Can Tsitsipas win a slam in 2020?
Stefanos Tsitsipas ended the 2019 ranked no.6 and with 3 titles in Marseille, Estoril, and London. The Greek sensation kept on improving and maturing for the entire year. it looked clear at the very end that he can play Iat the same level and for a prolonged period of time against the very best. After winning the ATP Finals, Tsitsipas confirmed that he feels close to being a slam champion. If a “Next Gen” will conquer a slam, he is the obvious candidate.
Can Thiem win a slam?
After a tentative start of the season, Dominic had a fantastic year. The Austrian didn’t impress only on clay (his favorite surface), but also on extremely fast surfaces such as the ones in Indian Wells (where he won the title) and London (in the finals). Dominic is now a much more complete player, and he can definitely aspire to win a major. The French Open is the most obvious one.
