U.S. Open / Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Adrian Mannarino Highlights | 2021 US Open Round 2
Tsitsipas "made full use" of the toilet time and claimed that this was the key to his entry into the third round of the U.S. Open. He created 27 aces on serve, broke his career record and broke into the third round of the US Open to tie his personal best.
This time, the 23-year-old Greek player Stefanos Tsitsipas, who ranked as the third seed in the men’s singles at the US Open, was booed today for "resting" more than 8 minutes between the 3rd and 4th sets because he was on a long "toilet trip". After that, he defeated French player Adrian Mannarino 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (4-7), 6-0 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
When asked about the key to a 6-0 sweep in just 30 minutes in the final set, Tsitsipas said: "I want to take a break and make a change-I was soaked-then I was so energetic. Give it a go."
Tsitsipas , who won the runner-up at the French Open this year, said that the World Professional Tennis Association (ATP) did not limit the time to go to the toilet, he just followed the rules. In this campaign, Tsitsipas scored a career-high 27 aces, 5 more than his previous personal record.
