After winning the Monte Carlo Masters 2022, Tsitsipas says, “I am very proud of myself. Things weren’t going well at one point, but I managed to stay composed to finish the match off. I am proud of the belief I put in my game. Sometimes you doubt yourself, but it is always important to keep your head high.”
He goes on and said, “He[Davidovich Fokina] fought in moments I didn’t expect him to fight. He can hit incredible winners out of nowhere and play unpredictably. But I was able to minimize that. I knew he would be a dangerous opponent but that is a great win for me. I think we will see great results from him in the future.”
