Stefanos Tsitsipas marches on at Wimbledon
It was a pretty decent match from Tsitsipas who is looking better and better with every match on grass. The Greek player arrived to London from Mallorca having won the trophy there by beating Roberto Bautista Agut. In this one, he took an early break and then added another one later on to win the opening set 6-2. Tsitsipas did not allow a single break point.
He served well and he was superb behind his first serve dropping only one point. On return, he simply outplayed Thompson from the baseline. In the 2nd set, Tsitsipas faced a bit more issues than in the opening one because his opponent played quite a bit better. Tsitsipa also gave his opponent a few chances and Thompson broke him once as well.
The issue was that he lost that early 3-1 lead by dropping six games in a row losing the 2nd set with 6-3. That was a spectacular series from Tsitsipas as it's quite difficult to do on grass. The 3rd one was a pretty typical grass one where neither player allowed much on their serve. The first break points happened fairly late and they were match points for Tsitsipas who finished it off 7-5.
