He further added: “I enjoyed every single minute out there on the court with Stefanos and his father also his mother came to court to help us a few times. I never felt under too much pressure and there was always a good vibe even though the training was tough and strict.”

“There is something in that discipline and their approach to training that really resonated with me. This is maybe because I really like super high intensity but also a positive atmosphere during the practice,” Krnjetin said.

The Serbian also suggested that Stefanos Tsitsipas put in a lot of effort in his training as he indicated that he works harder than 99 percent of players as he became the top 10 players in the world.

He concluded: “Becoming one of the best in the world takes effort that most of the others don’t put in. It’s very logical. To become the top one percent, you need to work harder more than the other ninth nine percent.”
