HIGHLIGHTS

  • Tsitsipas won the match 6-2, 6-3, 7-5
  • Tsitsipas churned out five aces and two double faults
  • Tsitsipas is the fourth seed in the ongoing championship

Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas, on Thursday, June 30, defeated Australia’s Jordan Thompson 6-2, 6-3, 7-5 on Court 1 in the second round of the Wimbledon 2022.

Tsitsipas came into the game after beating Switzerland’s Alexander Ritschard in four sets. But against Thompson, the veteran put his best foot forward, hardly allowing his opponent to get a foothold back into the contest.

At one point in time, Tsitsipas caught Thompson napping after he won seven games in a row. He didn’t look back from there on and kept going from strength to strength. Tsitsipas also churned out five aces and two double faults in his outing.

Tsitsipas is the fourth seed in the ongoing championship and the lack of experience showed on Thompson’s part. Unforced errors flowed from Thompson, who couldn’t produce a lot of chances to overpower his opponent.

KYRGIOS THROUGH TO THIRD ROUND

In another match, Australia’s Nick Kyrgios has made his way through to the third round of Wimbledon 2022 after beating Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 on Court 2. The Aussie star hardly looked flustered and finished the game off without much fuss.

Frenchman Richard Gasquet also made it through to the third round after beating USA’s Mackenzie McDonald in the second round on Thursday. He is next set to lock horns with Dutch player Botic van de Zandschulp, who beat Finland’s Emil Ruusuvuori in the second round.

Earlier in the day, Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut became the third player in the Wimbledon 2022 men’s draw to pull out of the tournament after testing positive for Covid-19.
