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.

Im the biggest of Rafa fans but I have to give Stefanos the utmost of respect for this comeback today. The mental strength he showed to come back from the brink of defeat is admirable

To pull out a comeback like this against Rafa on the big stage is just too good! He'll be Great!
M H:
Hope AO 2021 title will be remembered as the beginning of Stef’s great career.
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!

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

What an epic come back. I'm so happy for Stefano despite being an avid Rafa fan. Credit to him, great person on and off the court and inspiration for the new generation of tennis players. Well done Stefano, enjoy this very special moment. You deserve it. 👏👏👏🙌

Good job Stefanos.
Good luck in semis.
Μπράβο στεφανε you have made all greeks around the world proud.

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

A huge win for Stef! He closed out the match when Rafa had the advantage! That takes a lot of mental strength!
He was in a perfect state of flow.

Best press conference ever: thank you Tsitsipas!
Dem DDM:
Reporter: how do you compare today’s win with the win against Federer ?
Tstsipas: I like playing in Rod Laver Arena

WTF 😅🙃
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.

It would seem that Stefanos has been “destroyed enough” finally to win 😂
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.
Medvedev past rant "Stefanos, look at me, talk to me". would love to see these two play.

Winning Nadal in a GS with a deficit of 2-0 sets ?! Mission impossible ... historic match.

Why having stereo audio in this kind of conferences?? It's annoying with headphones plus the interviewers breath heavy
10:38 "The absence of the crowd kept me serene"...What about making it permanent?

That's the secret to life...
Live in the moment and look where

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.

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

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
Stephanos seems to have a high IQ and EQ
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.

He is an amazing tennis player. But I'd suggest he's a philosopher-king first.

"You f#@ing Russian" is next.
Titsapis gives Medvedev a serve after a loss in one of their very first meetings. Medvedev wanted to fight but the Greek hurried off the court. Hilarious to watch.
I think there's going to be a bit of bad blood between the two in his next match for sure

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.

Manisha Masbe:
Congrats to Stefanos. It was a great game and a masterpiece from the start! After 2 sets a player who has been in the top 10 for over 15 years leads !! I think if Nadal hadn't made the extra points on serve, he would have lost a lot sooner !! How convinced R.Nadal was after the 2-0 lead !!

There was so many unforced errors from Nadal in the 4th and 5th sets which is so unusual. I wonder what happened.
Such a mental game, all these guys are incredible athletes and have super nerves! Tsispasis is getting stronger physically and mentally. Great player, cool guy!

The guy breathing heavily in the background is quite distracting
Tsitsipas game reminds me of Federer. Specially his single handed backend... He is fast becoming my second favourite player after Federer.
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
