‘The mind of Roger Federer, the discipline of Novak Djokovic’ – Youngster tipped for greatness
Former Australian Open finalist Marcos Baghdatis has named Stefanos Tsitsipas as one of just two players he sees as able to consistently win Grand Slams after the big three are done.
Tsitsipas appears well-positioned to challenge Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic after he won the ATP Finals last month.
And, according to Baghdatis, that was far from a fluke, as he sees elements of the greats in the Greek.
“He doesn’t think like us,” he told The Tennis Podcast of Tsitsipas.
“I see a bit of Roger in him, in his game, in his mind, on the court in the way he analyses the matches.
“Not a lot of players can come out of a match and analyse so well. That’s a very strong advantage that he has.” The Telegraph quoted Baghdatis as saying.
“He has a complete game. He has very small things to improve – his slice a bit and his return.
“But his self-discipline and determination, he’s at the level of Djokovic for me, and at a very young age.
“I think he’s the only one, with [Dominic] Thiem, that has the mentality to keep on winning slams throughout the years.”
