MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Tsitsipas Bros. steal the Show in Melbourne

MELBOURNE, Australia – It’s hard to know if it’s a spectacle that will repeat during Sunday night’s Australian Open men’s singles final.

Or if the show will be outside in Garden Square.

But one thing is for sure: there is a huge Greek-Australian community in Melbourne.

And they love them some Tsitsipas.

So when Stefanos Tsitsipas and his brother Petros took to Court 13 to play their first-round match against Ramkumar Ramanathan and Miguel Reyes-Varela, it was all Tsitsi.

The brothers pulled off a comeback win, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

And the crowd was off the charts.

Here’s what it looked like (what we could see of it).

(They almost caused a shocked in the second round, too, losing 7-6 (6), 4-6, 7-6 [10-7] to the No. 1 doubles team in the world, Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski.

Probably just as well, for Tsitsipas’s singles chances, that his schedule eased up.

But you would expect a LOT of love on Sunday night.
