A historic moment for Greek tennis and Stefanos Tsitsipas, who in a few hours will become the first Greek tennis player to compete in the ATP Finals.
The Greek champion, who is No. 6 in the world rankings, is closing in on an excellent year in which he won two titles (Millennium Estoril Open, Open 13 Provence), holding a record of 50-24 and winning all three great ones (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic).
In his first game, which starts today at 16:00 Greek time, he faces world No. 4 Russian Daniil Medvedev. Prehistory is no good for 21-year-old Tsitsipas, who has lost all five of his matches. But today’s situation will be completely different, and Tsitsipas is hoping for his first win against Medvedev.
The program of the day ends with a clash between Rafael Nadal, who has never won the ATP Finals, and Alexander Zverev, who has never won the Spaniard.
In yesterday’s games for the “BJORN BORG” group, Novak Djokovic beat rookie Matteo Berrettini 6-2, 6-1 very comfortably, while Dominic Thiem had a great win over Roger Federer, with 7-5 7-5.
