"I hope there's going to be a reward" - says Tsitsipas on being two matches away from maiden Grand Slam
The Greek superstar repeated his success from last year at the clay major in Paris but he is hopeful that this year he can go further. He defeated Daniil Medvedev in strong fashion winning 6-3 7-6(3) 7-5 and moved on to the semifinals where he will face Alexander Zverev.
After the win he said:
"I'm playing good, and I think if I keep repeating the process, keep repeating the everyday hustle that I put, for sure there's going to be a reward, and why not."
Tsitsipas was playing a great match moving around the court superbly which is something his opponent can't really do at this surface. Medvedev tried to be aggressive but ended up forcing the issue too many times resulting in errors. Frustrated by everything Medvedev resorter to an underarm serve.
On that Tsitsipas:
"I felt like there was something coming up, so at that point, I think I got prepared for it," Tsitsipas said of Medvedev's underarm serve. "It's that less of a second when you realize something is about to change from a regular [serve]. It was fine. I mean, I [did] what I had to do."
