Stefanos Tsitsipas just turned 21, and at his young age, he has already achieved a lot. The Greek sensation had a fantastic breakthrough this year. Everything started after he reached the semifinal at the US Open after beating on the way his childhood idol, Roger Federer. Later Stefanos managed to win 2 tournaments in Marseille and Estoril before reaching a prestigious final in Madrid.
One of Tsitsipas’ key moment of the season was when he managed to break in the top10 earlier in the year. Last week, Stefano reached his career-high rank (no.5). Stefanos is currently no.7, but he is still no.5 in the year to date rankings.
Stefanos and the Nextgen finals
While the Greek teenager is sure to qualify for the NextGen finals in Milan, a tournament that he won last year, the 19-year-old is widely expected to qualify for the ATP finals in London. In fact, being no.5 in the year to date rankings, he still has a good lead of 1,185 points over Fabio Fognini (no.9) that is also suffering from an ankle injury and he had to skip Cincinnati.
