In an interview, as quoted by ATP, Stefanos Tsitsipas spoke about the future of the game. The Greek player believes the changing of the guard will soon happen. “At some point, we will see change. I mean, it can’t be that Rafa (Nadal), Roger (Federer), and Novak (Djokovic) win everything.
I know that in order to see my name among these titles, I’m going to have to go through a lot of pain and a lot of hype and struggle. I’m honestly excited. I’m excited by the idea of trying to get there”.
He also spoke about his passion: “Photography for me is a way to shape human perception, a creative outlet which lives in the present and pushes you to discover yourself." He is no longer checking social media: "I feel much more connected than before with people that I care about.
I spend more quality time. I feel more human and more like me than ever before. I feel like I can also concentrate more on the sport that I play”. Asked if he regrets Paris Masters withdrawal, Federer replied: "A break is nice.
So the daily life of tennis is a bit easier. I have no problems with the body, I am motivated, I am hungry and I hope it will be a good fondamentale. You may take more painkillers toward the end of the season. Outside it's cold, which makes things worse.
So you need a lot of positive energy to play well. But now I feel very well, it's a privilege!" Federer lost the first match of the ATP Finals to Dominic Thiem on Sunday. Novak Djokovic and Thiem are currently the leaders of the Bjorn Borg group, with Federer and Berrettini following suit. The first matches of the Andre Agassi group will be played on Monday.
