At 20 years of age, Stefanos Tsitsipas is already ranked no.6, and he seems to be ready to make the crucial step of winning his first slam.
The Greek sensation has already beaten all the big 3, and he has always declared that he feels extremely comfortable on grass and playing in Wimbledon. Stefanos didn’t have a fantastic run in his previous 2 tournaments on grass in ‘s-Hertogenbosch where he lost in his opening match to Nicolas Jarry and at the Queen’s Club where he was defeated again by Felix Auger-Aliassime (7-5 6-2). However, despite his recent setbacks, Tsitsipas is still considered among the top favorites at the Championships.
Time for Tsitsipas to win a slam. WILANDER
Mats Wilander, the 7th-slam champion commented:
“Tsitispas has got star quality and it would be great for the sport if he starts winning Slams. For me, I am watching Tsitsipas and if you take away the Slams that Federer and Nadal have won, you are watching a combination of the two.
I don’t think you can say that Tsitsipas’ game is not as attractive as Roger’s game. His serve no. But the forehand in many ways is better looking.
The backhand is better looking or as good. And he has a more outwardly positive passion than Nadal.
So Tsitsipas is the complete package for me. now you have got to add 37 Slams to his name, and suddenly you have got Roger and Rafa. When I see him, I am not worried. He just has to win. Winning is important, really important.”
