In the first surprises.. Tsitsipas bid farewell to Wimbledon
The first surprises at Wimbledon were not late, after American Francis Tiafoy, on Monday, ousted Greek third candidate Stefanos Tsitsipas, after winning him in three consecutive sets 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Tiavoy entered the Grand Slam competition after winning the Challenger Championship, Nottingham, and presented an impressive match against the Greek star, who reached the Roland Garros final and was satisfied with second place after losing to the world’s number one, Novak Djokovic. And the Greek player’s lack of brilliance appeared in playing matches on grass courts, especially since he did not compete in any tournament on this ground before participating in Wimbledon, to deposit the fourth-ranked in the world competitions early. It is noteworthy that the American player did not exceed his entire career in the third round at Wimbledon, but he succeeded in stopping Tsitsipas’ successful career in the Grand Slam competitions, as he used to be among the top four in his last 3 participations in this type of competition.
