Tsitsipas: “Roger Federer’s presence in the Laver Cup is a privilege”

Stefanos Tsitsipas arrived in New York to try to get a good result at the US Open 2022. The world number five arrives from a great week in Cincinnati, which did not end in the best way. In fact, overcoming Medvedev in the semifinals, he surrendered in the last act against Borna Coric in two sets, in a final that the same Greek he did not play at his best.

Cancel the final of the Masters 1000 to restart at the US Open: this is the goal of the Greek tennis player. The Greek number one in the pre-US Open press conference: “I am more than happy to be in New York. I enjoyed the training on these two days, they were good days of preparation.

I didn’t expect to make the final in Cincinnati. Here I find the warmest and wettest conditions. Everyone is fighting for the trophy, including me. My physical condition will be very important, I have to start the Grand Slam tournament strong.”

After the last Grand Slam, another appointment awaits Tsitsipas: the Laver Cup with Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, and above all with Roger Federer.

The Laver Cup and coaching

The Greek tennis player about the dream team: “It’s something legendary.

The Europe team seems like a joke. It is an honor to be a part of it. I don’t know how Roger is doing right now, but I’m happy to see him back on track. It is a privilege to have him on the team. The experience that you live in those three days is extraordinary because you have the opportunity to share great ideas, both on the pitch and off the court.”

Tsitsipas closed the press conference talking about a very thorny issue for him: coaching. The Greek insisted that nothing changes for him; on the contrary, he could also benefit from it: “Nothing changes, even if my coach was not as discreet as the others.

I received a lot of warming for coaching that I considered unfair. I am happy that it has now become a legal practice: so I will not have to deal with chair referees who are so strict and want to ruin the game.”
