Stefanos Tsitsipas ends Tommy Paul’s run at the Rolex Paris Masters and joins Novak Djokovic in the semis

Stefanos Tstisipas, who had never really shone at the Rolex Paris Masters with the exception of a quarter-final against Novak Djokovic in 2019, has finally invited himself to the last four of the tournament. The Greek put an end to Tommy Paul’s fine run in 1h16 of play (6-2, 6-4). In the semi-finals, he will therefore find Novak Djokovic, easy heartthrob by Lorenzo Musetti.

Tsitsipas dominated in the first set (saving the seven break points he had to face) against a Tommy Paul who could not print this rhythm which had allowed him to destabilize the entire Spanish sector this week (Roberto Bautista Agut, Rafael Nadal and Pablo Carreno-Busta). The Greek then relied mostly on his serve to upset a more inspired American in the second set.

But Paul, who had not lost a single point in his last three service games in the second set, ended up cracking at 5-4 by offering the game, and therefore the match, on a string of unforced errors. It was the 60th victory of the season for Tsitsipas. But not the most spectacular.
