"Players as Nadal play with your mind; you always have the feeling that you must play the best tennis against him, to make the ideal approach. It was the most difficult match I have ever played...you can't understand my relief (after three defeats in equal number of matches). It was incredible. I am really happy and the most important is that I won him on clay", Tsitsipas said.
The 20-year-old Greek, currently No8 in ATP rankings, is going to face Novak Djokovic ( No1 in ATP rankings) at the final on Sunday who defeated Austrian Dominique Thiem with 7-6, 7-6.
In the Caja Magica he will be playing his fourth final of the year, after picking up the trophies in Marseille and Estoril, as well as reaching the last round in Dubai. His performance in 2019 has allowed him to reach the top 10 of the ATP rankings, where he has been since March.
