Stefanos Tsitsipas sets sights on Australian Open title


World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas has set his sights on claiming the Australian Open (AO) title in 2024.

According to, the 25-year-old reigning finalist hopes to make the Australian Open his first ever grand slam victory.

“[Australia] is one of my favourite destinations, my ‘home slam’ is located there,” the Greek tennis player said.

“The very first time I visited Australia I got an understanding of just how warm and nice people are there, but also the Greek community, let’s not forget about them, they’re so vibrant and so intense, they bring so much energy every single year.”

Tsitsipas lost to tennis legend, Novak Djokovic last year in the AO final and says the Serbian still poses a “problem” for him.

Despite the challenge, Tsitsipas hopes he can use the beginning of the year as a mental reset and is determined Australia is the perfect place for him to claim victory.
