Stefanos Tsitsipas

The Greek star has been at his dominant best so far in the competition. He has not dropped a set so far in the competition.

Tsitsipas was awarded a bye in the first round. He began his campaign against the British No. 2 – Dan Evans. The fifth seed won the match comfortably in straight sets 6-3, 6-4. In the round of 16, Tsitsipas won the first set against French qualifier Corentin Moutet quite convincingly. Moutet was much more competitive in the second set but could not push the match into the third set. Tsitsipas won 6-3, 7-6 (7-3).

Tommy Paul

The American tennis pro managed to pull off the biggest upset of the campaign so far. He has defeated three Spaniards en route to the quarterfinals.
