After a bittersweet start to the year, Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas will be making a comeback at the Palais des Sports de Marseille for the Open 13 Provence 2020 championships. The defending champion of the tournament, the 21-year-old Tsitsipas is eager to get back to winning ways after a crash loss in the opening round at Rotterdam against Aljaz Bedene. He will meet the equally young Swedish talent, Mikael Ymer in the Round of 16 clash.
Tsitsipas had not dropped a single set en route to claiming victory at Marseille in 2019 and the second-seeded player will be hoping for a similar run this time as well. 2020 has not been the kindest to the Greek youngster as he has been a little inconsistent. However, Marseille was his stomping ground a year ago and he will surely like to get things back in order.
On the other hand, the 21-year-old Ymer took down Frenchman Richard Gasquet in a thrilling three-set encounter to set up a date with Tsitsipas. Ymer is enjoying good form and is one of the most promising of the NextGen players. Considering how contemporary and vastly-talented Ymer and Tsitipas are, it will undoubtedly be an exciting clash.
Tsitipas will have to bring his best game to the match if he intends to repeat the 2019 victorious feat in Marseille.
