Red-hot Stefanos Tsitsipas claims scalp of Kevin Anderson in Estoril

ATP Tour

Stefanos Tsitsipas can do no wrong at the moment as he beat top seed Kevin Anderson at the Estoril Open.

Fresh from finishing runner-up to Rafael Nadal at the Barcelona Open, Tsitsipas claimed a come-from-behind victory over the South African, winning 6-7 (3-7), 6-3, 6-3 in two hours and 13 minutes.

The Greek teenager produced a solid serving display as he wasn’t broken during the match, but he broke the big-serving Anderson once in the second set and twice in the decider.

The 19-year-old will face Roberto Carballes Baena after the Spaniard overcame Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie 5-7, 6-2, 7-6 (7-1).

Second seed Pablo Carreno Busta also moved into the quarter-final with a 6-1, 7-5 win over Argentine Nicolas Kicker, and the Spaniard will face Nicolas Jarry, who beat Ricardo Ojeda Lara 6-3, 7-6 (8-6).
