Roland Garros Day 9 Recap: Zverev and Tsitsipas, controversy and revenge!

The defeats of Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev at the Roland Garros 2022 4th round made a lot of noise. Iga Swiatek reached the quarter-finals in Paris, but how many mistakes in the first set! Stefanos Tsitsipas said after the defeat how ridiculous his performance was: "Holger Rune has a great serve but he's not John Isner.

I offered a ridiculous performance, I was stubborn then not to change strategy. I didn't change and in the end I paid. dear this choice, now it's late. Pressure for the scoreboard? Honestly I never look at the scoreboard and I don't know who my opponent will be before the match.

The defeats against Alcaraz and Rune? Both started from the bottom and I too found myself in the their situation but now I want to beat them. Now that I have lost against them I want to do the same and take revenge on the next challenge!

" Alexander Zverev, on the other hand, harshly criticized the organizers of Roland Garros, who, according to the German, would favor Carlos Alcaraz: "It is clear that Alcaraz is the new face of tennis, but the program should change.

things and who wants to see the organization of the tournament win. "

The best and the worst from the Parisian Slam

Zverev's controversy is clearly addressed to the tournament organizers, who have scheduled several matches in Alcaraz during the evening session.

According to what Zverev declared, the desire to propose to the public the challenge between Alcaraz and one between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal would go beyond common sense. Goran Ivanisevic instead expressed himself about Novak Djokovic and his programming in an interview with Sport Klub: "People must understand that it is not easy to prepare for something that you do not know if you will be able to play.

Before Monte Carlo I didn't even know if he could compete, not creating the right incentives to train at the best. Then he too got sick. In my opinion he should never have gone to Monte Carlo. He wasn't good at the energy level.

Later Belgrade helped him: he was improving game by game. In the final, against Rublev, he had an energy block. Trust me, 95% of people would never have returned if Australia had happened to them. He was able to get back in a few weeks. "
