Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of the youngest and most talented tennis players on the circuit. The Greek has long been among the best players in the world, a stable Top Ten and a tennis player who is very close to reaching his full potential.
However, so far Stefanos is missing something, failing to achieve glory in several respects. Tsitsipas has already qualified for the Turin Finals, has stabilized in the Top 10 and has already achieved results such as Grand Slam finals.
In Paris, in 2021, he was one step away from the coveted victory, but Novak Djokovic demolished him by coming back from two sets down. Tsitsipas has won nine titles in his career, including the Monte Carlo Masters 1000 (won in 2021 and 2022) and the ATP Finals in 2019, which show that Tsitsipas has been sailing in the upper echelons of the professional circuit for years.
Among other things, the talented Greek tennis player is considered by many to be the closest player to Swiss tennis player Roger Federer. Stefanos himself considers the Swiss as his idol and recently participated in the Laver Cup, an event that led to the withdrawal of Roger Federer from the tennis circuit.
Tsitsipas is still 24 years old, but he risks ending up in a dangerous limbo for top tennis players. In the last week, Stefanos Tsitsipas was one of the stars of the Nur Sultan tournament, a tournament in which he reached the final.
Tsitsipas dropped in straight sets in the decider against Novak Djokovic, one of his worst nightmares at this point in his career. It was a rather lopsided match, in which the Serb managed without any special suffering and came out on top with the result 6-3;6-4.
Djokovic will play the ATP Finals
After winning the 90th career title in Nur-Sultan, his third in a row on the circuit after Wimbledon and Tel-Aviv, Novak Djokovic sent a message at a press conference. At 35, the Serbian legend is not satisfied and intends to fight for a while for the biggest titles.
“I feel good physically, I play well. I don't see why I should slow down. I don't even see why talking about it. Obviously, I always want to play the biggest tournaments. There are plenty of young people coming, Carlos Alcaraz is number 1, and I still want to compete with them.
In fact, no matter where I play, when I do a tournament it's to win it. I have always thought like that and it will never change,” said the man with 21 Grand Slam titles, excellent on Sunday in the final against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
