In the tennis buzz, our mate Stefanos Tsitsipas is back at the Aussie Open, dead set on snatching his first-ever Grand Slam title. This 25-year-old Greek legend, ranked sixth globally, ain’t a newbie to the Grand Slam final vibe, and he’s fair dinkum about taking his game to the next level in 2024.

For Tsitsipas, the Aussie Open is like a second home, and he’s had some ripper moments there, making it to the semi-finals four times, especially smashing it in 2019.
Recently, on The AO Show podcast, he shared his stoked feelings about being back at the event that’s seen some of his best wins.
“Australia is one of my favourite places, my ‘home slam’ is right there,” Tsitsipas grinned. “It’s an amazing country with heaps of beauty, both on and off the court. Aussie fans are top-notch; they’ve always got my back, and it’s a blast playing in cities all around the country.”
Even though Tsitsipas has been in the ATP top 10 since 2019, he’s up against some tough competition. In his words, “Right now, there are heaps of legends playing top-notch tennis. This is probably the trickiest part of my tennis career, figuring out how to beat these blokes and climb up the rankings.”
Novak Djokovic is still a big challenge for the next-gen players, Tsitsipas included. After copping a loss to Djokovic in last year’s final, Tsitsipas is fair dinkum about making 2024 his time to shine.
“Maybe we can finally show our real potential, just once,” Tsitsipas cheekily said about the younger players. “I hope we can find a way to get there and start owning our own zone.”
As Tsitsipas looks at the Aussie Open as a fresh start, he reckons Australia is the perfect place for a reset.
“Every year is a chance for me to start anew. I’m always looking at how I can do more,” Tsitsipas said. “The first time I visited Australia, I felt how warm and friendly the people are. And let’s not forget the Greek community; they’re full of energy every year. Australia will always have a special place in my heart.”
With everyone eagerly waiting, the tennis world is keeping a keen eye on Tsitsipas, wondering if the Aussie Open 2024 will be the tourney where he bags his first Grand Slam, creating a new chapter in his already legendary career.
