At the U.S. Open, there are so many moments, and for so many reasons, so many upsets, so many moments where the game looks completely different to how it looks at other times. The U.S. Open is often the place where dreams are made.
It’s where the future is forged, it’s where a lot of people hope to live out their dreams of becoming champions. But at this event, there are some who get left behind. People like Stefanos Tsitsipas, who’s a top-seed in singles and top-seed in the doubles.
It’s a familiar story at the U.S. Open.
This time, it’s the Tsitsipas family who’ve been left behind.
Tsitsipas’ parents were at the U.S. Open, and he was a seeded player in singles and a seeded player in the doubles. But he lost his first match. In his next, he was seeded in singles. In doubles, he was seeded as a top-seed.
And he fell.
This time, it’s Stefanos Tsitsipas who falls.
It’s a shock, a shock to almost everyone in the game. It’s a shock to everyone in the game because nobody’s actually seen the best Stefanos in the U.S. Open.
Even if you don’t care about Stefanos, or you don’t like him, he has to be a top-seed in the U.S.
