Spoke too quick. Tsitsipas fought back and tied the game 2:2 sets. The deciding set about to start.

And that's after leading the first set 5-1 only to lose it 7-6

Sakkari became the first female Greek tennis player to reach a grand slam quarterfinals.  She beat Kenin in straight sets 6-1, 6-3. 

Maria Sakkari fells to Italy's Martina Trevisan 6-1, 6-7 (6-8), 3-6 
Falling behind 3-0 in the second set, came back nicely to take a 6-5  lead only to let this slip away and fall into a tiebreaker. First time this year, she lost the tiebreaker. Fell behind 3-0 again in the third set, never she was able to comeback again. This is why you start off strong and final off afterwards.

Tsitsipas disposes of Dimitrov in straight sets 6-3, 7-6 and 6-2. This is only the 2nd time in his career he's reached a Grand Slam Quarter Final (after the Aus Open'19) 

Next up for him is the Russian 13th seed Rublev, who beat Tsitispas last week in the Hamburg open final. Stefanos was in that match and served for the match at one point so he's in with a good chance.

Tsitsipas got his revenge and swept Rublev out of the competition 7-5, 6-2, 6-3. 
On to the semifinals where he could face Djokovic unless baring a upset from Carreno Busta.

Djokovic clearly superior to Tsitsipas in their semifinal game. Tsitsipas comes close to win sets but just can't finish it off. On several occasions he's been leading 40-0 in points to only to lose the game. 

Down 2 sets. Looks like Djokovic will easily prevail in 3 sets.

Easy first round for Tsitsipas in the 2021 tournament. 7-6, 6-3 and 6-1 against Jeremy Chardy of France.

The situation with Osaka in the French Open is very disturbing. She isn't entitled to be at the media if she has issues with her mental health. What hypocrites WTA/ATP are for not putting athletes first when it comes to their health. She was forced to withdraw from the tournament. I love Osaka so much, very humble, sweet, and down to Earth.

Sakkari won in 3 sets over Mertens 7-5, 6-7 (2-7), 6-2 
She dominated the third set after blowing a huge chance to close out the second set. 
What a great way to respond! Next, she is facing Russian born American player Sofia Kenin, who is ranked #4 in the world.

Tsitsipas sweeps Carreno Busta in 3 sets 6-3, 6-2, 7-5 
Now the hard part, he has to face Medvedev in the quarterfinals. This is his chance to show that he can dethrone his long time arch nemesis. I think if he beats him, the path to the finals is achievable.
