"I need time to process what happened in this match. I absolutely didn't expect to complete a comeback like that because for a set and a half I was practically lost in the middle of the court. I had never felt those sensations before on a tennis court. tennis, a wave of negativity invaded me and did not allow me to play normally. I gave everything to reverse this situation and I managed to overcome a situation that I consider extreme."

The Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas is now one of the main favorites for the final victory at the ATP Masters 1000 in Rome. The Greek struggled and won in a comeback after a real battle against the German Jan-Lennard Struff. During the match Tsitsipas appeared nervous several times, frustrated by some shots that he was unable to land. Furthermore, given the situation with various champions injured and Novak Djokovic not appearing to be the same as in years past, Tsitsipas is one of the big favorites both in Rome and subsequently in Paris for the Roland Garros. In the post match the Greek tennis player talked about this and much more.

"I have to improve a lot in terms of mental strength, I can't let myself be overwhelmed and lose concentration like I understood in the last match. I have to play with continuity, it's the only way to compete with the best," he told.

Tsitsipas won also the 3th round match against the British Cameron Norrie in straight sets, with the final score of 6-2 7-6(1) and now he will face Alex De Minaur in the 4th round. The tennis circuit is going through a difficult period due to the many tennis players struggling with mental problems due to a busy and busy schedule In recent days Tsitsipas has announced among other things - or rather his ex-partner Paula Badosa has done so - the end of his relationship with the Spanish tennis player.
