French Open 2021: Stefanos Tsitsipas Beats Daniil Medvedev And faces Alexander Zverev



Stefanos Tsitsipas

Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas showed his superior clay-court quality against Russian rival Daniil Medvedev to reach the French Open semi-finals.

Medvedev opted for an underarm serve on match point – which Tsitsipas dubbed “a very millennial shot” after putting it away to seal a 6-3 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 win.

It ended Medvedev’s surprisingly deep run on clay and put Tsitsipas into a third straight Grand Slam semi-final.

Tsitsipas, 22, faces German sixth seed Alexander Zverev in the last four.

Zverev advanced to the last four for the first time with a 6-4 6-1 6-1 win over Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, who later said he had been hampered by a back injury.

Like Tsitsipas, Zverev is also aiming to win his first Grand Slam by lifting the title in Paris on Sunday.

“It is very nice to be in the semi-finals but just being there doesn’t satisfy me,” Zverev, 24, said.

“I am playing pretty OK and hope to play the same way – and even better – in the semi-finals.”
