‘I totally earned it – I’m playing good,’ says Stefanos Tsitsipas after moving into French Open semis

Stefanos Tsitsipas said that he ‘totally earned’ his French Open quarterfinal win over Daniil Medvedev.

The Greek is the in-form player on the ATP Tour this year, and he booked himself a place in the last four of the tournament with a straight sets win over the second seed on Tuesday.

He will face another tough test in the semi’s, where Alexander Zverev awaits, but for now Tsitsipas says he is happy with his form and has confidence it can hold.

“I’m playing good, that will show by itself,” Tsitsipas said after the match.

“I don’t think there’s a player out there that [knows] they can win the tournament. I’m pretty sure they all know that they can play well.

“Of course I’m playing good, and I think if I keep repeating the process, keep repeating the everyday hustle that I put [in], for sure there’s gonna be a reward, and why not?”

Tsitsipas had to fight off multiple break points throughout the match against Medvedev, but when he needed it most he found his aggression dug him out of trouble throughout.

“I felt like I was winning more points on my serve,” he said. “It felt like I had a clearer plan of what I was doing and of course that confidence came in in the tiebreak.

“That last game, he was up 40-0, I kind of stepped in and started attacking a bit more, being more aggressive, and it kind of paid off.

“He didn’t quite expect it I think, and it was a really good returning game from my side, and I think I totally earned it.”
