Tennis

Second-seed Stefanos Tsitsipas has been knocked out of the Rotterdam Open after he was upset in straight set by unseeded Aljaz Bedene on Thursday.

World No. 52 Bedene survived a break point early in the opening set before breaking world No. 6 Tsitsipas’ serve to take the lead. The Slovenien held his serve throughout the match and edged the second sets to win 7-5, 6-4.

Bedene, 30, will now face Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime in the quarterfinals.

Russia’s Andrey Rublev powered past Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik 7-5, 6-3 and will face the winner of Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic and Canada’s Vasek Pospisil, who play later on Tuesday.

Italy’s Jannik Sinner defeated Belgium’s David Goffin 7-6(7), 7-5 in straight sets to advance as well.

Defending Rotterdam champion Gael Monfils will also play later on Tuesday in an all-French tie against Gilles Simon.
