The Greek loses the first set then comeback and beats the number 3 in the world 4-6 6-3 6-3. wait for the winner of Djokovic-Ruud
Daddy’s children didn’t fight this time. There were no controversies or accusations. Stefanos, son of father coach Apostolos and Sascha son of other father coach Alexander senior, played a game of tennis. Not too fought, not too spectacular, not too much, in short. At the end in the final at the Masters 1000 in Rome the Greek goes, more lucid and reactive until the end of a match played under the heat for two good hours and a half and closed 4-6 6-3 6-3. First final in Rome for Tsitsi, former champion in Monte Carlo and candidate number 1 at this point, for the title of Roland Garros which in 2021 escaped him against Djokovic after being 2-0 in the final.
Stefanos, who loves the land because it allows him to study the opponent’s moves and predict them, Sascha who on red has collected 3 of the five Masters 1000 with Rome to open the glorious career of three-figure tournaments. The conditions for a good battle were all there. But there was also a devastating, suffocating heat that certainly doesn’t help to express the best unless your name is Rafa Nadal. After an extremely balanced first set, won by Zverev with only one break in the seventh game, the second grabs Tsitsipas with a burning start: double foul by the German, who begins to fight with his own service, and sinks down to 4-1 and then go to the third set. Where the Greek becomes more and more enterprising and tactically aggressive, he snatches the joke from Sascha in the fifth game and goes to settle in the final, where he awaits the winner between Casper Ruud and Novak Djokovic who is hunting for the thousandth game in his career.
