Schwartzman Stops Tsitsipas in Semifinals

The Argentine raced through the first set, breaking Tsitsipas’ serve twice to take the set 6-3 in just 33 minutes. The Greek responded by immediately breaking Schwartzman in the first game of the second set. The two would trade breaks throughout the set, with the Argentine taking it in the end, 7-5. Of course it must be mentioned that Tsitsipas had to play three more matches than Schwartzman this week, so the Argentine clearly benefited from the extra days of rest.

As a result of Tsitsipas’ semifinal run, he will now shoot up 27 places in the rankings and make his top 100 debut, as he will be ranked 95 in the next world rankings. With few points to defend between now and May, it is safe to say that the young Greek will continue to improve his ranking as long as he stays healthy.
