Khachanov takes advantage of an underweight Tsitsipas

Date:

the russian Karen Khachanova Took advantage of the shoulder problems affecting the Greek on Tuesday Stefanos Tsitsipas and defeated him 7-6 (4) and 7-5 to reach the quarterfinals of Miami Masters 1,000.

Khachanov, world number 16, had not lost to Tsitsipas in six previous matches, including this year’s Australian Open, but opened in Miami to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in his career.

The Russian ended a 23-game losing streak against top-10 opponents in the world, which he had not beaten since August 2019.

Tsitsipas, second favorite, bid farewell to Miami after beating the Chilean with difficulty Cristian Garin in the third round, but his difficulties when it came to connecting backhands limited him significantly.

The Greek showed signs of slight improvement on Tuesday, after playing several setbacks against Garin on Monday due to illness, but Khachanov’s strong serve knocked him out of the tournament.

Khachanov will face his rival this Tuesday, which will come out in the duel between Argentine Francisco Cerúndolo and Italian Lorenzo Sonego.
