Coming in at number 2 on the list is the fiery Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas has had a lackluster end to 2023, but when he is on, he has all the shots to beat the very best in the game. He also remains quite popular off the court, due to his social media posts and heavily-documented relationship with Paula Badosa.
Stefanos Tsitsipas has competed in the finals of the biggest tournaments in the world. He is a two-time major finalist, having finished runner-up at the 2021 French Open and the 2023 Australian Open. Tsitsipas owns 10 career singles titles on the ATP tour, including two Masters 1000 titles and an ATP Finals title. In total, Tsitsipas has reached 27 singles finals on tour.
Tsitsipas is extremely talented and fun to watch. His one-handed backhand is a thing of beauty (when he is consistent with it, of course), and he has the ability to play from every part of the court. He can be pretty volatile mentally, which could be a reason why he has yet to win a singles major.
Can Stefanos Tsitsipas snag a Major?
Tsitsipas has remained in the top ten of the singles rankings for over 4 consecutive years. What makes this achievement even more astounding is the fact that he is still only 25 years of age. While his form in recent months has left a lot to be desired, he is too good to not find himself in more major finals. Expect him to take home at least one major.
