Tsitsipas in Rotterdam
Despite his young age, Stefanos Tsitsipas can be seen in action for the fourth time in Rotterdam. In 2017 he debuted as number 205 in the world with a wildcard. The then 18-year-old Greek was defeated by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. Earlier this year he returned as number 12 in the world and winner of the #NextGen ATP Finals. After a fascinating match he had to acknowledge his superiority in three sets in Damir Dzumhur.
Nevertheless it turned out to be the start of a fine season, that saw him rise to in sixth in the ATP rankings through titles in Marseille and Estoril and final places in Dubai, Beijing and Madrid.
The wildcard early in his career creates a special relationship between Tsitsipas and the Netherlands. It was not without reason that he tweeted on arrival in Rotterdam: “Just arrived to Hagelslaglandia.”
Stefanos Tsitsipas is after Daniil Medvedev, Gael Monfils, David Goffin, Dennis Shapovalov, Stan Wawrinka, Grigor Dimitrov and Jannik Sinner the eight player to confirm their entry for the 47th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament.
