'Roger Federer did not lose the match; Tsitsipas won it' - Mouratoglou

Serena Williams's coach Patrick Mouratoglou feels very satisfied and happy with Stefanos Tsitsipas's win over Roger Federer at the Australian Open. Tsitsipas regularly trains at the Mouratoglou Academy near Nice, France, with his coach and father Apostolos and Mouratoglou as well.

Speaking to SRF, "The Coach" said: 'I do not feel like Roger lost the game. I found an amazing Tsitsipas. He is an inborn player.' Tsitsipas joined a very exclusive club by beating Roger Federer at the Australian Open on Sunday.

The Greek is now the fifth active player who is leading head to head meetings against Federer, 1-0. Thanasi Kokkinakis and Evgeny Donskoy lead 1-0 as well, then Novak Djokovic (25-22) and Rafael Nadal (23-15).
