Alex Corretja gave an interesting insight on Stefanos Tsitsipas's win over Roger Federer in the Australian Open fourth round on Sunday. Speaking on Eurosport about the Greek, the former world No.
2 said: 'He looked very impressive. The ball speed from both players. Tsitsipas could go for it all the time, not too many mistakes, while from the baseline Roger could not handle it too much. Tsitispas was playing forehand to forehand and not to backhand, that surprised me.'
Corretja also rated Federer's performance. According to the Spaniard, the Swiss should have adopted a different tactic: 'I have to say I was a little surprised that Roger did not look for other options, rather than to hit the forehand so fast and flat and make mistakes.
I think it would have better better to play a little bit high to Stefanos's backhand and then go forward. But when was hitting the slice, he let Tsitsipas go with the forehand and that was surprising. Because okay you need to cheap it but a little bit more aggressive.
Otherwise it flies a little bit and you give more time to your opponent.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
