After his three-set mixed doubles match at the United Cup in Sydney, Stefanos Tsitsipas expressed his satisfaction with his current condition. The Australian Open finalist of 2023, still recovering from a back injury, did not participate in the singles match against Nicolas Jarry of Chile in Greece's opening tie on Tuesday. However, he did compete alongside Maria Sakkari in a close three-set mixed doubles loss.

Tsitsipas stated, "I have improved significantly compared to a month ago. Initially, I had doubts about my participation in the United Cup. It wasn't something I had considered when planning my comeback." Starting the season ranked No. 6 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, Tsitsipas had faced difficult times towards the end of the previous year. However, he felt great during his match on Wednesday, with just a minor concern during one moment. He reassured, "I don't think it's a major issue that I need to worry about."

When asked about his playing prospects for Wednesday's matches, Tsitsipas revealed, "There is a high possibility that I might compete in both singles and mixed doubles."

Despite Tuesday's loss, Greece remains in the running to reach the quarter-finals. On Wednesday, they will face Canada, who substituted Steven Diez for the injured Felix Auger-Aliassime in their first match. Tsitsipas holds a 6-3 lead over Auger-Aliassime in their previous meetings and has never played against Diez.
