In a YouTube video, Stefanos Tsitsipas shared a funny anecdote that happened after winning the Laver Cup in Geneva alongside Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Tsitsipas revealed his teammates forced him to drink alcohol: "It was disgusting, it was so bad, I didn't like it at all.
Mama, they forced me to do it. I will show you the video—they were screaming my name." His father and coach Apostolos added: "I'm telling you, the best drink is not vodka. It's gin. You will like the gin.
Gin-tonic might be good for you." In a press conference at the China Open, Tsitsipas analyzed his final loss to Dominic Thiem: "It hasn't been anything in particular that I didn't do right. I was one point away from winning that match.
At 4-All, I was feeling very well at that moment. Kind of like ruined me after that point. I don't know why. I shouldn't have stayed back. I should have taken the return a bit earlier. I didn't do it, so I paid for it."
Looking at the positives, he concluded: "I did some good matches against top players. I can leave here with that in my mind. Pretty much it. Nothing more, nothing less. I feel like I gave a good performance this week. Could be a bit better, but it didn't happen. Going to have to continue doing what I'm doing, get a bit luckier, wait for my chances."
