Greek tennis player Stephanos Tsitsipas commented on reaching the final of the tournament in Dubai.
“To be honest, I didn’t expect anything special from myself, I just played. I tried my best to break the tempo too much. I usually run after every beat, but today I had a feeling that the body would break if I did that. Probably, Monfils understood it, but he made mistakes. He had break-points to lead 5/3 in the third set.
I added compared to last year. For me it is very important that I beat the strong players, tennis players, who were in the Top 10. I myself wanted to sometime enter the top ten, and today I succeeded. Probably, this is also a special day for Greece, “the Tour press service quotes Tsitsipas.
