If Stefanos Tsitsipas wants to win his maiden Grand Slam title at this year's Australian Open, he will probably have to beat Rafael Nadal in the semifinals and Novak Djokovic in the final.
Tsitsipas feels confident he can do it. 'I believe in myself, yeah', the world No. 15 said. 'Because, when they started, it was the same scenario. I have to believe in myself. These players have been on Tour for many years and this is a changing time.
We as younger players should make a step forward. I am excited and very happy playing tennis. I enjoy staying on court and it helps me to get good results. If I keep this way, loving the time I spend on court, I can do even better in the tournament.'
'I feel I am confident to go even higher. I feel more confident and stronger in my decision making. I feel like a new Stefanos. What's happening is not by chance. I feel like I am improving in every clash, and these clashes help me to know the level I am at.'
