WATCH: Davidovich Fokina's dream run in Monte Carlo continues

Earlier this week, Peter Bodo said that Stefanos Tsitsipas needed to hit the reset button, and that Monte Carlo was as good a place to do it as any.

The button has been pushed—on Saturday, Tsitsipas topped Alexander Zverev 6-4, 6-2—and with a successful title defense, we can start thinking about the Greek in the same light we thought of him at this time last year: a bonafide contender at Roland Garros.

First, though, he'll have to do what no one, not even French Open champion Novak Djokovic, has able to do in Monaco: beat Alejandro Davidovich Fokina.

The 22-year-old earned his fifth win of the week, and third in three sets, over Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-3, rallying from a break deficit in the final set to advance.

"Davidovich Fokina has captured all of our hearts," said Tennis Channel's Paul Annacone, referencing the likeable Spaniard, "so he's going to need to have a big day, but he'll soak it up for sure."

More to come.
