The ninth-seeded Serb, competing in his first tournament since his Wimbledon triumph last month, won a dominant 83 percent of his first service points and wrapped up the day's opening match minutes before the first of several rain delays.

The 21-year-old German moved ahead early in the second set but Tsitsipas broke at 3-5 and held serve to pull event.

Tsitsipas, ranked 27, spent just over two hours in advancing to the first Masters 1000 quarter-final of his career. "I think before he was playing really bad". But even the Andy one, I was a little surprised by that one just because he was entered on his protected ranking, and the Federation chose to help him out so he could pull out with his protected and get a wildcard entry so he could save it for another tournament.

The tennis player further credited Tsitsipas for the victory and praised him for displaying commitment and discipline on the court. But as I said, I didn't feel the ball at all. He just played better in the decisive moments.
