    Very intriguing match on court no. 1 between the sons of Greek fathers (the reason of including the Greek alphabet to the picture), highly anticipated since the draw was made. Kyrgios [40] saved mini-set points at 4-all in the 2nd set (second serve ace) and 3:4 in the 4th set. He also saved two set points in the 4th set, at 4:5 and 6:7 in the tie-break (with a serve-and-volley action) which he won 9/7. Tsitsipas [5] lost his temper after Kyrgios leveled at 1 set apiece. The Greek moderately hit the ball towards people in the front row, but didn’t harm anyone, and perhaps it was the main reason he wasn’t disqualified (only warning) – Kyrgios demanded it, and it caused that Tsitsipas was even more angry, and he was trying to hit Kyrgios’ body in the 3rd set a couple of times. The match was played under the roof since 4-all in the 4th set. The Australian leads now 4-0 in their H2H rivalry (main-level), dropping a set on every occasion. There was a cold hand-shake and in the post-match press conference, Tsitsipas accused his opponent of bullying people.

    Serve & volley: Kyrgios 2/7, Tsitsipas 2/3
