Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of the youngest and most talented tennis players on the circuit. The Greek has been among the best players in the world for a long time, a stable Top Ten and a tennis player who is very close to reaching his full potential.
However, so far Stefanos is missing something, failing to achieve glory in various aspects. Tsitsipas has already qualified for the Turin Finals, has stabilized in the Top 10 and has already achieved results such as Grand Slam finals.
In Paris, in 2021, he was one step away from the long-awaited victory, but Novak Djokovic knocked him down by coming back two sets down. Tsitsipas has won nine titles in his career, including the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 (won in 2021 and 2022) and the ATP Finals in 2019, proving that Tsitsipas has been navigating the upper echelons of the professional circuit for years.
Among other things, the talented Greek tennis player is considered by many to be the closest player to Swiss tennis player Roger Federer. Stefanos himself considers the Swiss his idol and recently participated in the Laver Cup, an event that saw Roger Federer retire from the tennis circuit.
Tsitsipas is still 24 years old, but he risks ending up in dangerous limbo for top tennis players. In the last week, Stefanos Tsitsipas was one of the stars of the Nur Sultan tournament, a tournament in which he reached the final.
Tsitsipas fell in straight sets in the decider against Novak Djokovic, one of his worst nightmares at this point in his career. It was a fairly unequal match, in which the Serbian managed without any special suffering and prevailed with the result 6-3; 6-4.
Djokovic will play the ATP Finals
After winning his 90th career title at Nur-Sultan, the third in a row on the tour after Wimbledon and Tel-Aviv, Novak Djokovic sent a message at a press conference. At 35 years old, the Serbian legend is not satisfied and intends to fight for the most important titles for a while.
“I feel good physically, I play well. I don’t see why it should slow down. I don’t even see why talk about it. Obviously, I always want to play the biggest tournaments. A lot of young people come, Carlos Alcaraz is number 1, and I still want to compete with them.
In fact, wherever I play, when I do a tournament it’s to win it. I have always thought like this and it will never change,” said the man with 21 Grand Slam titles, excellent on Sunday in the final against Stefanos Tsitsipas.
