Melbourne - Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas lavished bucket loads of praise upon American superstar Serena Williams after his 4-set opening round Australian Open win in Melbourne.
After practicing with Williams after the recent Hopman Cup he was suitably impressed.
"She was practicing really good. I would probably say even better than some of the male players I've been practicing with. She's not easy."
Tsitsipas was also impressed with some of the off-court qualities she brought as well.
"Her attitude. She has a different approach than any female players I have met."
"She has a lot of confidence in herself. Like she really knows what she's doing on and off the court."
"She's a lovely person outside the court. Just this attitude that she has of hating to lose."
