Stefanos Tsitsipas suffered his ninth straight loss to Novak Djokovic on Monday. Each time in important matches, with frustrating scenarios for the Greek. On TennisChannelAndy Roddick underlined the good performance of the 3e world player who is not enough to beat the man with 21 Grand Slam titles. To overcome the latter, something more is needed.
“Tsitsipas, in fact, plays very high quality tennis against Novak. I was with my wife watching the game and I thought I could relate to that, because Tsitsipas plays well, gets in those tight situations and has to be perfect. You are not allowed to miss a ball in the tie-break. Best of all time simply forces you to be the best, especially in the toughest times. I have empathy for what Tsitsipas is going through. It’s just really, really hard. I’m going to take a risk saying that, Djokovic is really good”analyzed the American with a touch of irony at the end of his statement.
Tsitsipas must now raise his head ahead of his decisive game against Daniil Medvedev on Wednesday.
