Stefanos Tsitsipas will be there for the final of the ATP tournament in Barcelona. In the first semi-final, the Greek got the better of Jannik Sinner in two sets. The Italian was immediately put under pressure by the world number 5 but was able to dismiss two break points in the second game before missing two shortly after. More threatening on the face-off of his opponent, Stefanos Tsitsipas ended up winning in to give himself the opportunity to serve for the first set. An opportunity that the number 2 seed of the tournament did not pass up.

A mistake Stefanos Tsitsipas didn’t make, converting in the game following his third chance to take a decisive advantage. Now his opponent’s head under water, the world number 5 went to conclude the meeting with his opponent’s faceoff (6-3, 6-3 in 1h23 ‘), now waiting to know which of Rafael Nadal or Pablo Carreño Busta will be his opponent this Sunday in the final.
