Tsitsipas has now faced Alcaraz six times without success. Reflecting on the match, he expressed his admiration for Alcaraz’s abilities, comparing him to Novak Djokovic in terms of strategic play. “He controls the ball so well and can change direction effortlessly,” Tsitsipas said. Despite his best shots, Alcaraz always had better responses, leaving Tsitsipas frustrated and acknowledging his limits.

Alcaraz’s dominance continues

The calm demeanor of Tsitsipas in the post-match conference was telling. He knows he has a lot of work ahead if he hopes to break his losing streak against Alcaraz. He pointed out the exceptional quality of Alcaraz’s shots, which are long, deep, and heavily spun, making it difficult for Tsitsipas to counter effectively. “He surpasses me in power but does so intelligently,” Tsitsipas admitted.

Tsitsipas’ confidence shattered

Tsitsipas entered the match with high hopes, especially after a strong performance against Matteo Arnaldi. He felt more confident than usual, believing he could bring something new to the table against Alcaraz. However, the young Spanish sensation proved to be an insurmountable obstacle. “This kid is just too strong,” Tsitsipas lamented.

Seeking a breakthrough

Leaving Paris, Tsitsipas is left with many questions about how to overcome the Alcaraz puzzle. He knows he must overcome a significant mental barrier. “It felt like there was a voodoo doll on the court today,” he said, illustrating the psychological challenge he faces against Alcaraz.

The loss is a bitter pill for Tsitsipas, who envisioned a deep run at Roland-Garros. He remains determined to break his losing streak against Alcaraz and is already looking ahead to future opportunities. “I just need to get past this mental block,” he concluded, hoping for a breakthrough in their next encounter.
