President of the Russian Tennis Federation Shamil Tarpishchev commented on defeat Karena Khachanova in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
“Karen wasn’t enough physically. He sat down, stopped comfortably approaching the ball, made mistakes. And Shapovalov played great, served well. Probably, due to this he won. But physics decided more here. We need to work further, ahead of the Olympics.
If there were three sets on the Grand Slam, everyone would be in the semifinals. Physically, Karen was not enough, the speed dropped. Shapovalov played faster and served well. If you cannot pin down your opponent, then you are pinned. But it’s still a success, the Wimbledon quarterfinals. We need to diversify our game, but Karen nevertheless proved himself worthy. Then the Olympics, now the guys will have a camp in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, “- quotes Tarpishchev” Championship “.
