Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas has a clear plan for how he wants to help the young tennis players from his country, after not receiving enough support from the Hellenic Tennis Federation.
The World No.6 Tsitsipas in a recent interview with Tennis News Greece, expressed his dissatisfaction with the federation’s efforts in developing tennis talent. He has a clear plan, which he intends to implement in the coming years.
Tsitsipas’s project was born out of a passion for the development of tennis in Greece and will be beyond the support of the federation.
“Personally I have a plan, which I want to implement in a few years from now. I don’t expect anything from the federation, they won’t be responsible for it, it’s a personal matter and something I want to create in the next few years.”-Stefanos Tsitsipas in an interview with Tennis News Greece
He also extended his invitation to World No.8 Maria Sakkari, a citizen of Greece, in support of his vision. He mentioned that the project is not driven by financial motives and has been in his mind for some time.
“Of course, in this project, Maria is also welcome…..For me it is a passion and it has nothing to do with money. I am passionate about the development of tennis in Greece and I hope in the future I will find time because it is something that has been on my mind for the last few months. ”-Stefanos Tsitsipas in an interview with Tennis News Greece
Tennis Analyst highlights growing concerns over Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas as their form takes a downturn
The duo were regarded as promising talents, but their recent performances in the Grand Slams say something about their future.
Gill highlighted that players like Carlos Alacaraz, Jannik Sinner, and Holger Rune have proven to give good competition to their opponents including Zverev and Tsitsipas. The trio has proved themselves winning 16 out of the 29 meetings.
In his podcast ‘Monday Match Analysis’ he was asked whether Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas could win a Grand Slam in the near future. To which he responded:
“I don’t think that it’s gonna get any easier on the outside in the next few years, and that includes when Djokovic is finally kind of done at the top and declines a bit…”
“Alcaraz, Sinner, Rune….all three are going to be, first of all, they are already great players, but when they are fully realized and fully formed, they are going to be extraordinarily difficult to beat for Zverev and Tsitsipas.”-Gill Gross in his podcast Monday Match Analysis
