Tsitsipas To Face Dimitrov In Roland Garros Fourth Round


Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first Greek to reach the Roland Garros fourth round on multiple occasions on Saturday.

The fifth seed was leading 6-1, 6-2, 3-1 when Aljaz Bedene, who received on-court treatment for a right foot injury, retired after 80 minutes on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.

Tsitsipas, who is now 25-9 on the 2020 season, will next face Bulgarian No. 18 seed Grigor Dimitrov for the first time.

The 22-year-old lost just 12 of his service points, hitting 10 aces among 28 winners prior to Bedene retiring from their second ATP Head2Head meeting. The 31-year-old Slovenian had beaten Tsitsipas 7-5, 6-4 at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam in February.

Dimitrov also advanced courtesy of a retirement. The 18th seed was leading Roberto Carballes Baena 6-1, 6-3 when the Spaniard touched racquets to bring the 64-minute encounter to a close.
