😕Surely not the best way to start the year. Stefanos has been pulled off at 1st round in Marseille against the home player Mahut by 2 sets to love (7-5 7-6). The atmosphere in the stadium was sometimes too much uncorrect towards Stefanos because instead of clapping both players, sometimes it could be heard public that exulted also when Stef made an error.
Beyond this, if we analyse the match we can understand why Stefanos lost:
-Mahut made so much various shots that interrupt rallies and surprised Stef (going to the net, alternating slice and topspin shots)
-Stef was put into difficult situations in groundstrokes like doing running shots, the needing of making passing shots (he has not still a very quick footwork due to his height) -the low accuracy of 1st serve.
☡DO YOU AGREE? What does Stef need to improve? ☡ Comment below your opinion and let him know that we support everytime, better times will come!#tsitsifans #tsitsifast #gotsitsi #tsitsipas #marseille #open13 #open13marseille #letsgo - 3 minutes ago
