For both Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, this will be a maiden Monte-Carlo Masters quarterfinal.
The massive difference between them is that that for the 21-year-old Davidovich Fokina, this is a career tournament.
For Tsitsipas, it’s just another quarterfinal – something he has achieved in every tournament he has played so far in 2021.
The Greek star is the strong favorite. And rightly so.
