Re: Stefanos Tsitsipas

Has an opportunity to become first player with one hadnded backhand since Thiem on Orange Bowl '11 to play in a final of major junior tournament (counting GS and OB). Saw him live twice, impressive control of the ball, maybe too much passive sometimes, but very well "framed" technically.

Re: Stefanos Tsitsipas

I'd be interested to know if he trains in Greece, or if he goes to an academy abroad. If he does train in Greece, then good for him that's a very impressive result. He's one of the Top 1998 players for sure.

Greek Tennis Player Stefanos Tsitsipas in the Orange Bowl Final!


Greek tennis athlete Stefanos Tsitsipas has defeated world No1 Andrey Rublev in Florida‘s Orange Bowl 2-0 (6-4, 7-5), the most important junior tennis tournament after the Grand Slams, to qualify for tomorrow’s final

Great legends like Roger Federer, Ivan Lendl, Bjorn Borg, Jim Courier, John McEnroe και Robin Soderling have all raised the Orange Bowl trophy in the past, as well as fellow Greek Paris Gemouhidis (2005) and Marcos Baghdatis (2003).

“I’m honestly so moved” stated the 16-year-old, “I’ve been looking forward to this event ever since I was a young child and now here I am, competing for first place!”

The 17-year-old Russian, recent winner of the Roland Garros, was ahead 4-5 in the second set and serving, but Tsitsipas won four consecutive games, breaking his opponent’s serve twice and knocking him out of the final.

Tsitsipas’ fifth win in the competition leads him in the hands of world No4, American Stefan Kozlov. Following his amazing run to the final, the Greek tennis player is expected to climb the ATP ranking from No91 to the Top 40.
