MELBOURNE, Australia | All Greek to him: Tsitsipas rides crowd support to 4th round
MELBOURNE, Australia—January 17, 2019— Stefanos Tsitsipas has reached the fourth round at the Australian Open, going where no Greek man has gone before at the majors but is still feeling right at home.
The No. 14-seeded Tsitsipas had a 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (7), 6-4 win over No. 19 Nikoloz Basilashvili of Georgia on Margaret Court Arena on Friday.
He reached the Round of 16 at Wimbledon last year and has become the first Greek man to advance that far at multiple Grand Slam tournaments.
