Tsitsipas into His 1st French Open Semifinal

PARIS — Stefanos Tsitsipas is into his first French Open semifinal.

The fifth-seeded Greek player beat 13th-seeded Andrey Rublev 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 to avenge a loss in the Hamburg final less than two weeks ago.

His semifinal opponent will be either top-ranked Novak Djokovic or 17th-seeded Pablo Carreño Busta. They were up next on Court Philippe Chatrier.

Tsitsipas also reached the semifinals at last year’s Australian Open.

Earlier today, Polish teenager Iga Swiatek has reached the French Open semifinals in both singles and doubles.

Swiatek and American partner Nicole Melichar beat the American pair of Asia Muhammad and Jessica Pegula 6-3, 6-4 to reach the last four of the doubles competition.

That came a day after Swiatek reached the singles semifinals by beating Italian qualifier Martina Trevisan.

Swiatek says she’s “getting more experience in tactics in doubles. … So I’m just developing as a player.”

Swiatek’s opponent in the singles semifinals on Thursday will be 131st-ranked Argentine qualifier Nadia Podoroska.
