Tsitsipas beaten by Humbert in Tokyo

Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece takes a medical timeout during his third round match against Ugo Humbert of France at the Tokyo Olympics, at Ariake Tennis Park, Tokyo, on Wednesday. Third-seeded Tsitsipas who was beaten 2-6 7-6(4) 6-2, took a nasty tumble on court at set point in the second set tiebreak. He was unable to recover, going down a double break to lose the match against the Frenchman in the decider. The 22-year-old, who made the men’s final at Roland Garros before losing to Novak Djokovic, will compete in the mixed doubles with Maria Sakkari later on Wednesday. [Reuters]
