Roger Federer dumped out by Stefanos Tsitsipas in Australian Open fourth round

Double defending champion Roger Federer got knocked out of the Australian Open by Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round on Sunday.

Federer took the first set after a quite lengthy tiebreaker, but failed to put the 20-year-old Tsitsipas in check as the Greek secured the next three sets to run out with a 6-7(11), 7-6(3), 7-5, 7-6(5) victory.

“I’m the happiest man on earth right now, I can’t describe it,” Tsitsipas said.

Federer will now have to wait for his 100th career singles trophy and will drop out of the top 5 when the new rankings list is released on 28th January.

It is the second time in 16 years that Federer has failed to reach the quarterfinals in Melbourne.

“There are always multiple factors in matches like this, but it didn’t go well on the set points,” Federer said. “I lost to a better player who played very well. He stayed calm and hung in there, which is not easy for younger guys so credit to him.”

For Tsitsipas, the victory sees him become the first Greek to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event. He will play Roberto Bautista-Agut for a place in the semifinals.

Bautista-Agut had earlier beaten 2018 runner-up Marin Cilic in five sets to progress.
