Stefanos Tsitsipas on Roger Federer’s comeback, compares Team Europe to Jordan’s Bulls

Stefanos Tsitsipas is eager to compete in the Laver Cup as he compared this year’s Team Europe squad to Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls. In the 1990s, Jordan’s Bulls absolutely dominated the NBA scene.

That generation of the Bulls team is widely considered to be one of the best teams in the entire history of the sport. This year, Team Europe will be represented by Tsitsipas, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Casper Ruud.

Team Europe features the Big Four and two other Grand Slam finalists. «Let me first say this is legendary. This team’s lineup is a joke. This is Michael Jordan with the Chicago Bulls. I am beyond honored to be a part of this team,» Tsitsipas said, via Sportskeeda.

Tsitsipas eager to see Federer back in action

Federer, who turned 41 earlier this month, will be playing his first tournament since Wimbledon 2021. Tsitsipas admits he is not sure where Federer is with his game, but noted that he is absolutely happy to play alongside the Swiss.

«Honestly, I don’t know what Roger’s status is, but I am more than happy to see him back on the court. What a privilege to have him in the team, I hope he plays the first singles match. Yes, all the best experiences I have. I’ve had on the court is to play Laver Cup, and that’s why I’ve been a big fan,» he said.

I learned a lot from these greats. I have the opportunity to share something very meaningful with them over a three-day performance period. More than that, we get to connect and share great ideas on the court, off the court, be a part of something extraordinary for our sport.»

The Laver Cup was launched in 2017. Since then, Team Europe has beaten Team World every year. Whether Team Europe can maintain its dominance over Team World remains to be seen.
