Pep Guardiola compares Manchester City’s final Premier League game to a Tennis serve

Manchester City’s boss, Pep Guardiola, likened the significance of their final Premier League match to a critical tennis serve, stressing the pressure and importance of the moment.

Following a convincing 2-0 victory over Tottenham, City climbed to the top of the league table. Their fate now hinges on their upcoming match against West Ham on Sunday, where a win would secure them a historic fourth consecutive league title.

Reflecting on the magnitude of the occasion, Guardiola drew parallels to the pressure tennis players face when serving to win Wimbledon, highlighting the intensity and tension surrounding the final game.

Acknowledging the weight of expectation, Guardiola urged fans to rally behind the team, emphasizing the significance of their support in this crucial moment.

With the opportunity to make history within reach, Guardiola expressed confidence in his team’s preparation and determination to give their best on the field.

“The tennis players say ‘the serve to win Wimbledon’, the last game, is the most difficult one,” Guardiola told BBC Match of the Day.

“We know what we’re playing for. The tension is there.”

No side has ever started the final day in second place and gone on to lift the trophy, which puts City in a great spot.

“Everyone come to the stadium and make noise,” added Pep Guardiola.

“We’ll have one day off, two days to prepare, and then we will do our best.”

As City stands on the brink of securing yet another Premier League title, Guardiola’s comparison underscores the gravity of the moment and the challenges they must overcome to emerge victorious.
