The Greek player Michail Pervolarakis spoke highly of his compatriot Stefanos Tsitsipas. Pervolarakis, as quoted by ATP, said: “He’s a really nice guy, so overall it’s just an amazing experience being with him.
We talk sometimes. I actually just had a baby, I send him pictures of my baby sometimes. [He has] a very big impact [in Greece]. Everyone now is watching tennis in the most random places. Instead of soccer or basketball they’re watching tennis and the [Nitto] ATP Finals or Grand Slams.
I think those kids want to play and connect with Stefanos. They want to start and see what the sport is all about. It’s just becoming bigger in general as a sport”. He is looking forward to pair up with Tsitsipas to play the ATP Cup: "Obviously it’s the biggest tournament I’ve ever played and probably will play next year.
So being in a tournament with the top guys in the world, the top tennis players, playing as a teammate as Stefanos, that will be an amazing experience for me. Also, it’s a new event, and I think it’s really cool.
Obviously you represent your country in every event, but in this one specifically you’re a team and you have opponents from different countries. I think people are really going to enjoy this tournament”. Tsitsipas is still enjoying holidays with his close friends. He is in Dubai at the moment.
