Greek professional tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas reached the Australian Open semi-finals for the third time with a overriding straight sets victory over Jannik Sinner.
Fourth seed Tsitsipas who was beaten in the last four in 2019 and 2021, won 6-3 6-4 6-2 on Rod Laver Arena, after 11th seed Italian Sinner failed to witness a break point in the match.
The 23-year-old Greek will now face the winner of Russian Daniil Medvedev – the highest seeded player in the draw – against Canada’s ninth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime.
Tsitsipas wrapped up the opening set in 36 minutes and broke early in the second with a superb array of groundstrokes before the rain began to pour in Melbourne.
Tsitsipas said, “I am very, very happy with the way I served today and used my tactics.
“It is part of the game. You never know what to expect from the weather. I knew I was heading towards the right direction.
“The conditions might have changed a little bit – slightly faster, not as bouncy – so my mind did. I tried to adapt and it just worked.”
