Stefanos Tsitsipas produced a blockbuster performance to reach the Australian Open semi-final on Tuesday and then sent out an invitation to actress Margot Robbie to come and support him.

The Greek surprised fans during his on-court interview by admitting he was a big fan of Robbie. “I like a lot of Aussie things. One of my favourite actresses comes from here, Margot Robbie,” Tsitsipas said. He added: “It would be nice to see her here one day,” confirming that it was an invitation for her to come and watch.

Beating anxiety

Victoria Azarenka said changing her mindset and conquering her anxiety had paved the way for her return to the semi-finals.

The 2012 and 2013 champion said later that she had been dealing with a fear of failure in the last few months. 

“I was at the point where I couldn’t find anything good about myself. I broke a few racquets after my match in Ostrava (in October),” Azarenka said.

“From then, I started with just trying to be neutral, not to go negative. Accepting the anxiety that I have. Accepting the fear that I have. Working through it. That was step by step.”

‘New’ Khachanov  Karen Khachanov said reinventing himself as a player had helped him breakthrough to the semi-final stage at grand  slams.  Khachanov burst onto the scene in 2018 when he won the Paris Masters but has had little success since. “I think I kind of reinvented myself,” said the world No. 20.
