Tsitsipas Wins At Barcelona Open Despite Torrential Pour

Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas progressed to the third round at the Barcelona ATP tournament on Thursday as torrential rain meant only two singles matches were played.

The Greek world No 5, who is fresh off the successful defence of his Monte Carlo Masters title last weekend, defeated Belarusian Ilya Ivashka 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 after two hours and 13 minutes.

Tsitsipas will next play 14th seed Grigor Dimitrov who also needed three sets to secure victory over Argentina's Federico Coria 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Dimitrov made the semifinals in Monte Carlo and trails Tsitsipas in head-to-head meetings 2-1.
