The Greek goes to the next round without his debut. Tsitsipas will face either Garín or Báez after Gasquet withdrew with an ankle injury.
Stefanos Tsitsipas came many doubts Miami Open. The Greek without a hundred percent came from the elimination in the first exchange against the Australian Jordann Thompson in Indian Wells. This time, on the contrary, I expected a Sealant who had overtaken O`Connell on his debut. Two precedents of face-offs with both sides winning, although Tsitsipas had to be the clear favourite, although, as we say, not at his best.
Tsitsipas aims to surpass his best result
In the end, the game was not played and Tsitsipas missed his debut. Of course, they were «good» in the sense that news is good for a Greek tennis player, which is that he made it to the next round without physical wear and tear. At the last minute Richard Gasquet confirmed his withdrawal from the tournament due to an ankle injury. This is how the Frenchman begins to think about the clay tour, where he hopes to do a good job and above all to enjoy himself in front of the fans in the last tournament of the season and the second Grand Slam tournament, Roland Garros.
Tsitsipas, on the other hand, already knows that he will have to face Cristian Garín or Sebastián Báez. The Chilean, for his part, arrives with great confidence in the duel against the Argentine Sebastian Baez debuted. Favorite is before a Cristian Garin who looks reborn and very confident in this second Masters 1000 of the season.
Stefanos has balance seven wins from four losses in the tournament. He hasn’t had great performances and so far his best results are the quarter finals in 2021 where he lost to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz. In the last round, he fell to Carlos Alcaraz in the round of 16.
