MELBOURNE: Stefanos Tsitsipas found another equipment when it was necessary to defend oneself Jannik Sinner in a five-set thriller and reach the australian open quarterfinals in a rare win for the top seeds on Sunday.
A year after dropping Sinner in the quarters at Melbourne Park, third seed Tsitsipas crushed the Italian’s hopes of a great escape as he held on to finish a 6-4, 6-4, 3 -6, 4-6, 6-3 victory at an uprising Arena Rod Laver.
With the Greek dominating for two sets as Sinner came back into the match, Tsitsipas captured the decisive break in the decider’s sixth game before sealing it in style with a forehand cross.
The three-time Australian Open semi-finalist will meet the 21-year-old, unranked Czech. Jiri Lehecka for a place in the semi-finals.
