Tennis News, Stefanos Tsitsipas’s withdrawal from an elbow issue left Greece through another hammering from Poland in the 2nd ATP Cup singles tie

Not a good look for Greece right now when not only they lost the first singles tie but also the second too as Hubert Hurkacz too good for untried 20-year-old Aristotelis Thanos 1-6, 2-6 which sealed Poland a best of three series win 2-0 with the solitary doubles game to spare in Group D.

They hope 4th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas would be ready on time to rescue Greece’s poor start after Kamil Majchrzak blew away Michail Pervolarakis earlier on (1-6, 4-6), but chose to withdraw for this tie due to an elbow issue and is still recovering while his team lost full strength against a tough competitor like Hurkacz who is ranked No.9 in men’s singles.

Although Tsitsipas is back on the court now in the doubles tie with Pervolarakis v Hubert Hurkacz & Jan Zielinski, there’s still plenty of work to do for Greece if they want to force their way to the semi-final.
