Stefanos Tsitsipas enjoys a stellar reputation in his home nation. His ranking of No. 3 in the world make him the highest-ranked Greek player in history.
Tsitsipas quickly established his credentials of being capable of defeating the best in the business. His runner-up finish in the 2018 edition of the Canadian Open proved that.
The Greek became the youngest player to defeat four top ten opponents in a single tournament, during that stellar campaign showcasing his potential to the full extent.
Tsitsipas has won 7 singles career titles so far, with 2019 marking his most successful season ever. And he will certainly be expected to surge ahead and record more success in the game, considering the prowess he enjoys and damage he is capable of.
One of the biggest weapons in the Greek star’s favour is his ability to hit powerful groundstroke winners as well as a supremely strong forehand. The latter enables Tsitsipas to finish points off of the first serve.
And here we are going to look at his rivalries and his head-to-head record against a number of notable players on the tour.
This is arguably the match that made the Greek star make the world take notice. When these two faced off in the 2021 French Open final, Tsitsipas took Djokovic to the limit.
But their head to head record is fairly one-sided. The Serbian has won six of their 8 matches that they’ve taken part in.

These two have yet another one sided head to head record. They have faced off nine times, with Nadal having won a whopping 7 of those matches.

Tsitsipas has only faced the Spaniard on two occasions but both times he walked away with the win. It remains to be seen if Bautista Agut can reverse this trend.

This one is shaded by Tsitsipas but only just; the two have faced off against each other five times thus far, with Tsitsipas winning thrice.

Here’s an interesting one, as Tsitsipas has surprisingly lost more matches against Thiem than he’s won. Thiem has won 5 of their 8 matches till this point.

This right here is another one-sided rivalry, and it is not in favour of Tiafoe. Tsitsipas has won 3 of their 4 matches held to this point.

These two have only faced off thrice, and Tsitsipas has a narrow 2-1 head to head record against the Frenchman.

Most would think a rising star like Tsitsipas would have the beating of an inconsistent player like Kyrgios. However, the mercurial Aussie has a 2-1 win record against Tsitsipas.
