Tsitsipas Says His Grandmother Died Just Before French Final

PARIS — French Open runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas said Monday his grandmother died just before he played the final at Roland Garros  against Novak Djokovic.

Tsitsipas posted on social media that his "very beloved grandmother lost her battle with life" five minutes before he entered the court Sunday for his first Grand Slam title match.

He thanked her for raising his father and called her a "wise woman whose faith in life, and willingness to give and provide can't be compared to any other human being that I have ever met."

Tsitsipas continued: "It's important to have more people like her in this world. Because people like her make you come alive. They make you dream."

The 22-year-old from Greece lost to Djokovic 6-7 (6), 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
