The game did not start with the best omens for him Steph, since he received the break only in the 3rd set. However, he then hit the… accelerator, and after defending his serve, “broke” that of his opponent in the 8th game for 4-4. He then got to 6-5 and, determined not to take the set to a tie-break, broke again for 7-5 and the 1-0!
In the second set, things were easier for the best Greek tennis player. In the 4th game, and after several break points presented to him, he managed to “break” the serve of his opponent and reach the 3-1. From that point on, he had no problem holding his own serve, making it very easy to reach the 6-3 and 2-0 set.
The sets (2-0): 7-5, 6-3.
