Tsitsipas' moving statement: "I was thinking about the 2 pilots during the match"
"I was thinking about the recently tragically fallen fighter pilots during the race. I was emotionally charged", revealed the Greek champion.
He added that the help generously offered by the public was also important.
"The public helped me. In the future, we can fill a stadium with 4 times as many people in an exhibition tournament, having already Grand Slam me and Maria Sakkari. As Federer and Zverev had done in Mexico. I have nothing to prove. I have a dream of winning the gold medal at the Olympic Games in all three categories, winning the four Grand Slams, the Davis Cup and reaching No. 1 in the world ranking."
