Tsitsipas punched his ticket for the final by beating the world’s number two player, Novak Djokovic from Serbia, by 2 sets to 1.

The first set was won by Djokovic with a score of 6-3; however, Tsitsipas surged back and won the second and the third by scoring 7-6 and 6-4 respectively.

Tsitsipas will play in Saturday’s final against either current world #1 Rafael Nadal or Karen Khachanov from Russia.
