Stefanos Tsitsipas reminisces his childhood dream!
Recently in an interview with the ATP, Setafnos was asked a series of questions. He was also asked about his childhood to which he shared some of the beautiful memories from the time he started learning tennis.
Tsitsipas recalled the time from his first-ever tennis classes. He said that whenever his parents were late to pick him up from class, he would pass the time by playing against the wall and imagining that a Major championship was on the line.
“I remember finishing with practice and my parents would be very late to pick me up, like a couple of hours and I would stay and play on the wall for hours, recreating a Wimbledon or Roland Garros title playing against that wall,” Stefanos said.
“Thinking about it now, I have come a long way.”
“I remember next to the tennis club there were neighbors and it was a residential area and I was creating a lot of noise when playing against the wall and people didn’t like that. But I kept playing,” he added.
