WATCH: Stefanos Tsitsipas defeats Mikael Ymer in the 2022 Roland Garros third round.


Stefanos Tsitsipas is well known for his philosophical approach to post-match press conferences, and his responses are normally as thoughtful as they are thought-provoking.

But after cruising into the fourth round at Roland Garros, he was asked one question that left him well and truly stumped.

Check out our Roland Garros Quote of the Day, courtesy of last year’s finalist:

STEFANOS TSITSIPAS: Do you have a "Best Question of the Year Award" from ATP? I can give it to you straight away. Oh, my God. Ooh-la-la.

It happens to you that the question is so good that you can't answer it? Good question.

After giving the topic more thought, the 23-year-old found that the answer to some of his biggest questions in life can be found on the practice court. Tsitsipas, who is bidding to reach his second consecutive Grand Slam final at Roland Garros, has been on a steady upward trajectory over the last few years, but the world No. 4 knows there’s always room for improvement.

“I have questioned myself, how do I become a better athlete?” he said, citing the consistent high level of the Big Three as a major inspiration in his own career.

“I question myself, really, what can I add to my life that can eventually help me achieve more and do more and do better in terms of my career?”
