Stefanos Tsitsipas out of the Top 10 for the first time in four years

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Stefanos Tsitsipas will be out of the top ten on Monday for the first time since March 4, 2019

It did not start well in 2024 for Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The Greek tennis player was eliminated early in the Australian Open, a fall from grace from 2023 when he had reached the final in Melbourne. His early exit means that he fell three places (No. 10).

But from Monday he will be out of the Top 10, and it remains to be seen during the weekend if he will be at No. 11 or No. 12.

Alex De Minaur and Taylor Fritz reached the semi-finals in Rotterdam and Delray Beach, knocking him out of the top ten for the first time since March 4, 2019. In the live ATP ranking, he is now No. 11, and if Grigor Dimitrov advances to the final in Rotterdam, he will drop to No. 12.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, who won only one title last year (in Mexico), returned to Los Campos and will defend it next week. The competition is big for entering the top 10, and he will fight hard in the USA, especially in the clay season, to return to high standards.

We remind you that in 2021, he reached No. 3 in the world ranking.

Maria Sakkari will also be out of the top 10 on Monday, the first time since 2021.
