Stefanos Tsitsipas, who is playing the ATP tournament in Acapulco, expressed himself on the goals he wants to pursue in 2024. The Greek tennis player underlined how he has the ambition of winning a Slam, despite the fact that he is going through a difficult moment.

"The ultimate ambition for 2024 would be a Grand Slam title and am ATPMasters 1000 trophy. I would also like to see myself with an Olympic medal of any metal in Paris. And looking back now, I would probably reduce the pace and play fewer matches at that time," he told.

Stefanos revealed his feelings in the Mexican competition in an interview with Tennis TV.

"I've had a great start to the tournament every time I've reached the semi-final or final here. I think I've had several good matches on these courts, but I've always needed something more towards the end of the week to win the decisive matches. My dream is to lift the final title on Sunday. It hasn't happened yet but I keep coming back hungrier every year, increasing my desire to get that trophy," he underlined.

The Greek also played in many tournaments on the major circuit last year.

"As long as my body is healthy and I'm willing to go out there and give 100% every time, I see no reason to stop or consider playing less.”

Tsitsipas is chasing his first Slam title

Tsitsipas is among the players still chasing the first Slam title of his career. The Greek has played in two finals in recent years but on both occasions he had to surrender to the ruthless Novak Djokovic: in 2021 he managed to go all the way to the main draw of the Roland Garros, while in 2023 he attempted a coup at the Australian Open without succeed.

The 25-year-old has dropped out of the top 10 of the ATP world rankings after several seasons and hopes to soon rediscover his best tennis to compete at the highest levels.
