Stefanos Tsitsipas gave what to talk about. The Greek, who is already preparing to face the last part of the season, appeared in an interview and left some resounding phrases. The future of the Big 3, how big is Novak Djokovic and his recurring trips to the bathroom, among other topics.
“Currently there is only one great player: Novak Djokovic. He continues to be the best in the world. But Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and I followed behind. We can become the next big three, I firmly believe in it, “acknowledged the 23-year-old tennis player according to the testimonies shared by the Sport Bild medium.
Regarding the Serbian, he added that “no one knows” how long he will play and said: “I still have a lot of confidence in him. Who would have thought that Roger Federer would still play at 40? I do not. But I’m sure it will appear again. “
One of the themes that put Tsitsipas in the eye of the storm during the season was his recurring trips to the bathroom at games, something that generated annoyance in some of his rivals, such as Zverev and Andy Murray, who complained about it.
In this sense, the N ° 3 of the world said: “My intention is not to disturb anyone’s rhythm, it is not a tactical tool. Anyway, I only look at myself and not the opponent. Even after winning a set 6-0, I went to the bathroom and changed my things. “
The explanation for why he goes to the bathroom and for so long? “It always has to do with external conditions. I never did it at the Indian Wells tournament because the conditions were so dry. I didn’t sweat that much as before in Cincinnati and at the US Open. The circumstances were different and I responded accordingly, “he commented.
It should be noted that Tsitsipas has just been eliminated in the second round of the Masters 1000 in Paris, where he only played six games and he had to retire on his debut.
This year accumulate two titles (Monte-Carlo and Lyon) and three lost endings (Acapulco, Barcelona and Roland Garros). The season started as the sixth best racket in the world and climbed three positions to establish itself in that position for more than three months. The last stop will be at the ATP Finals in Turin.
