Similarly to many other top players, Stefanos Tsitsipas has a burning desire to win his matches. The young Greek still struggles to contain his nerves every now and then, and something regrettable happened in Brisbane. After losing the first set at the breaker, Stefanos smashed his racket in full rage. Unfortunately, during the process, he also injured his father and coach that left the bench. Eventually, the Greek lost the contest in 3 sets.
I will probably be grounded. TSITSIPAS
After the match, Stefanos was obviously asked about what happened to comment:
“It happened accidentally, I didn’t mean to do it and straight away forgot about it and moved on from there.It happens, I wasn’t aiming to do that. It just went out of control, unfortunately. Maybe I’ll stay in my room for three days, grounded by my father,” he added, laughing.”
Tsitsipas ended his run at this ATP Cup after winning just 1 match of 3. However, his tennis looked pretty good. He will definitely try to have a great run at the upcoming Australian Open where he reached the semifinal last year.
