Stefanos Tsitsipas: 'Nadal can beat Roger Federer's Majors' record'

Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of the "Next Gen" players who is trying to enter the tennis elite. The 19-year-old former junior world no. 1 is currently ranked 82nd in the ATP rankings. Asked by Marca, if the transition from junior to pro was difficult, Tsitsipas said: 'In the juniors I reached Orange Bowl final when I wasn't even a top-100. My level was among the best players of that age and it helped me to understand professional tennis better. The first time I was with top players in the locker room, I felt more a fan than a professional.'

What are the new rules he doens't like? 'I don't like let and no-ad because you have much pressure and luck also plays its part.'

The final question is about Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Does he expect them to split the four Grand Slam titles in 2018 as well? 'Of course. They had an unbelievable season. Rafa won his tenth Roland Garros title, even if I think Federer's season was better. Anyway, I believe Nadal can beat Roger's Majors' record.'
