‘Stefanos Tsitsipas is a stunning talent with enormous potential,’ says supercoach Patrick Mouratoglou
Patrick Mouratoglou has described Stefanos Tsitsipas as a ‘stunning talent with enormous potential’ ahead of his Roland Garros semi-final against Novak Djokovic.
Mouratoglou has worked with the Greek star ever since seeing a video of him playing as a 17-year-old, with him immediately inviting him to train at the Patrick Mouratoglou academy.
Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of only 13 men this century, and the first since 2009, to reach multiple Grand Slam semi-finals before their 23rd birthday, but Mouratoglou is not even remotely surprised.
“When I saw the video of Stefanos playing at the Orange Bowl, a junior event in Florida, I was stunned by his qualities,” Mouratoglou said of Tsitsipas.
“He was fully focused on his match, he was 100% into it, he knew how to identify key moments, what to do in those moments, when to take risks, when to come to the net,
and so on.
“Stef thinks like a champion and has enormous potential. He breathes tennis, he is ambitious, he is determined, and he is never satisfied.”
