The father of Stefanos Tsitsipas claims his “main goal” is to win Wimbledon as he prepares for 2019 by training with Roger Federer.
The 20-year-old starlet became the first Greek player to win an ATP title at the Stockholm Open in October and then went on to win the Next Gen Finals, which saw him named the most improved player at the ATP World Tour Awards.

Tsitsipas finished the year in 15th spot in the world rankings and his coach and father Apostolos Tsitsipas claims he is now looking to continue progressing to bigger things in 2019.
He said: “The goal was to crack top 50, it was much better as he cracked top 15. “In the next two weeks we will set new goals, but the main one is to be at the top as long as possible because it’s important to play at a high level. “The goal is to win Grand Slams, because winning a Major is every player’s dream.
“The main goal is to win Wimbledon. That tournament suits him perfectly. He can do it.”
Tsitsipas will spend the off-season working alongside 37-year-old 20-time Grand Slam winner, Federer, and his father has backed the Swiss legend to help “inspire” him.
He added: “Players need inspiration. They receive it from parents, coaches and the whole environment, but mainly from other players. “Stefanos was inspired by Roger. He is a great tennis player and a great person. “If we look at out lives, we got inspired by someone, who had an important role in our life.”
