Tsitsipas: "I can’t wait to be back on the court because competition keeps me alive"

The world of sport is experiencing one of the most complicated moments in its history. The health emergency caused by the spread of Coronavirus has stopped everything, and obviously also tennis competitions. Players try to keep fit by training at home, but the distance from the playing fields is felt more and more.

Stefanos Tsitsipas holds victories against the Big 3 – namely Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. However, the biggest prize in tennis still alludes him. The Greek player has still not been able to claim a grand slam title.

In a recent interview, Stefanos revealed that he did believe that his current pace of work will take him closer to the desired result. “I believe in my work. I’m working to win a Grand Slam title as soon as possible, I haven’t been able to prove that in the last couple of Grand Slams, but it’s a goal that I want to achieve" - he said.

"I do miss competing and playing," Tsitsipas added. "I can’t wait to be back on the tennis court because competition keeps me alive – it keeps me going every single day. I’m really looking forward to my next tournament.

I hope it’s not a long way from now. I hope this whole thing lasts as little time as possible. I’m trying to stay in shape. It does have an affect I would say. Time seems to be running pretty slow! I’m trying to stay active.

I’m trying to go outside, get a work out, get a run and keep my body in shape," Tsitsipas claimed. "That’s something that’s really challenging right now – trying not to get lazy and do nothing.

It’s quite tricky. You don’t want to gain more weight, you don’t want to lose muscle and flexibility. All of that is crucially important for you to maintain your good shape. You always have to find solutions and ways to maintain your body and be mentally and physically fit."
