The Greek has already found his spark through much of the clay-court swing, becoming just the sixth player to defend his Monte-Carlo Masters crown, before a quarter-final defeat to Carlos Alcaraz in Barcelona, a semi-final loss to Zverev in Madrid and a runner-up showing to Djokovic in Rome.
“I have shown good tennis here. I have shown good tennis in the last couple of tournaments,” he said.
“I didn't really show my best tennis in the final a few days ago… When you're overconfident, that can turn against you. When you're not confident, it can also turn against you.
“So looking for that sweet balance is the key for me. It comes with my daily routines. It comes with the feedback that I receive and analysis that I do and the implementation of it on the court in practice, and that's where I know my current state, which right now is at a good level.”
