Tsitsipas Wimbledon

‘I am still very angry with what happened at Wimbledon’, admits Stefanos Tsitsipas


Stefanos Tsitsipas has admitted he is “still very angry” with his opening round defeat at Wimbledon ahead of his return to action this week.

The world No. 4 was upset 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 by unseeded American Frances Tiafoe in the first round of The Championships.

It was the 22-year-old’s third opening round loss in his four appearances at the All England Club to date.

Tsitsipas will make his return to competition at the Hamburg Open ATP 500 clay-court tournament – where he is the No. 1 seed – this week.

“I try to get the most out of every game. This match against Tiafoe is complicated. I am still very angry with what happened,” the Greek said in a pre-tournament interview.

“I came to Wimbledon with the idea of wanting to play a good role, to do a very different result from previous years, but it didn’t work.

“If I were someone who felt comfortable in situations like this, I wouldn’t dedicate myself to tennis. I always try to go higher and get the best possible result in every tournament I play.”

Tsitsipas was a runner-up in Hamburg in 2020 – losing to Andrey Rublev.
