Stefanos Tsitsipas has very upset dates

That US Open 2022 immediately offers unexpected surprises. The most sensational victories on the first day, for example at the last Grand Slam of the season, came from Daniel Elahi Galán. The Colombian, born in 1996, defeated the fourth in the world rankings Stefanos Tsitsipas in four sentences.

Defending champion Emma Raducanu and two-time US Open champion Naomi Osaka were also eliminated. Tsitsipas, who was one of the favorites to win the final on the eve of the major, immediately leaves the main draw.

An unexpected twist considering the finals in Cincinnati were won in the Masters 1000 prelims to the US Open. The Greek number one never really came into play, especially in the first two sets where he suffered a very clear 6-0, 6-1.

In the third set he doesn’t change much in terms of his presence on the pitch, but he does in the result: he takes the third set and also picks up the match point. Only a temporary respite considering it was always the Colombian who held his own on the court in the final set, scoring a tiring 7-5.

In the bitter defeat, however, one particularly negative figure stands out for the winner of this year’s Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has very upset dates

Stefanos Tsitsipas suffers the second bagel of the season, the third of his career.

However, the first two were caused by two Big 3 players: Rafael Nadal first, then Novak Djokovic. The Spaniard punished the Greek 6-0 in the semifinals of the Australian Open in 2019, where the bagel arrived in the third and final set after suffering an initial 6-2, 6-4.

However, for the one inflicted by Novak Djokovic, it doesn’t seem to go far in the past. In fact, it goes back to this May: In the final of the Internationals in Rome, the Serb didn’t give his opponent a game in the first set.

On the other hand, the second set, which ended in a tie-break, was always in favor of the Belgrade tennis player. Galan is the only player who does not belong to the Big 3 and has added a clear 6:0 to the fourth in the world rankings.

Also, this part came under different circumstances: if the other two were in the last two acts of major tournaments, here it is in the first game of the US Grand Slam.
