Greek tennis champion Stefanos Tsitsipas eliminated wild card Maxime Cressy 7-6(2), 6-3, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the fifth time.
He had only won one US Open match entering this year’s event. But the fourth seed has looked impressive en route to the third round at Flushing Meadows.
Tsitsipas will face 27th seed Borna Coric. The Croatian rallied to oust Argentine Juan Ignacio Londero 7-5, 4-6, 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-3 after four hours and 19 minutes.
