Tsitsipas beats the rain
The top favorite of the current Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, Stefanos Tsitsipas, overcame Ilya Ivashka… and the rain, which kept the Greek tennis player on edge throughout the day. Finally, the current number five on the tennis planet was able to play and is already in the round of 16, a round in which he will have the Bulgarian Dimitrov on the other side of the court. A high-tension duel, which will surely delight the best fans.
The meeting, which started yesterday in two different episodes due to rain, resumed when the clouds disappeared for a while from the RCTB sky. In fact, the organization of the tournament decided that the meeting should resume this time on the Jan Kodes court, the court that was in better condition after all the rain that fell during the day. After losing the second set of the match, Tsitsipas imposed his quality and did not let Ivashka give the surprise.
The current tournament finalist, in any case and because of the rain, will have to play another match tomorrow if he beats Dimitrov. Double duty, round of 16 and quarter-finals on the same day, which all the tennis players who are still alive in the singles draw will have to do.
