Marcos Baghdatis, Former Grand Slam champion and mentor of Stefanos Tsitsipas tells Tennis Now that the Greek can learn from his difficult loss on Monday in Paris.
He also praised the performance of Holger Rune.
“Of course, I mean, pretty impressive,” he said of Rune’s win. “He reminds me a bit of Andre Agassi and taking the ball early, hitting very hard. And just use his more hand this drop shot.”
Baghdatis said that Tsitsipas has a lot to learn from his loss.
“Again, going back to that match, I think Stefanos, it wasn’t easy here at French Open,” he said. “He played four matches. I think he could have done better I think he wasn't in a good state of mind. And he wasn't at his best but still, I mean, well done for Rune.”
Baghdatis believes that Roland-Garros will provide Tsitsipas with more opportunities to win a Grand Slam.
“Definitely, I think that's a tournament that he can win,” he said. “I think he needs to learn from this year's tournament. I think it's very important to understand what went through in his mind in his game and why he had such a tough, tough tournament this year, and I think if you find the solution and see what you can learn from this tournament, I think it's a good lesson for the next few years.”
