Corretja: “How much do you practice because you’re playing doubles and mixed? What’s the reason you play the whole competition here?

Stef: “It’s all because of love. It is if you think about it. On both sides. It all has to do with love. Getting to combine love and tennis is quite exceptional. I have to say”

Corretja: “I’m getting very emotional I have to say”

Tsitsipas was particularly pleased with his shot placement and consistency, calling it one of his best performances of the tournament so far. He now faces Italian qualifier Matteo Arnaldi for a place in the quarterfinals.
