Tsitsipas Reaches the Last Eight at Roland Garros (Highlights)

No. 5-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas and No. 13-seeded Andrey Rublev reached the last eight at Roland Garros for the first time.

Tsitsipas won 6-3, 7-6 (9), 6-2 against No. 18-seeded Grigor Dimitrov and Rublev beat unseeded Marton Fucsovics 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (3).

Tsitsipas has some treatement for an irritation to his eye at the start of the second set and saved two set points in the tiebreaker.

“I feel irritation in my eye and it happened in my previous matches as well. It’s still a bit irritated, I think it’s red,” Tsitsipas said. “The tiebreak was very tense, the tiebreak was where all the money was. I showed lots of discipline.”

Rublev saved three set points serving at 5-4 down and 0-40 in the fourth set, then won on his second match point when Fucsovics put a forehand into the net.

The two-time U.S. Open quarterfinalist Rublev had never been beyond the first round at Roland Garros.

He next faces fifth-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas.
