Champion Tsitsipas confused by Next Gen rules

D’Tigers D’Tigress Arrive In Lomé For 2018 FIBA 3×3 Africa Cup

First seed Stefanos Tsitsipas remained on course to potentially challenge de Minaur by beating Poland's Hubert Hurkacz 4-1 4-3 (7-2) 4-1.

Meanwhile, Tsitsipas is now scheduled to lock horns with Alex De Minaur of Australia in Sunday's final.

Tsitsipas, one of the sport's most improved players this year after starting the season ranked 91st, also finished runner-up to Rafael Nadal in Barcelona and Toronto.

Last year's inaugural event was won by South Korea's Hyeon Chung who proceeded to have a successful campaign in the Australian Open warm-ups, but was halted by foot injury in Melbourne. It's a shame it couldn't finish with a win but I couldn't be prouder.

But he's top 15 and Munar is, I think, 18, 19 in the world, which looks like normally Tsitsipas supposed to win, like, not easy but with confidence, and the match was so close.

And I think this is little bit not fair because the other guys, they have little more chances to win always. I was mentally very strong and that proved in the tiebreak in the last set.

He was sacked as a result of violating a protection order Courtney had against him. The already depressing Zach Smith saga just keeps getting sadder and sadder.

Tsitsipas served 10 aces against De Minaur but was only able to convert one of his eight break points.

The tournament, which features the best U21 players in the world, uses a different scoring format.

'Hopefully I'm going to make the pre-season like I never did before and I can perform well next season and can compete with the top players'.

"I've played some incredible tennis throughout the whole year. But really proud with myself, and I really owe it all to the team of people I've put around me".

Tsitsipas overcame the meltdown as he went on to prevail 4-3 (3) 3-4 (5) 4-0 2-4 4-3 (2) over his Russian opponent.
