No.7 in the world rankings!
Stefanos Tsitsipas, after his impressive appearance in the Madrid tournament in May 2019, is ranked No. 7 in the world ranking in tennis. The 20-year-old Greek with 3.790 points holds the best ever ranking of his career!
Tsitsipas’s dreamy course in Madrid was marked by the legendary victory over Rafael Nadal with 2-1 sets (6-4, 2-6, 6-3) in the semifinals of the event!
This was the first time that Tsitsipas wins Rafa Nadal as he has had three defeats and 0-7 sets against the Spanish superstar so far. Stefanos became the 13th player in history, who manages to bend the left-handed Spaniard on his favorite surface.
In the final, the Greek player despite his amazing effort and performance, especially in the second set, was defeated with 2-0 sets (6-3, 6-4) by the great Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, who won his 33rd title in a Masters Event.
