Of course Tsitsipas also praises Federer, saying, "I've been idolising him since the age of six...it's a dream come true to just be on Rod Laver facing him."
Tsitsipas is in no fit mindset to talk to Commissioner of Tennis John McEnroe, but he does let slip that he always thought he'd win this match. What a great attitude!
Tsitsipas's team are weeping. He looks stunned.
The NextGen champion has beaten the old guard! That tiebreak had everything, poor challenges from both players, great serving, mistakes from Tsitsipas off the Federer drop shot, and finally a return into the net on match point.

TSITSIPAS 6-7 7-6 7-5 5-4 FEDERER: Federer makes the passing shot and gets pretty much a standing ovation. Not enough, though, and Tsitsipas holds again. He needs to break and he wins. Easy.

And now Tsitsipas is having a leg massage.
Tsitsipas is having a chat with the trainers, and is indicating his left elbow!
TSITSIPAS 6-7 7-6 7-5 4-3 FEDERER: Ah, but they're moving OK on his serve! Galloping to the net, and feinting beautifully.
TSITSIPAS 6-7 7-6 7-5 3-3 FEDERER: Federer uses the drop shot, baffling Tsitsipas, who has suddenly stopped being able to move properly.
Tsitsipas is having a chat with James Keothavong - he's called for the trainer at the next change of ends. This could be big.
