‘I can beat the best’ – Stefanos Tsitsipas ready to take on the big three in 2020
Stefanos Tsitsipas believes he is on the verge of a major breakthrough in 2020, as he positions himself to take the biggest scalps in tennis.
The Greek won the ATP Finals in November to underline his status as a major player who can compete with the best, and he has no intention to stop his ascent there.
“I feel I am close. Over the last couple of years, I’ve proved I can beat top players,” said Tsitsipas.
“I can be persistent and consistent at the same time. I plan to work on controlling my nerves on court, being patient, not cracking under pressure and being brave in match situations.”
Tsitsipas will start his preparations for 2020 by appearing at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.
It is his first time at the prestigious invitation-only exhibition, where he will face Gael Monfils in his first match.
“I know Gael pretty well, he is one of my best friends on the Tour and it will be exciting facing him,” he added.
“For me it is a great way to start the season by competing at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.
“It is a tournament I have never played in before. I am really looking forward to getting a few good matches under my belt before I travel to Australia.”
