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.
