Stefanos Tsitsipas crashes out of Halle


Stefanos Tsitsipas crashed out of the Halle grass court tournament on Wednesday as top-seeded Daniil Medvedev made the quarter-finals despite admitting grass court specialists seem like “aliens” to him.

World number five Tsitsipas lost 7-6 (9/7), 7-5 to Chilean Nicolas Jarry, ranked 28 in the world.

It marks the third consecutive time the Greek has been knocked out in the second round of the Wimbledon warm-up tournament.

Tsitsipas on why he feels Badosa is the one

“I feel happy and content.

I haven’t really felt that type of connection with anyone before. I don’t mean to sound cringe or anything because that’s the reality and that’s what I am faced with. I am extremely blessed and happy that this came at this phase of my life.

I get to do what I love and I get to do it with someone who completely understands me and gets it. I have been very interested in her mind more than anything else. Of course, there is attraction but it’s also sometimes just a soul interaction and getting to fall in love with her mind.

It’s very rare that these things happen. It's like we share the same identity: same lifestyle, same desires, same passions, same ambitions. It's the same. It's wonderful to be a part of it and to experience it every day," Tsitsipas told Eurosport.
