Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas says he wants to make a movie in the future. The World No. 6 was speaking with former Top 10 player Barbara Schett from Eurosport during an online interview. When Schett asked him about his hobbies, Tsitsipas said he would like either produce a movie or write a script for a film.
“It is my dream to make a movie. I don’t necessarily want to be the actor in the movie. I would like to either be the producer or the scriptwriter for the movie. Anything I can do to give it my flavor." Speaking about the genre of the movie, Tsitsipas said, "It wouldn’t be a horror film, I don’t like them.
It would either be action/adventure or a documentary covering stories around the world. Maybe fantasies or sci-fi or it could be a lifestyle." The youngster also said that George Clooney is his favourite from the movie business.
“I really like George Clooney. I like some of his creations, and he was the producer behind Gravity which I really liked. There are many movies I get to watch and I think I’d like to create something similar. There are so many ideas out there that haven’t been expressed." 21 year old Tsitsipas has a career-high ranking of No.
5 in the world, making him the highest-ranked Greek player in history. He is the reigning champion at the ATP Finals, and is the youngest winner of the year-end championships in eighteen years. He has won five singles titles on the ATP Tour.
