Tsitsipas will now face the American 20th seed Taylor Fritz in Round 16 on Monday.

During the match against Paire, Tsitsipas received a warning from referee Marijana Veljovic for allegedly receiving training from his father and coach Apostolos Tsitsipas. The Greek was completely shocked and smiled at the referee in disbelief.

“Rules break – coach warning, Mr. Tsitsipas,” the referee said. “I have to give you a warning about training you because I told you before! I’ll take it as training. I told you that. After the first set, remember? ” she added.

Tsitsipas just smiled at the decision and didn’t get into an argument with her as it was just a warning. She eventually kept his serve in that game and won the set.

Later in the press conference, Tsitsipas said he laughed because his coach’s box was so far away from his position on the field.

“I have no opinion. I laughed because it was funny because of the position of the pitch I was on and I was so far away from my coach and with my back to the other direction. So I just laughed because I was. I don’t know where it came from. It was completely unexpected,” he say.
