https://www.atpworldtour.com/en/news/isner-tsitsipas-wimbledon-2018-fridayIt is the continuation of a history-making campaign for Tsitsipas, who was No. 192 in the ATP Rankings one year ago. The World No. 35 reached his maiden ATP World Tour final at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in April (l. to Nadal) when he was 18, becoming the first Greek to battle to a tour-level final since Kalogeropoulos at Des Moines in 1973.
Yeah that must be it. Waves.Maybe these things just go in waves.
He won Wimbledon just after turning 22. And then won three majors the following year.Remember how much flak Federer copped in his early career because he hadn't won anything?
I never thought of it like that. This changes everything.It's hard to win a slam. It's hard to make a final. It's hard to make a semi.
What a win , finally he beats Zverev after being down in the second set. I like his style of play, very natural.
Did anyone hear Zverev's press conference , saying the match was pathetic lol sore loser? He does sounds like a sore loser
I really like him, both as a player and off the court. He actually gave a brilliant description of Rafa after their match last week.Tsitsipas !
Not this year though
Asked about the biggest takeaways from his encounter with Nadal, the teenager said: “Of how much I have to work. How much gap there is between him and me in our games, and how much more I need to (do).
“Work more hours and become stronger and (a) more solid baseliner. And withstand pressures, physical pressures on the court that to him it just seems like nothing special. That’s the big difference between my game and his game.
“The patience that Rafa has is amazing. He never cracks. He will always grab you like a bulldog and always will have you — he will always make you suffer on the court.
“And it is amazing what he has built as a player. I mean, he was, you know, normal like all of us, and he managed to become this beast, this monster that he is today.”
Yeah there was a lot of buzz about him 4 years ago, and his progress has been very steady (although his 2016 Chengdu Open title run was quite startling). Few months younger than Medvedev, and about a year and a half older than Rublev.Talking about young players, another one to watch out for is Karen Khachanov. He was so close to winning 3rd and 4th set today against Nadal.
He has been pretty impressive in the last few months, unfortunately he had to face Nadal in the 3rd! lolYeah there was a lot of buzz about him 4 years ago, and his progress has been very steady (although his 2016 Chengdu Open title run was quite startling).
