Stefanos Tsitsipas on the hunt for third consecutive title
With the Monte Carlo Masters set to get underway next week, many stars will be out and about as they look to secure the mouth-watering title. However, one such player stands out above the rest-Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Tsitispas will be eager and excited as he looks to claim his third consecutive Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters title.
“I am looking to make it three [titles]. But I won’t take too much time thinking of it. I am feeling refreshed that we are able to start playing on clay again.”
The star is not entirely focused on potentially winning his third title but rather on the more pressing matter at hand, his upcoming performances.
The Greek star began his title hunt in the 2021 final against Andrey Rublev, which saw him claim his first ATP Masters 100 crown. Tsitsipas then went on to claim his second title last year after defeating Alejandro Davidovich Fokina to lead at the clay-court event.
“It is a pleasure to return to the clay-court swing,” Tsitsipas said during his pre-tournament press conference on Saturday. “It is one of the most fascinating parts of the year, starting the clay-court swing in Monte-Carlo, which is my favourite place in the world.
Tsitsipas is a master of the clay, having won four of his ten tour-level titles on the surface, making him an exciting player to watch.
“It is my home tournament and having won the event twice. It gives me so much happiness that I was able to live and experience those moments. I am hoping to make it more than twice this week.”
The Greek God comes into the tournament after a disappointing fourth-round exit last month in Miami. However, the Greek star is in good contention for the tournament, as he holds an exciting record of twelve wins and two losses at the event.
The tennis star is in high spirits, with great confidence in winning a third title at the tournament. Not only does he enjoy playing at the tournament, but he also enjoys playing in front of his fans, who will certainly be out in full swing as they support their hero.
“I am enjoying the fact that I have won this event twice. I feel good playing here, I feel good in front of my fans,” Tsitsipas said.
The energetic star will certainly give his fans some enjoyable entertainment, as he has already solidified his spot in the round of 32, with his opponent still being decided.
