PARIS – Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek to reach a Grand Slam final after holding off Alexander Zverev’s fightback from two sets down in a tense French Open semi-final on Friday (June 11).
Fifth seed Tsitsipas won 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-3 to halt a three-match losing streak in Grand Slam semi-finals.
Despite missing four match points in the decider, Tsitsipas regained his composure to serve out the match against his German.
The 22-year-old will face either top seed Novak Djokovic or 13-time champion Rafael Nadal in Sunday’s final.
