However, he performed very well at Roland Garros, and changed the first lap against the Spanish Munar (108th) 4: 6, 2: 6, 6: 1, 6: 4, 6: 4 and his career in the semi-final against Serbian Djoković it was over. —6: 3, 6: 2, 5: 7, 4: 6, 6: 1.
Six of today’s worlds entered the final tournament of a season unparalleled in history, losing this year’s U.S. Open Thiem 6: 7, 6: 4, 3: 6 replay. Tsitsipase was especially lamented with a lost draw, leading 5: 3. Later, he did not use a clear position for setball and after the break Thiem moved and then ended up in the net.
