On February 19, Stefanos Tsitsipas, having lost almost his hands to Daniel Medvedev in the semifinals of the Australian Open, stated “I am not yet ready to win a Grand Slam tournament. It is a matter of time, it will come at some point. In one, two, five, ten years, we do not know when, but it will come”.
In the end, the opportunity he was looking for came much faster than he expected in Melbourne, as 4 months after that hard defeat, Stefanos after a magical appearance defeated Alexander Zverev in the semifinal of Roland Garros, and will claim the title on Sunday afternoon against either Djokovic or Nadal.
And all this after an epic battle with Alexander Zverev that lasted almost 4 hours with the two tennis players offering an incredible spectacle.
