Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas has acknowledged that he and his teammates from Team Europe are determined to play their best tennis at this week's Laver Cup. Tsitsipas, who is enjoying a career-high ranking of No.
3 in the world, knows the crowd in Boston will be rooting for Team World but he insists Team Europe will be ready for it. "We are going to expose our best tennis this week, that's our ultimate goal and plan. Of course, the crowd is not in our favor.
This is something that we are expecting and we are going to fight against it and try prove ourselves with our game," Tsitsipas said.
Tsitsipas struggled during the early days of the pandemic
Recently, Tsitsipas opened and revealed that he was struggling during the early days of the pandemic.
"I never imagined going through something in my life like a pandemic,” Tsistipas said. "Now I am in a better state mentally, I was not in the beginning. It’s all about adaptation; that’s how I see it.
Once you adapt to your conditions, then the human brain and body have this ability to adapt to any circumstance and in any way. “Personally, I struggled a lot with this. I never imagined that it would affect me so much, in a way that I hadn’t seen coming."
Tsitsipas now sees positive improvements "Now I am confident,” Tsitsipas added. “Right now, I see the light at the end of the tunnel; things are improving. It’s so nice to finally see a solution and make our day-to-day lives much easier and have better access to different types of things that bring happiness and joy.
Things are looking better, and things look a lot better on the ATP Tour." Tsitsipas last played at the US Open, where he suffered a surprise third round loss to rising Spanish star Carlos Alcaraz.
