Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of the many top players committed to compete in the Zhuhai Championship that will take place from 23 to 29 September 2019. The event has relocated from Shenzhen and aims to make huge improvements. Not only Tsitsipas but also Roberto Bautista Agut, Nick Kyrgios, Gael Monfils and Alex De Minaur among the others have confirmed their appearance.
Tennis World USA asked the Tournament Director Leon Sun if he sees some similarities between Tsitsipas and Roger” federer>. The Greek defeated the Swiss earlier this year in the Australian Open. “Not really. Their styles of game and personalities are so different.
Stefanos is a major part of the future of men’s tennis and has already arrived now breaking into the top 5 in the world. He is a huge star and great he has chosen to play our event”, said Sun. On Kyrgios making his first appearance in the event, Sun added: “Nick is looking forward to playing the event.
The travel is easy from Australia – just 8-9 hours flying, similar time zone and then a quick car ride across the bridge. We are sure he will love the city and the stadium and that will mean he enjoys the week. The fans are certainly looking forward to seeing him in person.”
