TSITSIPAS BEATS MEDVEDEV IN 3-0 SETS AND ANNOUNCES HIS ARRIVAL TO NADAL
Nadal has been the undisputed champion of Roland-Garros for a decade or so. During these years he dismissed with ease any opponent but this year at his age he has to face a real new star in Stefanos Tsitsipas.
I was skeptical about Stefanos because I watched him match after match but I could no see where the champion was. Last night, yes with no spectators but millions watching on TV, I saw the star rising and declaring his arrival in the Grand Slams. There was no fluke in display.
Powerful, accurate, determined and never letting go, he beat a very good Medvedev, who showed he is still the big player but on this occasion he fell to a better player.
Tsitsipas will face Zverev next but that will be a formality provided he remains at the same level of play and focused. It looks a straight fight of the big four now with Nadal and Djokovic expected to be in the other semi-final on Friday.
We only say GO STEFANOS!!!
