The 20-year-old Greek tennis player talked about the fatigue and pain he suffered because of the last demanding games with Zevereff and Nadal, as well as his impressions of his play with Djokovic, namely:
«I felt fatigue and pain, not just on my feet but on my whole body. I am happy with my performance in the last two days, but at the same time I feel empty. Not disappointed. Perhaps a little, but not as often as possible. I’m so tired that my mind is not working. I can not think of anything now»,
He played smart. He tried to run me all over the stadium. He knew I played a hard game yesterday and took advantage of it. It made me run and suffer and I did not have solutions »
«He has the best backhand I’ve ever seen.»
Stephanos may have failed to overturn the match with Tennis King Djokovic, but once again he has made us proud and we are looking forward to seeing his brilliant future shining, climbing up, touching and conquering the Throne !
