World No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas is looking forward to playing at the Laver Cup next week. Tsitsipas, 23, is set to make his second Laver Cup appearance. Tsitsipas, who ended runner-up at this year's French Open, debuted at the Laver Cup in2919.
“It is great being a part of Team Europe again and I look forward to playing in Boston,” Tsitsipas said. “I feel like it’s a different eye, different view of this sport we are used to playing individually,” Tsitsipas said of the Laver Cup after that campaign.
“It kind of gives it a new perspective and a fresh, kind of like an evolution, I will call it”.
Tsitsipas tipped to win Grand Slams by coach Patrick Mouratoglou
"Tsitsipas is one of those who can do it.He can win Grand Slam tournaments and become world number 1.
He's got the motivation, he's got what it takes in the racket. But there are others like Medvedev, Zverev. I think these three are the closest but there are still some behind. On the other hand, I think this generation is under enormous pressure because in the past Roger, Rafa and Novak were so over the top that there was ultimately no suspense, see possibilities.
Now we can say it's different, there are openings," Mouratoglou said. Mouratoglou also defended Tsitsipas and his bathroom breaks. "When he lost his Roland Garros final he was two sets to love up. Djokovic took a toilet break, came back and then it was a different match.
He learned from that,” Mouratoglou said. “He didn’t learn that Djokovic broke his rhythm. He found out that Djokovic took time for himself in the locker room and was able to reset and come back different. “He learned that, tried it and it worked out for him. That’s why he continues to do it."
