Stefanos Tsitsipas slips into the third round of Roland-Garros without calming down

There is better in Stefanos Tsitsipas. This time the Greek did not need to overcome a two-set handicap to cross, as in his first round against Lorenzo Musetti.

I knew it was going to be a tough day. Today I was present, I had opportunities, break points, I stayed, but he had very good ideas, he did not exaggerate. He is a smart player. ยป
