Stefanos Tsitsipas: Rafael Nadal should feel ‘immortal’


I think we are used to Rafa not being able to play and win multiple Grand Slams or tournaments. Here, I think the opponents need to be more careful. When he says he can’t play and has leg problems, I feel like this is where he looks the most threatening in terms of his game.

“It’s actually a kind of reverse psychology. I have a lot of respect for what he did at the French Open with that foot. It kind of makes him feel immortal because of the things he can pull off.”

“Matches, the level of intensity he can reach at moments where it’s very uncomfortable, most players would not be physically comfortable competing in those conditions,” Tsitsipas said.

Tsitsipas vs. Richard

Stefanos Tsitsipas won the Mallorcan championship after beating Roberto Bautista Agut in three sets on Saturday as they prepared for the All England Club’s grass courts.

Tsitsipas’ first grass court title on the ATP Tour arrives ahead of the start of Wimbledon on Monday.

The second-placed Greek survived the last draw in the deciding set, beating Bautista Agut 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (2) to claim his 40th win of the season.

His ninth career title was also Tsitsipas’ second of the season after he retained his title in Monte Carlo in April.

Tsitsipas, sixth in the rankings, drew with Alexander Ritchard of Switzerland in the first round of Wimbledon.
