Why Tsitsipas was surprised by this season
The Stefanos added
“I was aware of what was going on, but to be honest with you, I don’t know, I wouldn’t have imagined such a good season like this year.
I played incredible tennis; I played tennis out of my comfort zone, I did things even myself I was actually surprised with. But it’s all because of the hard work I’ve been doing.”
The 1st event of the season
Stefanos will kick-start his season in Perth where he will play the Hopman Cup defending the colors of Team Greece alongside Maria Sakkari.
Stefanos and Maria will play on the 29th of December against Great Britain that is represented by Cameron Norrie and Katie Boulter. Probably the most exciting clash will be the one against Switzerland (3rd of January) when he will have the opportunity to face Roger Federer for the delight of the local crowd.
