"Great day at the office" - Tsitsipas after win over Sinner

Stefanos Tsitsipas stood up and delivered Friday at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, overcoming Italian Jannik Sinner and a raucous home crowd to reach the semi-finals in Rome for the second time.

In front of vocal fans on centre court, the Greek kept his composure as he demonstrated great footwork to dictate with his forehand and move past the 20-year-old 7-6(5), 6-2 in two hours and 24 minutes. Speaking after the match, he said:

“I am happy things turned out well. It was a great day at the office. I was able to really step it up in the second set and I think the most important part was that first set tie-break. I really went for it when I had to. I didn’t overthink or hesitate and that paid off in the end.”

On facing Zverev, Tsitsipas said:

“We have similar game styles but he is one of the most difficult players to play against on the Tour. I have a lot of respect for him. He has achieved a lot so far and I try and look up to him with the things he has achieved.”
