Stefanos Tsitsipas put on quite the show at the 2023 United Cup court by covering an insane amount of court against David Goffin to defend and eventually secure a point during a third set tiebreak.
The Greek international moved from a return near net to another all the way beyond the advertising board, successfully returning back and eventually securing a point.
“I mean talk about athleticism,” stated the commentator on air.

The Greek international went on to win the game 6-3, 6-2 at the RAC Arena in Perth. Speaking after the game Tsitsipas, “I stayed calm, I stayed well composed,”
“In these moments, you have just got to stay in the moment. You cannot start predicting or thinking about the future. I managed that extremely well. I was able to serve big first serves. I didn’t let myself get back on defence, very rarely, and these moments define me.” the 24-year-old added.
In addition to this, Tsitsipas had also registered a win his doubles game with Maria Sakkari over Viktoriya Tomova in Perth.
“As Team Greece, I think we have never been stronger,” Tsitsipas said.
“We have a lineup of great players. We are extremely collaborative between each other. I think that is something that will give us big chances this year to start this first edition of the United Cup, and be part of history in a way.”
