‘I want to become a complete player,’ says Stefanos Tsitsipas as he targets grass improvements

Stefanos Tsitsipas says he intends on mastering the grass court game in his pursuit to become ‘a complete player.’

Tsitsipas, in theory, should have a game very well-suited to grass, although he is yet to back that up in his career.

The Greek has only played seven events on grass during his career so far, and he has never managed to get beyond the round of 16 in any of them.

That record includes two first round exits at Wimbledon in just three entries there, but he is determined to put that right after the clay season comes to an end.

“I’m looking forward to the grass,” Tsitsipas told ATPtour.com, “and then the hard court season from August onwards.

“I want to be a complete player and that’s important for my psychological state knowing that I can play on every surface.

“I’m fighting for it every single week. I didn’t have a very good week in Madrid, but so far it’s looking good.

“I’ve been very consistent, which obviously helps, being in that situation.”

“I’ve been looking forward to being able to perform the same way, do better and perform even better in the future.

“I think you can take the good and the bad things from every situation. Whether that would be a first round or winning a tournament. You can always come into the next week with something better.

“It wasn’t meant to be for me that day [in Madrid]. I took the opportunity for me to come to Rome earlier to prepare. I’ve acclimatised to the new conditions.”
