I remember how confused and in shock Stefanos was after getting killed by Rafa a few years ago. Good to see the massive improvement.

I’m a huge Rafa fan, but hats off to Stefanos. Only two other players ever came back from two sets down in Rafa’s long career. Well done.

Why having stereo audio in this kind of conferences?? It's annoying with headphones plus the interviewers breath heavy

Congratulations to Stefanos! He's proven his worth as a top tennis player .. only the very best come back from 2 sets down to Rafa. He's so mature for 22 - smart, calm, modest and good-looking - a perfect role model for the tennis elite. I would love for him to win the championship - it would be so deserved. Good luck Stefanos! 🌟💯
At the end of set 2 i thought this will be another whipping , boy was i wrong. Rafa's draw was so easy before this match and i think that hurt him when he met a top player because he could not get away with those errors that he made in the breaker . Great match Tsitsipas!

I think what he was trying to say is that he played on instinct and didn't think too much... Great win. Bravo

A huge win for Stef! He closed out the match when Rafa had the advantage! That takes a lot of mental strength!
It's an incredible 2-year turnaround from their last meeting at AO where Stefanos was humbled. He's come a long way in such a short period of time.
Congratulations to Stefanos Tsitispas for that epic comeback! I'm thinking there's no way this match will end in straight sets. He stayed steady, composed and took he chances. I hope this will propel him to even greater heights, like getting to masters and grand slam finals and winning them! It's time for the tide to turn in the men's game. Well done, Stef.

Oh boy, I had falshbacks during set 3,4 and 5. It was kinda lika a nadal federer standoff.

Tsitsipas is physically one of a kind. He needs to be a little bit "smarter" on the court and improve mentally. That will come, he is still one of the youngest players on the tour(top 100). He will be ranked nr2/nr3 for many years to come.

Tsitsipas has been one of my favorite players for a while now. I hope he wins Australian Open. He has worked hard and deserves it

Once he stops sulking over points lost and focus on playing, he will be fine. That being said, my bet of him winning aus open still alive. xD

Stay humble and mentally strong always. Such a great win and looking forward to seeing you win your 1st grand slam in a few days. We are all so proud of you !!!
T H:
I noticed Tsitsipas started to hit with a little more topspin from set three, focusing on getting the ball in and making Nadal work for it more. Nadal seemed to lose energy, particularly from set 4 onwards. It reminded me of his loss to Medvedev in the ATP tour finals where Nadal got close to winning and then his level took a noticeable dip.

Kidding, he probably didn't mean it in general but in those specific matches.

Avinash Mohanlal:
I think Medvedev is going to be tricky because he doesn't get ruffled easily and keeps it simple.
He really did look soo calm when they were showing his face while in between games... Never seen him to zen before... If he keeps that up then look out... He could be the next greatest mens player

10:38 "The absence of the crowd kept me serene"...What about making it permanent?
Loved the "Not expecting too much and not expecting too little" comment. Amazing win Stefanos! Looking forward to the Medvedev match.

Seems he's contained with this win..which means another bitter lesson is coming on its way through Medvedev match! You just can't let your guard down at this top level.

There was so many unforced errors from Nadal in the 4th and 5th sets which is so unusual. I wonder what happened.

He played amazing honestly. And he could have been even better if he wasn't nervous. I know it's prolly hard to relax and be in the moment under that kinda pressure - it's good to know both players are typically feeling it tho! Great Job Stef

Happy for him. He earned this victory. Rafa will capture his 21st in style at the French Open.
Leo Smart
Leo Smart:
Most reporters at these post-match press conferences(not just today) ask such dumb questions , while leaving obvious issues about the match untouched. For example, throughout the first 2 sets, he clearly was not challenging Rafa, and not taking risky shots. Against players like the top 3, or even Medvedev and Thiem, if you simply try playing safe and hitting shots towards the middle of the court, they will quickly take control of the point. Likewise, you cannot repeatedly hit backhands to the same side, because Rafa is too good if he knows what's coming. After losing the two sets it looked like Stefano realized this and started aiming at the sidelines and switching between crosscourt and down the line shots, and this kept Rafa off balance and under constant pressure, and forced HIM to play defense. Yet no one asked about this, and whether this changed approach was instinctive or strategic.
