World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas was proud of the Greece ATP Cup team though they failed to register a win at the inaugural event in Australia. On Tuesday, Greece collected its third loss in Brisbane after losing to Australia 3-0.
The two previous losses came against Canada on Friday and Germany on Sunday, respectively. Tsitsipas, who won the 2019 Nitto ATP Finals event, was one of the best players at the inaugural ATP Cup but he couldn't do much alone.
Pervolarakis, ranked at No. 486 in the world, failed to step up for Greece as he lost each of his three singles matches at the event. "We had a difficult draw here in Brisbane, but we played with what we have," Tsitsipas said, per the ATP Cup.
"Canada, Australia... Germany, one of the strongest nations in the game, playing against a small, tiny little nation like Greece, which has no history in tennis at all? You got to feel proud. We fought very hard and we wanted to prove to the rest of the world that [we] can play tennis anywhere in the world”.
