Stefanos Tsitsipas speaks highly of rising Greek Michail Pervolarakis

Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas sees a lot of promise in fellow compatriot Michail Pervolarakis' game as he says he can learn a lot from the world No. 433. Tsitsipas, 21, and 23-year-old Pervolarakis recently led Greece to progressing into the Group II play offs -- which will be held next March.

Pervolarakis, who turned professional about a year ago after finishing his college career, won three of his four singles match in the recent Europe Group III Davis Cup event. Also, Pervolarakis and Tsitsipas proved to be a good doubles team, having stunned Polish doubles specialists Lukasz Kubot and Marcin Matkowski.

"I am really proud of him. He’s a really nice kid,” Tsitsipas said of Pervolarakis, per Neos Kosmos. “I really feel him, like his calmness, his psychological balance when he’s on the court, it’s very, very inspiring, even though he’s not yet in the top 100, I feel I can learn a lot from him and get as much as I can from him because he’s something different from what you see regularly on the tour."
