In action at the Miami Open presented by Itau is Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek, who was playing for the first time this fortnight, prevailed 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 over Chilean qualifier Cristian Garin to advance to the fourth round in Miami for the fourth year running.
The Greek had withdrew from Acapulco due to a shoulder issue, and after losing in the first round at Indian Wells, he had only played three times in the previous month. Then, in Miami, Richard Gasquet gave him a first-round bye and a walkover in the second round.
Tsitsipas will next face Karen Khachanov after he hit 30 wins and secured the vital break at 4-4 in the decisive set. With the hard-court competition, the Greek hopes that his fitness will continue to advance.
