Will 2023 be the year of Stefanos? The year when the Greek will finally be able to triumph in a Grand Slam tournament?
It’s been a long time since Tsitsipas has been on the big tennis stage and has been steadily taking a place in the top five. He has repeatedly defeated the biggest names.
In total, he has 9 titles in his career. However, none of them is the main one – the Grand Slam trophy. Last year, he was already one step away from triumph. There, the king of clay, Rafael Nadal, stood before him.
What does it take to reach the top of success? It seems that Tsitsipas is planning to take the example of the universal champion, Novak Djokovic, as a source of inspiration.
In his last interview, the Greek spoke about Nole:
“Novak is the player with the most endurance and strength. He is a perfectionist who has taken this sport to another height. His nutrition, physical work, patience – he is a professional in every way.”
Stefanos believes that one day he can become a champion:
“Djokovic is a sophisticated person in every way. I get a lot of inspiration from him. I feel that there are many details that I can improve. When I understand these details well, then climbing to the highest point will no longer be a coincidence. I know my sports abilities,”– Stefanos Tsitsipas.
