Stefanos Tsitsipas and Ash Barty

Stefanos Tsitsipas possesses a strong forehand, and he frequently commands points by driving his forehand into the corners and pushing his opponent about the court. He can also flatten his forehand and win short balls with it. Tsitsipas possesses a strong first serve, which almost always results in a slew of free points. He possesses a stunning one-handed backhand, although his weaker wing is generally regarded. While he has the ability to hit a clean down-the-line rocket at any time to break open a point, he also has the ability to make a few unforced errors with his backhand.

World no.5 Stefanos Tsitsipas is truly a skilled player at such a young age. The Greek is one of the few players who isn’t expected to exhibit perfect strokes in order to win points during matches, and he has seldom disappointed fans.

Tsitsipas is an all-court player who enjoys attacking from the baseline but also frequently advances to the net. He has a lot of topspin on both his forehand and one-handed backhand, and his strong groundstrokes can open up the court. He also employs the backhand slice to change up the tempo of the game. Tsitsipas is a skilled volleyer who isn’t afraid to pluck the ball from the air.

Ash Barty’s influence on Stefanos Tsitsipas?

This can be seen in the Monte Carlo Masters when he is playing against Serbian player Laslo Djere in the third round of the tournament. In the first set of the match, Tsitsipas managed to hit a beautiful forehand shot that turned the point around.

Another beautiful just near the line is a shot that is very difficult to produce and is Ash Barty’s specialty. This shot could be seen when Tsitsipas was in his second set of the game and produced the most amazing shot that left the audience wonderstruck. The ball was returned softly by the Greek which made it impossible for Djere to return the shot. This shot was of course met with the loudest cheers from fans who were awestruck by the beauty of the shot.

Let’s hope the Greek continues playing such great shots and rises to greater heights in the long run. The Twitter video got over a 100 likes and some of the comments are shown below:
