Tsitsipas Loses, Still Aims for AO Crown

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas aimed to become Greece's first Grand Slam champion at the Australian Open final, but Novak Djokovic dashed his hopes with a 6-3, 7-6(4), 7-6(5) victory and a record 10th Australian Open title.

Despite the loss, Tsitsipas remained determined.

Tsitsipas acknowledged that losing the final was not a great feeling, but he was grateful for the opportunity to play in one.

He also credited Djokovic for helping him improve as a player, saying "Getting our asses kicked is for sure a very good lesson every single time."

At 24, Tsitsipas has a bright future ahead of him and is confident that he will achieve his goals. He said, "I don't see any reason to be lowering my expectations or my goals. I am born a champion. I can feel it in my blood. It's something that is within me."

Despite his loss in the final, Tsitsipas is determined to work on improving certain aspects of his game, but his confidence will remain unchanged.

In the final, Tsitsipas struggled with his serving and forehand, producing 27 unforced errors and only 11 winners.

Despite these challenges, he still praised Djokovic for his performance and acknowledged that playing against him has helped him become a better player. With his career ahead of him, Tsitsipas can look forward to clear air eventually when players like Djokovic and Rafael Nadal retire from the sport.
