Stefanos Tsitsipas continues his pursuit of a maiden grand slam title against Tallon Griekspoor in the Third Round of the Australian Open on Friday.

It could potentially be a fruitful fortnight for the third seed, who could also move top of the ATP rankings should he lift the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup on January 29.

Tsitsipas will certainly fancy his chances. After all, he is targeting a fourth semi-final appearance in five years at Melbourne Park.

The 24-year-old is also on a six-match winning streak this season, having won all four of his matches at the inaugural United Cup, where Greece reached the semi-finals. He has subsequently followed that up with successive straight-set victories here.

After putting Quentin Halys to the sword 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(6), Tsitsipas took just over an hour and a half to wrap up a commanding 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 success against local wildcard Rinky Hijikata, in which he hit 30 winners.

He will look to continue in that vein against Griekspoor, who has also reeled off six sets without reply to secure his maiden appearance in round three at a slam.

The world number 63 arrived in Melbourne with an ATP title already under his belt this year, having triumphed at the Maharashtra Open in India.

The Dutchman followed that up by seeing off Pavel Kotov 6-3, 7-6, 6-3 in the opening round, before beating 32nd seed and compatriot Botic van de Zandschlup 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

Griekspoor will be regarded as the underdog heading into his first meeting with Tsitsipas, but he will seek inspiration from his win over former world number nine Fabio Fognini at Wimbledon last year.

The winner of this match will play either Jannik Sinner or Marton Fucsovics in the Australian Open fourth round.

Play gets underway at around 2am GMT on Friday and will be contested over the best of five sets on Rod Laver Arena.
