Stefanos Tsitsipas: At some point in the match with Nadal, I lost hope

Grek Stefanos Tsitsipas commented on his victory over Spaniard Rafael Nadal in Madrid and the upcoming meeting with Serb Novak Djokovic.

“The victory over Rafa is very important for me. It was one of the best matches of the season. I am glad that I continue to fight, catch the rhythm and reveal my potential. Incredible sensations. Now I feel incredible relief. At some point in our confrontation, I lost hope of success. I lost Nadal three matches in a row, I just could not help it. But I overcame this psychological barrier. And the victory over him on the ground becomes even more special.

The secret of my success lies in the psychological discipline at key moments. I had to use every chance because Rafa does not give anything for nothing. In the final, I will have another difficult match. Djokovic is now playing at a good level. This week he won some good victories, so you need to be prepared for anything. I have no doubt that he wants to win this trophy as much as I do, “the ATP press service quotes Tsitsipas as saying.
