Stefanos Tsitsipas, who lost to Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final on Sunday, was keen to look back on his tournament run after falling short in a winner-takes-all match to be awarded by both a first Australian Open championship and the world No. 1 ranking. The Greek, who would have ascended to No. 1 in the ATP Rankings with victory, put on a string of strong performances in Melbourne, giving him hope that his first major championship and ascent to the top spot are imminent. Let us check further details below.
“I’m simply pleased to be playing in another Grand Slam final. Naturally, I was daydreaming about winning the award and lifting it. I even had a dream about it the night before. There is a genuine desire. I want it so much,” Tsitsipas declared. But merely daydreaming about it won’t bring it about. Act now, you must. You must take action outside. You need to work harder and be more present. Playing in the championship game is unquestionably preferable to falling behind in the semifinals.
Sure, I’ll take that. I just need to make that final step to be able to routinely win Slams and Masters 1000 competitions and lift trophies. Since Hyeon Chung in 2018, no opponent has managed to defeat Djokovic at Melbourne Park. If Tsitsipas had won the Sunday final, he would have become the first player ranked in the top 10 to defeat the Serbian in his most successful major since Swiss player Stan Wawrinka in 2014.
“Today was my chance to become the world’s number one,” On the opposite side of the net, I faced a better opponent who performed tasks far more competently than I did”. Right now, he merits that position, Tsitsipas said. “What I can say is that after being on the tour for a while, I’ve had a lot of different experiences and encountered a lot of various challenges. It’s time for me to set goals along these lines. I don’t see any justification for compromising my standards or my objectives.”
“I’m a champion from birth. In my blood, I can sense it. As a competitive child when I was younger, I can still feel it. It’s something I carry within me”, said Stefanos Tsitsipas. Born on August 12, 1998, in Athens, Greece, the 24-year-old is a Greek professional tennis player. He has been ranked as high as world No. 3 by the Association of Tennis Professionals.
