With this achievement he has become the youngest man to reach the Grand Slam semifinals since 2007.
Stephanos's 20-year-old rival congratulates him on his extraordinary victory and ranking in the next stage of the race.
"He is a complex player. There is a good forehand, a good backhand. Works well. I think he knows the game well. He knows what he is doing," Bauteti Agut said shortly after the match ended.
Cicipas has another reason to play without defects. In the stands he was supported by his parents, who had a long history of tennis. His father, Apostolos Tsitsipas, was his personal trainer, and his mother, Julia Apostoli, was ranked number 1 in the world for young children. Stefanos brothers and sisters were also present at the match.
"It's almost like a fairy tale. I lived my dream, I experienced what I had done for so long," Cycispas said enthusiastically to the audience in court.
"I'm glad I played well today," continued the tennis player. "I can show that my victory is no accident."
Regarding what he expected from the future, Stefanos is a category: "I want to continue to experience this adventure."
Tennis players born in 1998 in the Greek capital are currently ranked 15th in the world rankings. Only twenty years he had the chance to conquer many peaks, but before that, Stephenos had to complete the parade in Melbourne.
In the semi-finals Cycispas will play with the winner of the match between Rafael Nadal and Francis Tiafof, who got rid of Grigor Dimitrov in the previous round.
Spaniards and Americans will make their way a little today at the Arena Row Layer.
Whatever the results of the upcoming meeting, one thing is certain. From now on, we will increasingly hear the name Stefanos Tsitsipas.
