Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek tennis player’s run in the Paris Masters came to an ending after a loss to the in-form Frenchman, Ugo Humbert in the second round. Additionally, the current world number 6 seemed tired and was struggling in the marathon match. Besides, the match went on for over three hours.
Tsitsipas was disappointed with the performance and shared that his injury at the Roland Garros started to affect him during the second round. Besides, adding that while the injury wasn’t really serious. It kind of involved him. And added, ”I was not sure if it is good for me to be out there.”
However, the 22-years old Greek player said that obviously, this is not an excuse. Moreover, adding that ”I still fought and gave my best out there. And despite this thing that I had on the court.”
Will Tsitsipas Defend London Title?
Also, while Tsitsipas has been performing well, the player from Greece has been defeated by narrow margins in quite a few matches recently. Additionally, he also lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the Vienna Open, which also was as close as it can get.
While Stefanos played his almost best, the Frenchman has been having a good time on the tennis court, and he will now face Marin Cilic to book his place in the quarter-finals.
Additionally, Stefanos was also to play in London, where this year’s ATP Finals will hold. However, now with the injury, he is not sure if he will be able to enter the court. Besides, Stefanos Tsitsipas is also the defending champion in London.
Moreover, Tsitsipas was seeded second in Paris Master, which is the last ATP Masters event of the year. And in the absence of Novak and few others, the player from Greece was expected to go long in the tournament. However, his run in the tournament has now come to an end.
