Tsitsipas in the Top 10 of the world ranking

After his turbulent and action tournament in Dubai, Stefanos Chitsipas added 210 points to his winnings to overcome Marin Cilic and win the title of the top 10 in the world ranking!

Tsitsipas became the first male representative of Greece to enter the Top 10 of a world ranking. Two places only separate him from the record of the top Greek-speaking player who passed from the stadiums of Cypriot Markos Pagdatis, who in August 2006 managed to reach No. 8.

The 20-year-old talented Greek tennis player is only happy to feel, not only because he has come to claim the trophy against the “King” (which he even won in Australian Open’s “16”) but because by his dominance over Monfils in the semifinals “locked” a historical distinction. The other two big goals he has for the rest of the year are “winning a Masters 1000 title and qualifying at the ATP Finals in London,” he said.

The aspiring champion has managed to score 1,360 points for this season. It is ranked 2nd in the ATP Race to London ranking, back only by Novak Djokovic, which has 2,090 points. In 3rd place he left Rafael Nadal, with 1,245 points, while no other player has yet surpassed 1,000 points.
