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.
The defeat in Kazakhstan shows a resounding negative about the 24-year-old tennis player from southern Europe. In the category of ATP 500 tournaments, Stefanos Tsitsipas has already played 9 finals with 0 wins and 9 losses so far.
Tsitsipas wants to end the season well
Between his famous match in the 3rd round of Wimbledon against Nick Kyrgios, his elimination in the 1st round of the US Open against Galán, his losses in the Cincinnati final (against Borna Coric) and in Astana more recently (against Novak Djokovic), Sin Forget Roger Federer’s farewell which he closely attended, Stefanos Tsitsipas lived through the last three emotionally charged months.
At a press conference in Stockholm, where he won his first tournament in 2018, the Greek was confident in these turbulent weeks. “I would call them an emotional roller coaster. His performance at the US Open was probably one of the worst of his career.
A special game. I was not on the court that day. A lot has changed in the last few weeks regarding my state of mind. My love for this sport has also grown and right now I am having fun, ”said the 5th in the world, opposed to Maxime Cressy on Tuesday in Sweden for his entry into the race.
