Greek star denies firing father as coach 

2022 01 Stefanos Tsitsipas Australian Open 25

Tsitsipas revealed that former pro Thomas Enqvist had joined his coaching team but said that his father would still be involved.

“Enqvist is an addition to my team,” said Tsitsipas.

Apostolos Tsitsipas sparked fury during his son’s Australian Open semi-final loss to Daniil Medvedev. The Russian furiously remonstrated with the umpire complaining that Tsitsipas was being coached on court.

Tsitsipas was seen working with Enqvist during the ongoing ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.

The Greek No 1 said that he was taking on board a fresh perspective and had added Enqvist to his support team.

“Enqvist has a lot of experience on the tour and I respect him a lot. The reason Thomas is here is to help me, give me another perspective and give me some ideas,” the 23-year-old told reporters in the Gateway to Europe.

The rising star has enjoyed working with Enqvist and has looked in good touch on court, progressing to the semi-finals with just one dropped set.

“I’m here to listen whatever he has to told me. We have good energy between us.”
