‘I hope the winning streak continues,’ says Stefanos Tsitsipas ahead of semi-final

Stefanos Tsitsipas is on an incredible winning streak as he heads into the Barcelona semi-final against Jannik Sinner.

Tsitsipas won his first ever Masters 100 title last week in Monte-Carlo, beating Andrey Rublev in straight sets, and didn’t drop a single set all week.

That form has continued this week, defeating wild card Juame Munar, Australian number one Alex de Minaur and Canadian youngster Felix Auger-Aliassime all in straight sets, putting him on an incredible run of 14 sets in a row.

On beating Auger-Aliiassime, the Greek says he’s feeling good about his game and wants the winning streak to continue.

“I think my hard efforts paid off,” said Tsitsipas.

“It feels good to be able to play the way I am. I really hope the winning streak continues.”

Now, he will face a real test in the semi-finals against 19-year-old Jannik Sinner who is also in the best form of his career, recently breaking into the top 20 in the world and making the semi-finals on his Barcelona debut.

The pair have only met twice before and share the head-to-head record, with both players winning one match each on the clay surface in Rome.

“He [Sinner] is someone that has been growing a lot on the circuit and has so many great wins recently, said Tsitsipas.

“He is definitely one to look seriously into. I want to show something good against him.

“He is younger than me but so was Felix. I don’t like to look at it this way because we all play tennis at the end of the day.”
