I’m just living the dream

I’m just living the dream

 

[Australian Open TV]

Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Spain’s Roberto Bautista Agut in four sets to continue his superb run in Melbourne and reach the Australian Open semi-finals.

At 20 years and 168 days, Tsitsipas is the youngest man to reach the last four of a Grand Slam since Novak Djokovic at the 2007 US Open.

The Greek 14th seed won 7-5 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7-2) in three hours and 15 minutes.

He will face 2009 champion Rafael Nadal in the last four after the Spaniard beat unseeded American Frances Tiafoe.

“It all feels like a fairytale almost. I’m just living the dream, living what I’ve been working for,” he said.

“I feel a bit emotional but not too much because I know I really worked hard to get here.”

Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to go beyond the fourth round of a Grand Slam when he knocked out six-time champion Roger Federer to reach the quarter-finals.

“Just believe in your dreams. If you have dreams, don’t give up. Belief is the most common word to me, even more than hope. For one, to achieve his dreams, he needs to truly believe in them.”
