Tsitsipas advances and is feeding the option of a final with Djokovic


The forecast points to a final between the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and the serbian Novak Djokovicwhich will also be a direct match for the number one exit Carlos Alcaraz. Although the history of this 2023 Australian Open, with injuries and unexpected losses in every tie, invites caution until it becomes a reality.

For now, Tsitsipas, 24 years old and world number 4, is doing his part. He reached the semifinals of the tournament for the fourth time, defeating the young Czech talent Jiri Lehecka by 6-3, 7-6 (2) and 6-4 in 2h.17′.

On Friday he has an appointment in Russian Karen Khachanovawho beat the American Sebastian Korda 7-6 (5), 6-3, 3-0 and retired with a racket injury.

The Athenian has time to prepare for this attack, which this Wednesday will soon follow the quarterfinals of the other side of the draw, with an American aperitif in between Ben Shelton Y tommy paul and a main course from 09:30 am between Serbian Novak Djokovic and the russian Andrei Rublev.

The performance offered by Tsitsipas was excellent, with his best Grand Slam result being the 2021 Roland Garros final, where he came to dominate Djokovic two sets ahead.

He is a clear favorite, he proved it with an aggressive game, it is not for nothing that his technical adviser is the former Australian ‘gunboat’ Mark Philippoussis. He traced the eight-ball ‘break’ against a promising Lehecka, 21 years old and number 71 in the world. The Central European hit cleanly and smartly. Purely Czech school. Quality and coolness. And the lack of experience has been fixed over time, playing matches like this one, where he dropped his serve only twice against a fierce opponent, combined as a top.

The game only had one dangerous action left from Stefanos Tsitsipas who hit the ball against the canvas with a ball boy close to the action. If he touches it, disqualification when he leads 6-3, 7-6, 4-3, 30-15.
