Stefanos Tsitsipas explains why being selfish is good thing in tennis

Greek tennis star Stefabos Tsitsipas has acknowledged that he wants to give his absolute best at the Paris Masters and Nitto ATP Finals and also revealed that his goal is to become more selfish. Tsitsipas believes that selfish players strive to win everything and he wants to be one of those players who are always aiming to win whatever they can.

Tsitsipas fell just short of winning his maiden Grand Slam title this year as he blew a two-set lead against Novak Djokovic in the final. "I have two more left, and I'm trying to give my last breath on the court and become more of, I don't know, selfish player on the court, and unveil my killer attitude on the court," Tsitsipas said.

Tsitsipas explains why he wants to be selfish

"You have to be this way. The best players in the world, you know, they are very selfish and they want everything for themselves, and I'm this way too. When I'm on the court I'm not mixing it up with my outside life, and I'm able to separate those two," Tsitsipas said.

"I think once you become soft and start kind of getting into your emotions and feeling many things at once, doesn't really -- it's not really good for you. So blocking all of that and letting it pass through and just being able to stay in the moment, there are some qualities that top players have developed and are able to compete at such level, not really care of what's happening on the other side of the court.

"Yeah, I think it's just grinding your teeth and wanting to thrive. That is something that I kind of feel like I'm, not very much, but I feel like I'm lacking a bit less than I did before, and trying to regenerate it."
