Tsitsipas is the real deal

I really want him to win the whole thing. Like Brad said, with the level of Federer today he would beat 95% of players on tour and Tsitsipas were able to beat that. Just amazing.

I wondered about that statement and then realised Brad is right because 5% is already a high percentage as far as encompassing the elite of ATP goes. Basically Fed was lousy in the clutch and repeatedly lost his rhythm in baseline rallies. It was kinda like Millman USO all over again albeit not quite so bad. So I don't think it says much about Tsitsipas' potential greatness and how many hypothetical slams he's going to win. Might win some when Djokodal are done.

His backhand is garbage, especially on the return. All Fed had to do today was keep serving to his backhand (which he did with a lot of success) and take a few of his chances on the return (which he didn't in typical Fed style). Nadal will mercilessly destroy the Greek.

He had a great, day showed good mentality more importantly.

Many players this generation have an opportunity to take-off and starting taking the slams.

Let's see.

No, he doesn’t have the game to become an ATG. I’m going to remember this post for future reference. He’s good but not ATG-good. He’s no Fedal, he’s nothing to fawn over. The only thing he’s got going for him is that his peers absolutely suck ****.
