Speaking to a Chinese TV Stefanos Tsitsipas shared the keys behind his success over Novak Djokovic at the Shanghai Masters. The Greek player asked what made a difference, said: "My tennis first of all and my physicological on the court.
I remember being aggressive and serving very well so those things are something I should consider more in the future in order to keep beating those players and doing well against them. I am very happy and satisfied that I proved and show good tennis quality.
It is not easy, you go out there and try to do your own business. You just try to find a solution, that's how you beat those players. They are more experienced than you, they have won more Masters 1000 titles than you, you have to be fearless and play like you have nothing to lose", admitted the 21-year-old.
He also recognized that he was not aware that he had already qualified for the ATP Finals in London before facing Djokovic on Friday: "I had no idea going into the match that I had qualified and I am glad I did because that affected me.
I am really happy to be there, I was fighting for it. There are still plenty of tournaments where I want to do well, I am ready for that", concluded Tsitsipas who will play the Swiss Indoors in Basel next.
