Stefanos Tsitsipas ahead of Wimbledon: I'm lacking matches

Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas has admitted that he is lacking matches ahead of Wimbledon. Tsitsipas, who is enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 4 in the world, has yet to play a match on grass this grass season. Tsitsipas’ last match came at the French Open, where he blew a two-set lead in the final against world No.

1 Novak Djokovic. “I haven’t really played much on grass. I’ve practised a couple of times,” Tsitsipas said. “I’ve played a few practice sets. I’m feeling all right on grass. I think it will take a few matches for me to start gaining more confidence.

I just want to see how every single match that I get to play here will evolve, and what are my opportunities going to be. “Right now I don’t think I had enough matches. I didn’t really have a lot of tournaments on grass.

I never really played more than a tournament before the Wimbledon Championships. I think for me, I’m a player that I rely a lot on playing matches, getting confident through the process of winning. I haven’t had that opportunity yet”.

Tsitsipas claims he loves grass

“Honestly, grass court is a surface that I love. But probably two years ago, I didn’t really have the best result, the result that I expected. It was kind of something that tore me apart.

I was a completely different person to who I am now”. Tsitsipas reflected. “I think I’m a player that can come to the net. I’m confident when it comes to serving and volleying, moving in. The surface has become slightly slower over the years.

[It] has been adapted more for baseline players, given the opportunity for baseliners, good baseliners, to dominate and do well on that surface,” Tsitsipas added. Tsitsipas has been handed a tricky Wimbledon opener as he is set to face American Frances Tiafoe in the first round.
