Stefanos Tsitsipas is confident that if his game is on he can take on any opponent at the moment.

The Greek advanced to the French Open quarter-finals after dispatching Pablo Carreno Busta in straight sets.

“I remember having faced him before,” Tsitsipas expressed in his press conference. “And I think every match against him was a learning experience.

“You know, I had high expectations from him and that’s a good thing. Going into a match having higher expectations than [how] your opponent might play.

“I think I also had a great start, where I didn’t let him attack that much. I didn’t give him space to get going.

“My performance was good, I was very mentally there every single game, whether I was serving or not, I was very concentrated.”

Stefanos Tsitsipas will next face world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev. The two men have faced seven times in the past, with the Russian leading the head-to-head comfortably at 6-1.

They have only met once before on clay, at Barcelona in 2018, where Medvedev did in fact win.

“Of course, myself playing well, I feel like I don’t have to think [about] against whom I am facing,” Tsitsipas said of his next match. “I just have to play my game and let the rest be witnessed.”
