Roland Garros, Tsitsipas: 'No more melatonin before a match'


Highlights: Stefanos Tsitsipas was beaten 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (7/5) by Carlos Alcaraz at Roland-Garros. The Greek blamed his lack of competitiveness on drowsiness, taken shortly before the match. The world No. 1 said he played "one of the best matches of (his) career" in the quarter-finals. The Spaniard will now face Novak Djokovic in the semifinals on Friday. The match will take place at the Stade de Roland Garros.

Stefanos Tsitsipas blamed melatonin, taken shortly before the match, for the lack of competitiveness with which he faced Carlos Alcaraz in the quarter-finals of Roland-Garros, suffering a heavy defeat. "He played well. It wasn't great tennis, but it played well. One thing I will try to avoid in the future is to take melatonin pills and take a nap just before a game, because it didn't go well for me," the Greek said at a press conference, still visibly shaken after the 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (7/5) knockout in just over two hours.
Alcaraz himself, world No. 1 and one of the main favorites at Roland-Garros this year with Novak Djokovic in Rafael Nadal's absence, said he played "one of the best matches of (his) career."
