‘I want Stefanos Tsitsipas to be better on his bad days,’ says Andy Roddick

Stefanos Tsitsipas is not currently good enough on his bad days to win Grand Slam titles, says Andy Roddick.

Tsitsipas is rightly regarded as one of the biggest young talents in tennis, with him being a fixture in the ATP Top ten for nearly two years now.

However, despite reaching two Grand Slam semi-finals, he has never truly looked like challenging for the major titles, and Roddick believes he has an explanation for that.

“I want Tsitsipas to be better on his bad days,” Roddick told the Tennis Channel.

“At his highest level is not in question right when he’s playing great and he’s flying high, the shot-making ability is there.

“I think that’s the only thing separating him from the top of the game right now is in the third realm – when he’s not quite feeling it he doesn’t have everything getting through that match.

“It is important for him, and he needs to kind of maybe learn how to do that a little bit better.”

Tsitsipas’ best performance in 2020 came at the French Open, where he put up a valiant fight before losing to Novak Djokovic in an epic semi-final.
