Tsitsipas suffers, Khachanov devastates and Thiem will face Monfils

The Greek overcame Krajinovic (7-5, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (6)) in a game that was postponed on Friday due to lack of light and will face Wawrinka.


Stefanos Tsitsipas knew how to suffer against Filip Krajinovic to secure the pass to the round of 16 of Roland Garros for the first time in his career. He had already passed his best result reaching the third round and now he will face to find the quarters to Wawrinka, who won to Dimitrov in three tiebrakes (7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) and 7-6 (8)). The Greek beat the Serbian on Saturday in a game that was postponed on Friday for lack of light with a 7-5, 6-3 and 5-5 in his favor, a score that ended at the end with two tie-breaks: 6 -7 (5) and 7-6 (6) .

Krajinovic complicated Tsitsipas's life a lot when he was placed with a break up in the fourth set and pulled out to win with 5-4. But the disciple of the Mouratoglu school squeezed his teeth and came to a tie-break in which he fixed the situation. The Hellenic has gone from more to less as the level of his rivals has increased and now he will face a greater challenge.

In the old and almost extinct track 1, Wawrinka threw out gallons of champion (2015) and category to stop the Dimitrov's progression in his attempt to return to the top positions of the elite. The Swiss, with nerves of steel and 57 winners, with which he palmed his 60 unforced errors, had the luck he deserved in a duel with a result perhaps somewhat unfair to the Bulgarian game.

Thiem will face Monfils

in the eighthsThe Austrian Dominic Thiem, number 4 of the ATP ranking, won in the third round of Roland Garros to the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas, 6-3, 4-6, 6 -2 and 7-5 in two hours and 36 minutes. Cuevas returned to stay at the door of the round of 16, which no Uruguayan tennis player has disputed since 1999 Marcelo Filippini.

Thiem, finalist of the last edition of the Parisian Grand Slam, has left a set in each of the three matches played so far in the tournament. In the next round will be measured by a position in the quarterfinals against Frenchman Gael Monfils, who beat his countryman Antoine Hoang, invited by the organizers, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-3. For his part, the Russian Karen Khachanov easily overcame the Slovakian Martin Klizan in 1 hour and 42 minutes of play (6-1, 6-4 and 6-3).
