Stefanos Tsitsipas won a fantastic title at this edition of the ATP Finals after defeating an in-form Dominic Thiem in a thrilling final.
The Greek sensation has always professed his admiration for the Austrian, saying that in all his development, he was inspired by him. Stefanos and Dominic also had great chemistry during the Laver Cup, an event that has developed a lot of camaraderies among the participants.
The congratulations and the kiss to Dominic
After the math, Stefanos commented, “I would like to start by congratulating Dominic. You’ve been an inspiration, not just for me but I’m sure many other players around the world and for people that come to watch.
It’s truly magnificent this final we put out today. I think it makes our sport great; tennis is all about this. Congratulations on your amazing season this year.”
It very nice to notice the fantastic hug between Stefanos and Dominic soon after the end of the contest with Stefanos even kissing the Austrian on the back.
This is how tennis should be.
