Tsitsipas, Dzumhur Reach New Heights In Shenzhen

#NextGenATP Greek going for maiden ATP World Tour title this week in China

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Damir Dzumhur started their Shenzhen Open experience at another level on Tuesday. The second and fourth seed visited the Ping An International Finance Centre and its observatory floor at 550 metres on Tuesday morning. The Ping An International Finance Centre was completed in 2017 and is currently the fourth tallest building in the world.

“It was an extraordinary experience for me. Hopefully I can make it to every tall building like this in the world. It's one of my bucket list goals in life,” Tsitsipas said.

Greece's #NextGenATP star is playing in the ATP World Tour 250-level tournament for the first time and still has plenty he wants to achieve in 2018.

“I'm pumped. I'm working hard to get to my first title this year. Hopefully I play some good tennis this week,” he said.


The 20-year-old Greek is in 13th place in the ATP Race To London. The top eight will qualify for the prestigious season-ending Nitto ATP Finals, to be held 11-18 November at The O2 in London.

Dzumhur, a three-time ATP World Tour titlist, reached the Shenzhen semi-finals last year and enjoyed the experience on Tuesday.

It was really great. First going up this high and then standing at those windows where you can see what is down under yourself, it's quite scary,” he said. “It was a really great experience. We played a little bit of tennis. We had a lot of fun.”
