Greeks at Roland Garros (French Open)

There is a great possibility that we will have two Roland Garros finals with Greek participation. Hopefully both Tsitsipas and Sakkari are mentally ready to give their all in the semifinals. Both opponents are beatable.

Maria Sakkari had the opportunity to finish Krejcikova in the 3rd set while up 5-3 and with match point 40-30, lost out on deuce. Now she is fighting for her life trying to beat her on deuces. She is not dominating in the serving department like she normally does. At the end she loses 9-7. So disappointing!!! 😭

Great run from Tsitsipas in the French Open, this loss will sting him after blowing a 2-0 set lead. You cannot make mental mistakes to Djokovic or he will punish you. He looked lost in both 3rd and 4th sets. Did a little better in the 5th, but not enough. He is going to win grand slam titles in the near future. The greats will not be around forever.

It's that mental readiness I was talking about before. Both Tsitsipas and Sakkari could not cope with being so close to major success. I think Stefanos relaxed a bit after winning the first two sets and you can't do that against the very best such as Djokovic. Hopefully he learns from this experience.

2022: Another year, new chances. The tournament started today with Round 1.

Valentini Grammatikopoulou is unseeded and was drawn against the also unseeded Daria Saville from Austr(al)ia;

Fourth seeded Maria Sakkari has Clara Burel from France as her first opponent;

Stefanos Tsitsipas (seeded #4) will face Italian Lorenzo Musetti.

Let’s hope they do well!

Tsitsipas struggled against Musetti. After losing the first two sets he managed to turn the match around: 5-7 4-6 6-2 6-3 6-2 

Next opponent is Zdenek Kolar from the Czech Republic.

Tsitsipas to round 3 after defeating qualifier Kolar with 6-3 7-6 6-7 7-6.

Next opponent is Mikael Ymere from Sweden. Ymer is unseeded and knocked out the #29 seed in round 2.
