He said that his form on the court will do the talking. He also mentioned that the year has just started and there is a long way to go.

“Let tennis do the talking,” Tsitsipas said. “We have a long year ahead of us. Let us all play our best tennis, and let’s see who is the one that deserves it at the end of the year.” 

 

Recently, the Greek player has been caught up in an injury. He suffered an injury during the ATP Cup.

Recently, Novak Djokovic was also granted a medical exemption to participate in the tournament. He is the most successful player on the Australian court. He has won 9 titles here in Australia. Thus he would like to increase his tally to 10 this year.
