The battle of the youngsters is here for all of us to watch, as Stefanos Tsitsipas meets Alex de Minaur as Team Greece and Team Australia battle here at the 2021 ATP Cup. Will de Minaur be able to cause the upset here against the far superior Tsitsipas, or will Tsitsipas be able to give some little positivity to Team Greece?
Stefanos Tsitsipas’ role in Team Greece here at the ATP Cup is to really provide them with their only victories, if any. Team Greece is massively unwhelmed with talent as out of the 4 players playing for Team Greece, Tsitsipas is the only one ranked within the top 400 in the world. Tsitsipas knows that he will not only have to be absolutely incredible in his Single’s performances, but he will also have to hope that the doubles team, with or without him, are able to get some wins under their belt. Will Tsitsipas be able to give Team Greece some hope here against de Minaur, or will it be a repeat of their incredible dissatisfaction last year at the ATP Cup?
Alex de Minaur has started the year in incredible fashion, winning the first title of the season at the 2021 Antalya Open, being a dominating force throughout the tournament, beating the likes of David Goffin and Alexander Bublik. De Minaur will want to help Team Australia reach the semifinals here again, and he knows that one of his best chances to do so, will be by beating Team Greece. De Minaur is continuously improving as a player, and he will definitely be filled with confidence playing in Australia, with the entire nation, and crowd backing him to get the job done. Will the young gun be able to carry this team to success?
This is going to be the fourth meeting between both players, with Stefanos Tsitsipas leading the head to head 3-0. Looking at these two players, it is completely obvious who is the more talented, and who has the brighter future on the ATP Tour. Stefanos Tsitsipas, although only slightly older than de Minaur, has achieved much more than his opponent, and I would be shocked if he lost to him here at the ATP Cup. Tsitsipas has beaten some of the best players in the world, including all of the Big 3, and he definitely will be ready to give Team Greece some hope in this bout against Team Australia.
