Stefanos in his first interview was asked at the Sydney ATP cup interview about the Vaccination rules to play Tennis in Australia and about Novak reason for not playing in the Sydney Cup.
“Rules are rules, and they are established for a purpose. So if some players decide not to follow them, it’s their choice. I wouldn’t say it’s right or wrong here. I followed whatever was necessary in order for me to come to Australia” Tsitsipas said.
“If Djokovic thinks he is not ready to play ATPCup for whatever reason, is his choice. I think most of the players respect his choice. What can I say? The ATP Cup will lack on a great player this year”. the Greek star said.
On the question regarding the possibility of the AusOpen without the big three.
“I guess that’s how it is going to be generally in a few years time. Let’s see how tennis works out without the top three. I really want to see which players are going to prevail at this point”.
When asked about team Greece he replied and their chances.
“We are more hungry than everyone else”
