Stefanos Tsitsipas delivers Nick Kyrgios verdict as Greek star sets up blockbuster tie

Date:


Stefanos Tsitsipas set up a mouth-watering third round clash with Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon after beating Jordan Thompson 6-2, 6-3, 7-5. The Greek star was in firm control from the very beginning of the match and even a wild outburst from Thompson could not put him off.

“I feel like there isn’t a single person here that doesn’t know Nick. He is, in a way, Wimbledon,” Tsitsipas said.

“We have played each other and had great matches against one another in many tour level competitions.

“I have respect for his game and the way he is able to utilise his talents and the way he is able to fight when he really wants to.

“It is going to be a challenging one on grass and he is a big opponent for this surface.”

Earlier in the day Kyrgios blasted past Filip Krajinovic inside just 84 minutes before declaring that Wimbledon is his strongest chance of winning a Grand Slam title.
