Stefanos Tsitsipas: 'I thought of myself as Cristiano Ronaldo'

Stefanos Tsitsipas fought a lot to overcome Roberto Carballes Baena. The Greek player prevailed in three sets, 6-7, 6-2, 7-6, after being down 1-3 15-40 on serve in the early stages of the third set and then 0-3 in the tie-break.

Explaining his "mental" tactic that turned the match around, Tsitsipas said: 'I thought of myself as Cristiano Ronaldo. In those cases, if the mental streak is negative and you do not make an effort to fight, it's really difficult to win this kind of matches.

I won seven consecutive points in the tie-break. It was a tough match.' The Greek will play Joao Sousa in the semi-finals on Saturday. Tsitsipas is aiming to reach his second final in as many weeks. Source: Bola Amarela.
