Stefanos Tsitsipas defeated Felix Auger-Alliassime and thus advanced to the 3rd round of the Rolex Sanghai Masters Tournament. The game was tough enough as Tsitsipas himself said, who won 7-6 (3), 7-6 (3) in a race of 2 hours and 3 minutes. The next one that Stephen will face is Hubert Hurcacz.
In particular Tsitsipas said:
“I knew it’s going to be tough, and it was very tough. I think, mostly, the concentration that I have put and the work that I have put into that match, I still felt like I had to put a lot in order to get that outcome at the end.”
“I know that in order to see my name among the [big] titles, I’m going to have to go through a lot of pain and a lot of hype and struggle,” said Tsitsipas. “I’m honestly excited. I’m excited. I’m excited by the idea of trying to get there.”
We look forward to seeing Stefanos’ run in the aftermath of the Shanghai tournament.
