Talented Greek tennis star, Stefanos Tsitsipas is on his way to the 3rd round at Roland Garros for the first time. Tsitsipas won against Bolivian Hugo Dellien, in a 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 match that lasted over two hours and 49 minutes.
Tsitsipas admitted, "I started thinking what went wrong in the first set. That [bathroom] break helped me. So I went inside mentally prepared to fight more, and I was aware of the situation I was at. Once I got myself into the right mindset, things seemed to flow my way. And from there, winning the [second] set 6-0 was good confidence boost for me. Obviously, after that, he didn't want to give up. He fought as much as he could. But I seemed to prevail at the end."
In the next round, the Greek tennis player is scheduled to face Filip Krajinovic of Serbia and everyone in Greece will be cheering him on!
