Tsitsipas’ Toilet Breaks Getting More Attention than His Wins  

His long toilet breaks in the first round didn’t go down too well with Andy Murray, who made that clear not just on court but off it as well. Tsitsipas received widespread criticism for what is seen as an unethical practice to take the momentum out of an opponent’s game.

But the third seed was unperturbed, he had not broken any rules afterall, and took another extended bathroom break in the second round just when his opponent Adrian Mannarino had won the third set to give himself a new lease of life. Tsitsipas returned to the boos of the crowd after an eight-minute break, and then raced through the fourth set to equal his best ever U.S. Open showing.

Serving 27 aces and 53 winners, the World No. 3 dispatched Mannarino 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (4-7), 6-0 in two hours and 41 minutes. The 2021 Monte-Carlo and Lyon champion wasn’t broken in the match but he converted five of seven break points to advance to the third round for the second time, having done that last year.

In the first round, Tsitipas had needed four hours and 49 minutes to outlast Murray 2-6, 7-6 (9-7), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Alcaraz Continues to Impress on Debut

He knocked out the 26th seed Cameron Norrie in the first round of his U.S. Open debut, and then continued to impress in the second round with a four-set win over Arthur Rinderknech.

The 18-year-old, who struck 38 winners against the Briton in the first round, had 41 against the Frenchman in the second. Making a valiant comeback from 3-6 down in the first set tiebreak, Alcaraz seized the early advantage only to see the World No. 83 fight back in the second to draw level.

Pegged back, the Spaniard responded with two breaks of serve in the third set and then broke early in the fourth to take control of the set. He latched on to the lead till the end for a 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 victory. On Monday, Alcaraz had handed Norrie a 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 defeat.

Ranked outside the top 100 at the start of the year, the current World No. 55 took giant strides up the rankings, thanks to his run to the third round at Roland Garros, title success in Umag, and two semifinal appearances in Marbella and Winston-Salem recently.

Tsitsipas v Alcaraz Prediction and Tip

Having played two gruelling matches, Tsitsipas will be hoping to win this one quickly, but Alcaraz won’t let the Greek run away with it so easily. So expect this one to be a cracking contest with Tsitispas eventually prevailing.
