Tsitsipas is reborn to subdue Sinner and reach the semifinals

Melbourne (Australia), Jan 26 (EFE).- The Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas was reborn and recovered his best version, submitting the Italian Jannik Sinner (11) for a resounding 6-4, 6-3 and 6-2, and will be in a semifinal of the Australian Open in which he will face the Russian Daniil Medvedev (2) or the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (9). “I have been impeccable and I am very happy with the way I have served. Having the support of the stands is incredible”, explained Rod Laver Arena on the court after closing the game in two hours and six minutes. The Greek, who conceded up to four sets in his first four matches, recovered the tennis that made him lift the ATP Finals title in 2019 in a performance in which he did not concede any break balls and converted the four he had. “My doctor has been seeing him. He’s been texting me throughout the tournament. He was confident that he could play here”, he explained in reference to his relationship with the doctor who operated on his elbow at the end of last year. Tsitsipas, who had a large Greek crowd in his favor, confirmed his good feeling at Melbourne Park after earning his ticket to the semi-finals for the third time in five appearances. He will have the opportunity to take revenge for his defeat in the semifinals of the last edition against Medvedev, in the event that the Russian prevails over the Canadian in what will be the last confrontation of the tenth day of the tournament.
