Team Greece believe they can make a strong impact at the ATP Cup in Sydney this year due to their past experience at the tournament and the constant support of Greek Australian fans.
The team is captained by Apostolos Tsitsipas and consists of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Petros Tsitsipas, Michail Pervolarakis, Markos Kalovelonis and Aristotelis Thanos.
Speaking at the ATP Cup Media Day on Thursday, Stefanos Tsitsipas, who is leading Team Greece, said he has faith his team “can sort it out in two matches [and] not have to go all the way to three [in each tie].”
“I think we have a team of young players that are just hungrier than anyone else. That’s what makes us kind of stand out and we have so much energy starting next week,” Tsitsipas said.
The World No.4 added that representing Greece on the ATP Cup level “means a lot” to the whole team and they hope to make Greek fans in Australia proud.
“I know there is plenty of Greek-Australians that are going to go wild watching us play,” he said.
Greece plays Team Poland, featuring Hubert Hurkacz, in Group D on Saturday, then Diego Schwartzman-led Argentina on Monday and Georgia on Wednesday.
