Pat Cash: Stefanos Tsitsipas was impressive against Alexander Zverev

1987 Wimbledon champion Pat Cash was impressed with the way world No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas performed against seventh-ranked Alexander Zverev at the Nitto ATP Finals on Wednesday. The 21-year-old Greek improved to 2-0 in Group Andre Agassi and sealed a semifinal spot after a comfortable win over defending ATP Finals champion Zverev 6-3 6-2 in an hour and 13 minutes of play.

"Tsitsipas (was) impressive tonight versus Zverev (at the) ATP Finals but as I have seen way too often with Zverev, his court postioning and movement (as quick as he is) allows for good attacking players to manoeuvre him around," Cash said in a Twitter post.

The two players were tied at three games apiece after the opening six games of the match before Tsitsipas claimed back-to-back breaks and went on a five-game won run to take a 6-3 2-0 lead. Zverev served out the third game of the second set to stop Tsitsipas' run but that didn't lead to a comeback as the Greek went on on a three-game won run to take a 5-1 lead, before serving out for the match in the eighth game.
