The Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas has just turned 20. However, he is already a greatly respected tennis player. After having won tennis legends such as Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson, he climbed all the way to Number 15 at ATP. This means that he is now amongst the elite tennis players in the world. And this ranking is well deserved!
Stefanos Tsitsipas comes from a tennis family. Both his parents were top players and his father is his coach. This explains why his siblings are also professional tennis players and why Stefanos was so focused from an early age as to his career. When others drifted between clouds of professional dreams, he was determined and started building on solid ground. In a country where tennis is not that popular, in a place where training requires not only time but also a considerable amount of money, Stefanos Tsitsipas exceeded all expectations.
Ever since July 2016, Stefanos Tsitsipas has shown the world his true intentions. He had managed to rank at the top in the “Junior” category. This has been a huge step in his career, of course, along with his win as the European Champion. Now that he has joined the rest of the legends, he seems to get comfy among them. And he is equally enthusiastic and mature in his game. With his distinctive one-handed backhand, a shot that is not preferred by many in the world, he feels natural.
The Association of Tennis Professionals has embraced Stefanos Tsitsipas and his current ranking is great proof. However, there is still so much to see from the Greek player with the unique characteristics and physique. A humble and disciplined young man, whose major ambition is to make Greece love tennis! Because this is a tremendous bet, after Nick Galis and basketball. Just like the Greek-American basketball player (and member of Hall of Fame) made all Greeks fall in love with basketball back in 1987. Now it is probably Stefanos’ turn to do his thing and teach the Greeks all about Grand Slam, Wimbledon, ATP World Tour and a lot more!
