The former champion, Stan Wawrinka reliving past glories at fourth round match of the ATP Roland Garros tournament. Taking the win over Stefanos Tsitsipas. 7-6, 5-7, 6-4, 3-6, 8-6. The match statistics showing only one point between the two players 194 – 195.
A fully charged atmosphere from a crowd who watched on as the match unfolded in unpredictable style.
No one could have predicted the outcome based on the players’ performance throughout the match, especially the final set. Every shot played with vigilance, creativity and intangible feel. Both players holding their serve and focus to the very end, leaving not an inch of the court untouched. It was a physical and mental display of pure brilliance.
In the fifth set Wawrinka found himself with two match points, losing the first but then winning the match on the next shot, that technology deemed in by a fraction.
Wawrinka victorious, demonstrating what was possibly his best performance since surgery back in 2017. He is now set to play the legend, Roger Federer, on Tuesday.
Tsitsipas, absolutely exhausted, in his post match interview said… “It’s the worst feeling ever being in my position. Losing is just the worst!” His body language leaving nothing to the imagination.
It takes two to make a great match and Stefanos delivered an epic performance to be proud of. At only 20 years of age, and already demonstrating the skill and mental strength to perform at the highest level in the sport, I think it’s safe to say tennis has a very exciting future.
Success is no accident and these players demonstrated what it takes given the technical, tactical, physical and mental margins were paper thin!
