Stefanos Tsitsipas' Love Letter To Tennis

The Greek reflects on why he fell in love with the sport

Stefanos Tsitsipas' first love is tennis, the sport he was first introduced to in 2001 by his parents, Apostolos and Julia. The Greek star has enjoyed a special ride with tennis ever since.

The 25-year-old sat down with ATP Uncovered to narrate his very own love letter to the sport.

"What felt so special with you is that I felt like part of my own playground, in which there were no rules, no limits," Tsitsipas said of his early days on the court.

He also reflected on the moment he decided to commit to tennis as his main focus and his progression on the ATP Tour, beginning with a lesson-filled defeat against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Rotterdam in 2017.

What else did Tsitsipas focus on in his tennis journey and why does he sometimes have a love-hate relationship with the sport? Watch the full video below.
