Mexico City, November 9, 2023.- In Mexico we say that “blood calls” when family ties are strengthened and endure despite adversity. This popular saying or Mexican proverb applies very well to what Stefanos Tsitsipas experienced in recent months after concluding the relationship with his father as his coach, starting a new stage with Mark Philippoussis as his coach and weeks later returning to his father Apostolos Tsitsipas.
The father-son bond has been successful since the beginning of his career. At his side, the Greek has managed to win 10 titles, including two championships at the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 (2020 and 2021) and lifted in 2019 the ATP Finals title in London.
The working relationship between Stafanos and Apostolos had a break at the beginning of 2023, but the Greek tennis player, current champion of the Mifel Tennis Open by Telcel Oppo, failed to adapt to the style and training program of Australian Mark Philippoussis, so he decided to return to his “origins”.
Just at the Paris Masters 1000, Stafanos Tsitsipas reached 300 career victories, no small feat for a 25-year-
old tennis player. To reach this figure, he owes much to the experience and support of his father from the stands as coach.
Since the beginning of his career as a professional in 2016, Tsitsipas had a rapid and sustained rise in the ATP rankings, on October 23, 2017 he entered the Top 100 of the best players in the world and in less than a year (in October 2018) he was already in the group of the best 20 tennis players on the planet.
Undoubtedly, having the Greek again in Mexican lands will be a show for the fans that will gather in February in Los Cabos and, what better, than accompanied by his father and mentor in his sporting career.
