Novak Djokovic: ‘Stefanos Tsitsipas has no holes in his game – he is an all-round player’

Stefanos Tsitsipas has been described as a ‘solid, all-round player with no holes in his game’ by world number one Novak Djokovic.

Tsitsipas produced the performance of his career to overcome a two-set deficit and beat Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open quarter-finals on Wednesday.

He now faces Daniil Medvedev for the right to play Djokovic in the final and attempt to win his first Grand Slam title.

Djokovic faced the Greek ace in the semis at Roland Garros last October and only just managed to sneak past him, so he knows exactly how good he is and how tough a match he can provide.

“Tsitsipas is also on a roll,” Djokovic told Eurosport. “He’s playing really well.

“He won a couple of matches in the ATP Cup against good opponents.

“He had a tough one against [Thanasi] Kokkinakis and Nadal and he managed to win those in five sets, which is very impressive.

“Even though a five-setter takes a lot out of your energy, it gives you a lot of confidence and makes you kind of feel better about yourself in the next match.

“He’s definitely going in the right direction. He’s a very solid, all-around player. He has no holes in his game.”
