‘Novak Djokovic is the favorite in all…’, says legend
The time has come for Stefanos Tsitsipas to make his biggest dreams come true. The Greek tennis player has not lived up to expectations in the last three Slams, reaching only the second week at Roland Garros, but at the Australian Open he could pull off an unbelievable en plein.
In fact, if he won his first major in Melbourne, Tsitsipas would also reach the top of the ATP rankings. “I have already set my goals since the beginning of the year, but I know it will be a long race. I can’t go a mile an hour and wait for something to happen.
I will have to show continuity throughout the season. I will have to overcome the losses and be mentally constant, always trying to recover. It will be quite a challenge.” Tsitsipas said at the press conference. “There are young budding tennis players.
We still have Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal playing very good tennis. They are still there. I know I can do great things this year. I have the ability to withstand pressure and challenges. United Cup? I am glad that the ATP has been able to organize this event and that it has listened to the players who asked for this competition, including me.
The ATP Cup was a good tournament, but the possibility of having a single group consisting of men and women seems fantastic to me. Tennis does not have events of this type and it could be said that this type of competition is lacking in this sport, which is so individual and solitary.” Finally, Tsitsipas talked about Novak Djokovic, who returned to Australia after the events of last year.
“I don’t have any thoughts. I think it’s good for his fans that he’s back and he can play the Australian Open.

“The odds are with Novak Djokovic,” Martina Navratilova told Tennis Channel in a recent interview. “Chances are he’ll win one, or two, maybe even three Majors…
