I had a really bad match at Wimbledon which was quite unlucky for me. I played a lot of matches last year.

US Open 2019

After talking about Wimbledon, Stefanos also talked about his US Open performances –

I really don’t know what to say about the US Open. I think I was quite unlucky also with the draw at the US Open. I played Andrey Rublev, who was in top form at that period of time. I felt like we’re quite equal in that particular moment. There were just a few points I didn’t play correctly, and he used the upper hand and won in four sets. That was a match I was a bit stressed about playing. I had a bad loss at Wimbledon. It affected me a lot. But despite that, I didn’t really play a bad first round at the US Open.”
