Stefanos Tsitsipas said that Carlos Alcaraz‘s arrival is making achieving his major goal more difficult, despite the fact that he feels “really close” to winning a Grand Slam. Tsitsipas, 24, advanced to his second Grand Slam final at the Australian Open earlier this year.

Tsitsipas didn’t have much of a chance in the Melbourne Park final as Novak Djokovic defeated the Greek 6-3 7-6 (4) 7-6 (5). At the 2021 French Open, Tsitsipas had a two-set lead until Djokovic came back to win in five sets in his first Grand Slam final.

Tsitsipas: Alcaraz‘s appearance makes it more challenging as I draw near.

Because the Tour is so large and everyone is trying to reach that objective, “it is something that depends on me and a little bit on the others. Because I lacked the tiny bit of luck that is always required, I was unable to win the finals that I competed in at the moment.

I suffered similar ailment this year as well after participating in the Australian Open final, so if I want to win the next time, I’ll have to level up significantly. I need to get better at preparing; I know I’m almost there. I just need to keep going in the same direction and give myself the chance to keep fighting until I win another final.

The road to achieving that goal is lengthy, so right now I’m trying to be more consistent and get back as quickly as I can to take advantage of an opportunity like this,” Tsitsipas said, according to Punto de Break. Alcaraz is currently seen as a serious Grand Slam title contender after winning the 2022 US Open to become a Grand Slam champion.

Alcaraz‘s presence makes this objective slightly more challenging than it already is, but I enjoy that the hurdles are challenging. When something is overcome, it tastes better and is more satisfying than most things, said Tsitsipas. If Tsitsipas can achieve his significant Grand Slam breakthrough at the next French Open remains to be seen.
