Stefanos Tsitsipas is considered by experts to be one of the biggest suspects in breaking the dominance of the Big 3, especially in the Slams. Greek talent rose to prominence early last year reaching the Australian Open semifinal - after eliminating defending champion Roger Federer - but has not since been able to confirm his progress in major tournaments.
However, the Greek tennis star took away the whim to win the Nitto ATP Finals at the end of 2019, once again demonstrating that he has the stigmata of the predestined and knows how to manage the pressure better than many of his peers.
During a LIVE session with Barbara Schett on Eurosport, 'Tsitsi' revealed his favorite tournament: "My favourite tournament is the Laver Cup. I love the vibes at the Laver Cup, we were all so connected, we came into the tournament as a union, trying to represent our continent and it just felt magical to be on the same team as Roger [Federer] and Rafa [Nadal].
I got to play doubles with both of them and it was a great experience for me. It was a dream come true for sure. As a child, I would never have dreamed the Laver Cup would ever happen – a competition between Europe and the Rest of the World – I would never think that would be possible but it happened and I got to be part of it.
I got invited which was such an honour. Playing for your country is one thing, but playing for Team Europe – if you just sit down and think about it – you are among the best European tennis players. You get to be chosen as one of the top tennis players to play for your continent.
That makes you feel very emotional." In the talk, she asked him which matches he would play again. Stefanos replied by saying, “The match against Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open where I got chopped up. I would pick it because I was a different player then, I am more experienced now and I will carry that experience with me next time. I may not win but I will definitely put up a fight”.
