Tennis “Greek Freak” Tsitsipas loses to Nadal in Australian Open

World No. 2 Rafael Nadal will play in his fifth Australian Openm final after defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets. Nadal needed just one hour and 47 minutes to beat with 6-2 6-4 6-0 the Greek tennis superstar.

Thousands of diaspora Greeks in Australia had set big video walls to watch the crucial match.

In his father home village Proastio by Karditsa, North Greece, the school closed at 10 in the morning and all residents gathered at the village square to watch the match via a projector.

Even if Tsitsipas did not manage to reach the Grand Slam final he certainly made all Greeks proud.

The 20-year-old has a bright future in front of him, anyway.
