Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas has been knocked out of the Australian Open following a loss against Taylor Fritz.

Last night, after an intense match of just over three hours, the world number 7 and 2023 Australian Open finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas was defeated by his American opponent Taylor Fritz, 7-6 5-7 6-3 6-3.

He commented on his performance, following his third-round defeat.

“It’s painful, and the moments of glory are not that many,” he said.

“There’s just way more moments in your career that are painful and tough to deal with, suffering and all that stuff, than moments of glory and success and opening champagne bottles.

“These are a very small percentage of what a tennis player lives on a yearly basis.” 

EuroSport.com reported that the now winner of the quarter-finals match, will go head-to-head in a match against Novak Djokovic who recently won his last three games against Adrian Mannarino, including two double-bagel wins.

The 26-year-old American said he felt that he “served well” throughout the match.

“I trusted my shots a lot,” Fritz said.

“It kept me in it as there were some games he was in that I could get out of with my serve. 

“At the end when I really needed it, I turned it up a level and played some of my best tennis to finish it.”
