Stefanos Tsitsipas is the next high seed who makes an early exit at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. The Greek was upset by 30-year-old Aljaz Bedene from Slovenia: 7-5 6-4.
Bedene got off to a nervous start against the world No.6. "It was because I had to get used to the centre court, because conditions are different from Court 1, where I played my first round.”
"I didn’t start well, but I managed to up my level and started to serve better. Tsitsipas was the better player until 5-all in the first set, but then I got more confident.”
"I kept my focus on my own game because you can never think about being close to defeat a top 10 player.”
In the quarterfinals, Bedene will face young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime. "He’s a real athlete. It’s going to be tough but I’ll continue to play my game.”
