Stefanos Tsitsipas was made to work hard in his quarter-final clash against German Jan-Lennard Struff at the ongoing ATP Dubai Tennis Championships 2020. The Greek ace had to fight back from a set down before eventually prevailing against the relentless Struff.
As a result, the 2019 runner-up is once again through to the semi-finals in Dubai where he will meet Brit Dan Evans.
Tsitsipas has enjoyed a good few weeks, having previously defended his Open 13 Provence crown last week by defeating Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime.
He carried that form into Dubai, where the 21-year-old sailed through the draw without dropping a set until his quarter-final encounter with Struff. Nevertheless, after two hours and 23 minutes, Tsitsipas ended up victorious 4-6, 6-4, 6-4.
Britain's Dan Evans was equally impressive against 22-year-old Russian, Andrey Rublev in his quarter-final clash. In a heated encounter that went over two hours, it was Evans who overcame the challenge posed by the sixth-seeded Russian to set up a date with Tsitsipas.
Will Tsitsipas continue his good run of form or will Evans produce another inspired display in the semi-final?
