Greek hero boss in tennis drama


Stefanos Tsitsipas and Facundo Diaz Acosta were the main players in a tennis drama in Barcelona. And after he had to dig deep to save two match points, the Greek walked away with the laurels.

Tsitsipas eventually won the clay court quarter-final in the Spanish city with 4-6, 6-3 and 7-6.

“At times it felt like I had to climb a mountain to win the game. It was difficult. It was a challenge to dish out top-quality play for the entire showdown and I had to come out and show,” said Tsitsipas.

According to the winner of the Monte Carlo Open, Diaz Acosta is a very good clay court player.

“Fortunately, I have many tennis matches behind the table and I have been in similar situations before. I know that anything is possible on the track.”

It was the Greek player’s ninth win of the clay court season, while he has not been on the losing end once.

“On clay, however, you can’t take anything for granted and you have to work hard for every precious point. In addition, Facundo rebounded the ball excellently.”

Tsitsipas plays in one of the semi-finals today against Dusan Lajovic.
