"Yeah, I watched her play a little bit. As you guys may know, we all have a group chat, so it's pretty funny everyone's like, 'oh my God, Sorana's like so good!' And I'm just there like, 'oh no, if I play her I'll probably lose.' But, hopefully I can get some practice in today and hopefully I can win."

STORY: Stefanos Tsitsipas showed off his gaming chops once again on Tuesday (April 28) breezing past Frances Tiafoe 3-0 to advance to the quarters of the virtual Madrid Open undefeated.

The Greek has emerged as one of the favourites to win the virtual edition of the Madrid Open along with Andy Murray and Diego Schwartzman who both also advanced unbeaten.

Tsitsipas will square off against David Ferrer in their quarter final match on Wednesday (April 29).

On the women's side, Bianca Andreescu advanced with 3-0 a win over Kristina Mladenovic, but admitted in her post-match interview that she's a bit worried to face the unbeaten Sorana Cirstea in their quarter final also slated for Wednesday.

Only half of the 16 men and 16 women remain to battle it out on a Manolo Santana Stadium that has been recreated in exquisite detail in the Tennis World Tour video game designed by Nacon Gaming.

Both the men's and women's winner will be awarded 150,000 euros ($162,000 dollars) of which they can choose to donate as much as they'd like to tennis peers struggling financially with the tour on standstill.

An additional 50,000 euros ($54,000 dollars) will be donated to the Madrid Food Bank.
