In an interview to Socrates Stefanos Tsitsipas was asked how he would like to be remembered in the future. "It should be read: the former world No. 1, or even better, the greatest player of all time", the ATP Finals champion said.
Asked what he improved the most lately, Tsitsipas replied: "My defensive game from the baseline. I worked a lot over the last months, both on court and in the gym. That's why I completely changed my diet. In the meantime, I can say I am totally committed to reach the highest goals.
I became more consistent, I make less mistakes. I am not as crazy as I was in the past. My game is overall more efficient. I also became smarter and I learned that I always play better under pressure. I am on the right path but I have no plans to take a break, believe me.
I am very hungry and I am definitely convinced to go far. Now I enjoy much more attention in Greece than the past year. If I keep like this, this sport will become very popular in my country. I am happy and proud to be a kind of tennis ambassador.
Walking freely there is turning even tougher. Even more fans stop me and they want to take a selfie with me or they ask me for an autograph. My dream was to become a football star but I am happy I picked tennis", concluded the Greek who will start his new season at the ATP Cup.
