Shaggy Stefanos gets career win


Stefanos Tsitsipas showed up in Monte Carlo with traces of a beard.

And it seems shaggier he gets, the better it’s working for him as the 19-year-old upset world No. 7 Dominic Thiem in straight sets in the Barcelona quarterfinals Friday.


The hair is getting longer, the beard is coming in. Perhaps Tsitsipas is superstitious – and won’t make any changes until he … hits the top 50?

He falls one short of that with Friday’s win. If he beats Pablo Carreño Busta in the semis Saturday, he’ll make it easily.

A year ago, the Greek teen stood at No. 206.
