Stefanos Tsitsipas Trolls Alexander Zverev After Beating Him- “I Don’t Really Have to Do Many Things to Break Him”

The Greek tennis player, Stefanos Tsitsipas suffered painful defeat by falling to Dominic Thiem in the finals of China Open 2019, and in the semi-finals, he eliminated the second seed, Alexander Zverev. Tsitsipas was questioned about his back-to-back victories against Sascha and he said, he doesn’t really have to take the extra mile to topple the German ace. Just by defending the ball at every point the job is done.

“I feel like I don’t really have to do many things in order to either break him or to go the extra mile in my game. I just have to play simple and be productive. It’s not the case with many other players,” Stefanos Tsitsipas said.

Stefanos Tsitsipas has now won three consecutive times against Zverev out the four times they locked horns and in Beijing, it was the second victory of the Greek against Sascha in 2019.

During their recent match in China, Sascha Zverev had numerous opportunities to take the opening set, but his faulty tennis at crucial points denied him from getting hold of the set. He was an early break up in the opening set and later had three set points in the tiebreaker. However, his doubles faults and unforced errors fend off the first set.

In the China Open finals, the Greek lad pulled off the opening set against Dominic Thiem and later led by a break in the second set. Falling through to consolidate the break of serve in the second set and the warrior-like version of Thiem manifesting on the Chinese court, the final battle between the two new era contenders stretched out. Thiem took 54 minutes to close out the second set.

With his fourth title of the year in China, Thiem tied the premiere position alongside Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal on the list of ATP Tour Title Leaders. Roger Federer and Daniil Medvedev are on the second spot with three titles in hand.
