Tsitsipas survives a scare to make his first Roland Garros R4!

Stefanos Tsitsipas is through to the fourth round of a major for the fourth time in a row and his first in Paris.

A match that the Greek number one was in charge of up two sets and mid-set in the third looking good for the win before bad light meant that they had to postpone last night and come back tomorrow.

This suited Filip Krajinovic out of the two as the Serb went away and came back this morning pretty sharp.

He was hitting his ground strokes well against Tsitsipas with great depth against the 20 year old who was pretty much hanging in there for the third set which he lost.

The fourth set he got off to an early break before the Serbian pegged him back and he did look like he would continue to go from strength to strength but Tsitsipas stuck with it and despite being down in the tie-break with Krajinovic a point away from a set point but it was Tsitsipas who got the job done in four to secure his place into the next round.
