Tsitsipas hopes Alcaraz won't like playing against him despite his H2H record – Tennis Tonic

Stefanos Tsitsipas expressed his determination to make Carlos Alcaraz feel even better on the court in the upcoming match, even though the head-to-head record speaks in Alcaraz's favor.

“Well, he has said in the past that he enjoys playing against me, so I hope he enjoys it a little less next time,” Tsitsipas noted. “I hope I can maybe get him to the stage where he gets the feeling that maybe it's not so comfortable playing against me.”

Tsitsipas is focused on creating opportunities and wants to repeat the exciting atmosphere of his recent matches. “That's my goal for the match and I hope that I have opportunities that I can take advantage of and that I can create a great atmosphere like today. These are the moments I wait for as a tennis player,” he added.

The upcoming clash promises to be an exciting encounter as both players give their best on the court and Tsitsipas is keen to change the dynamics of their rivalry.
