Dominic Stricker has returned to impress after several months in a prestigious tournament, the US Open. Many Italian fans were amazed by him at the end of 2022, in the match against Lorenzo Musetti at the Next Gen Atp Finals.
The Swiss tennis player was able to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas in comeback after more than 4 hours of battle, with the final score of 7-5, 6-7, 6-7, 7-6, 6-3. An incredible game played by the 21-year-old, who surprised the New York crowd for the continuity in terms of shots, between serve and forehand, which she managed to maintain throughout the match.
But there is one thing in particular that amazed the fans of that game: in the last field change, which preceded the moment in which the Swiss served for the victory, Stricker enjoyed the break with a disarming calm and he also started singing the historic song I wish dance with Someone, by Whitney Houston.
The words after the victory
At the end of the match the Swiss declared: "I felt great from the first point and I enjoyed it from the start, I'm speechless. I had never beaten someone like Stefanos, number 7 in the world.
It's a very special day for me and the confidence will increase a lot after something like this, it's good to see that I have maintained this level even in a very tough fifth set." Then he explained the reasons for the success: "Off the pitch everything has become much more serious.
Maybe I'm working more than a year ago, everything has become professional by now and this helps me." Stricker has then reached the 3rd round, after beating in an epic battle Stefanos Tsitsipas in 5 sets.
