Stefanos Tsitsipas punches Daniil Medvedev. After an impressive battle of 2h21, the Greek finally dominated the former world No. 1 in three sets (6-3, 6-7, 7-6) at the end of the suspense. The third in the world rankings is recovering from his opening defeat against Novak Djokovic and will play the second qualifying ticket for the semi-finals in the red group against Andrey Rublev on Friday. Medvedev has already left.

He went through all the emotions, but the winner of the 2019 edition of the Masters tournament ended the evening with a big smile. Tsitsipas was scared, yes, against Daniil Medvedev, but he dominated the 2020 Masters winner well for the fourth time in the last six encounters between the two players. The Greek got off to the best start and met Gilles Cervara’s protégé, who was still too delicate.

Tsitsipas missed 3 match points in the 2nd set
After his break collected from the start, Apostolos’ son proved tenacious in his faceoff, where he multiplied the serve volley sequences to win the first set without too much trouble. As a champion, Medvedev gradually woke up, and the fight could really begin. Originators of some great rallies, the two players capsized the crowd at the end of the second set during a colorful tie-break.
While leading 4-1, the father, 26, multiplied errors to send his opponent back ahead of a number of crucial points which saw the two men display their best tennis to prolong the pleasure. After saving three match points against him on serve, it was Medvedev who made the difference on his fourth set point.

Tsitsipas then faltered slightly and on his first break chance in the final act, the 2021 US Open winner capitalized on what we saw as a crucial advantage, having not dropped points in his first three service games. Aside from completely breaking through at 5-4 in his favor as he finished serve before waving the final tie break.
Still far too irregular, especially mentally, the Russian already has nothing left to play in Turin, where Tsitsipas will try to return to the semifinals in a promising game on Friday against Rublev, against whom he leads 6-4 in head-to-head clashes.
A hot start for Djokovic
