Wimbledon 2021: Frances Taifoe upsets Stefanos Tsitsipas in 3 sets marathon, advances to round 2- Third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas has lost to World No.56 Frances Taiafoe in the opener of Wimbledon 2021. The latter proved tricky and won all three sets against the top seed Tsitsipas.

Despite a superior service performance, including 15 aces, Tsitsipas never really found the grass form that saw him reach the fourth round at The Championships in 2018. Tiafoe notched a stunning victory over Tsitsipas in the first round as he defeated the Greek No.3 seed in three straight sets.

The American never dropped serve en route to the biggest win of his career to reach the second round.

The spectacular performance from Taifoe saw him led Tsitsipas in all the sets. He went on to win the match 6-4, 6-4 and 6-3.

Tsitsipas, who fell to Novak Djokovic a fortnight ago after leading by two sets in the final at Roland Garros, was the highest seed drawn into the World No. 1’s half. His exit opens up Djokovic’s path to finish the year at the top of the FedEx ATP Rankings for a record seventh time.

Tiafoe’s best result at a Grand Slam was reaching the quarter-finals at the 2019 Australian Open. The duo met each other for the first time in the main draw. Tsitsipas, on the other hand, had made it to the semifinals or better in his last three appearances at grand slams.
