Stefanos Tsitsipas Knocked Out of Shanghai Masters Final



Greek tennis champion Stefanos Tsitsipas lost to number 3 Daniil Medvedev in two sets (7-6, 7-5) at the semi finals of the Shanghai Masters on Saturday.

Medvedev has now seen off the 21-year-old — who defeated world number one Novak Djokovic on Friday — in all five of their matches.

There was nothing in it as they entered the first-set tie break after 43 minutes of high-quality tennis.

Seventh-ranked Tsitsipas blinked first, gifting set point when he shanked a forehand and then doing the same moments later to put the Russian a set up.

Medvedev broke the Greek — who repeatedly tried to gee up the crowd — in the third game of the second set.

The Russian served for the match at 5-4, only for Tsitsipas to dig in and break for 5-5, before Medvedev did likewise.
