Tsitsipas can be getting the same ovation as Roger Federer is - Hantuchova

Daniela Hantuchova believes that Stefanos Tsitsipas can get a huge fanbase in the years to come. Speaking after the Greek player's ATP Finals title in London, the Slovakian pundit said: "Energy-wise in the last few moments you could hear everybody screaming Stefanos' name.

This is where we are, we are witnessing something incredibly special. In a few years time, he might be getting the same ovation as Roger Federer is getting whichever arena he enters in the world. People are starting to feel the same about Stefanos because there is something special about this guy."

Tsitsipas also spoke about how his popularity can increase in the country: "There isn't much of Greek tennis. It's mostly football and basketball. For me, I do feel lonely on the ATP World Tour, being the only Greek that plays at such a high level.

I honestly wish we see more players from Greece coming up who can do, honestly wish they can do better than me and push me and motivate me. I was really excited to be part of the Davis Cup this year. Something new, something fresh for me.

My brother, I got connected with my brother more. We got to talk about tennis. He got to experience and feel how I feel on the court. Also, Michail Pervolarakis who is the second-best tennis player in Greece, I really hope he does well in the next couple of months because he also, you know, he was working very hard and he wants to achieve things. He just had a child, and I believe he has a good level to be ranked high in the rankings."
