A 22-year-old from Athens had an incredible run on the Mediterranean seashore. Over a week, Tsitisipas has exhibited the best standard of tennis in the Monte Carlo Country Club. Notably, the No.4 seed claimed his first elite title without dropping a single set on the Court Rainier III.
“I had an unbelievable week in Monte-Carlo. I can’t describe my feelings right now. I am overwhelmed by so many different emotions and nostalgia,” Tsitsipas said in his post-match interview.
Ultimately, Stefanos Tsitsipas stunned one of the best performers of the season, none other than Andrey Rublev, in merely 71 minutes(6-3, 6-3). Simultaneously, he took the lead(4-3) against Russian in their head-to-head.
Greek continued, “It is incredible that I am able to be in the position that I am. We both deserved to be in the final. We put on a great fight and a fantastic show… I would consider it as the (best) week of my life so far.”
Stefanos Tsitsipas Is Delighted With Winning His First Elite Title In Monte Carlo
Tsitsipas has been living in Monaco. It is for this reason that he is considering Monte Carlo Masters as his home tournament. Stefanos also emphasised that he was pleased to lift his maiden Masters 1000 title on his favourite surface, red dirt.
“The clay-court season couldn’t have started better. It is the best thing winning my first Masters 1000, and it is even more special doing it here on home soil in Monte-Carlo and doing it on clay, which is my favourite surface,” Tsitsipas expressed.
However, Stefanos Tsitsipas will compete at the Barcelona Open 2021. He is the No.2 seed in the main draw. In the ATP Tour calendar, Spain’s ATP 500 category tournament will occur from 19th to 25th April.
