Stefanos Tsitsipas happy with form, but admits: ‘I still feel I’m far from being consistent’

Stefanos Tsitsipas says he is ‘always trying to reach a level of perfection,’ and he sees no reason why he can’t win the French Open. 

Tsitsipas has been in fine form this year, reaching the finals of Acapulco and Barcelona, as well as winning the Monte-Carlo Masters.

He also impressed at the Australian Open, where he was a semi-finalist, meaning he heads to Paris in the best form of his career so far.

The key to that improvement has been a better level of consistency, and he knows that will be more important than ever the closer the gets to the top.

“I still feel far from being consistent, compared to other players,” Tsitsipas admitted.

“I have been quite consistent, but there is a fine gap that I can close. I am always trying to reach a level of perfection, which I have yet to reach yet.

“I am happy to stay in the lead in the [FedEx] ATP Race To Turin. I need to find a little more consistency this year.

“I have a lot of points and I feel I need to earn more in the second half of the year in order to reach the goals and expectations for the year. I know the second half of the year will be difficult.

“I definitely feel better physically than I did last year. I have developed routines and habits in order to improve my consistency and ensure that I am mentally there in every single match that I play.

Tsitsipas’ immediate goal will be to win the French Open, and after reaching the semi-finals last year he knows it is a realistic target.

“A lot of players have been playing great, but it may not translate into the French. I need to concentrate on the French, more than any other big event.

“I feel [that] I’m in a position I’ve never been in before, so it’s exciting. I want to try and replicate my form, but I know it’s two weeks of hell. It’s difficult, but I want to stay focused on my goal.”
