfanos Tsitsipas suffered but ultimately got away with it! In a partially dominated match, the Greek had to fight for another set and pull off an extraordinary comeback against Diego Schwartzman (6:2, 6/7 (3), 6:4). A match with an unreal scenario that allows Tsitsipas to join the semifinals and Alexander Zverev while Schwartzman is eliminated after a very good tournament.

Everything went very well for Stéfanos Tsitsipas. The Greek was very far back in the game from the start, dealing a lot of damage to his opponent. Constantly, regularly, aggressively, nothing seemed to be able to stop him. Schwartzman, on the other hand, had to do the punching bag for a long time before waking up.

Schwartzman won the first set 5-0 from the start. The Argentine only gave away free points too imprecisely, while Tsitsipas seemed insurmountable. Despite a burst of pride at the end of the set, he failed to topple his opponent. 6: 2 for Tsitsipas.

And Tsitsipas collapsed…

The second set seemed to be going in the same direction as the first with a flaming Tsitsipas. However, the Greek collapsed when the score was 5:2. An author of many errors, he gave Schwartzman 11 straight points and gave him hope for this match. The Argentine then went from the baseline to a real metronome, leaving his opponent to sink himself.

Schwartzman then drove home the point in the decider by breaking his opponent twice to lead 4-0. Then Tsitsipas, who had been missing for an hour, showed up. Once again overwhelmed, the Greek gave absolutely nothing. Thanks to a steely mind and near-perfect baseline play, Tsitsipas eventually defeated Schwartzman admirably 6-4.

The defending champion qualifies for this Saturday’s semi-finals thanks to this crazy match. He meets world No. 3 Alexander Zverev in the next round.
