Stefanos Tsitsipas has cruised into the fourth round, securing a 6-4 6-1 6-1 win over quarantine training partner Mikael Ymer.
“It took some time for me to get used to the new conditions on John Cain but I’m very happy with my game,” said Tsitsipas.
“I think I showed a good quality of tennis today. Mike is someone that I’ve known for a long time and it’s quite important for me to have battles like this against him and for the next generation of tennis as well. All of us have been working really hard to get where we are today.”
The duo, both 22, were both untroubled on serve early. It was the Greek fifth seed who first manufactured a break point in the sixth game, which Ymer saved with a perfectly executed overhead. Serving at 4-5 and perhaps feeling the scoreboard pressure, the Swede played an untimely loose game to be broken to love after stringing together four unforced errors.
