Tsitsipas gets Greg backing
Greg Rusedski believes that Stefanos Tsitsipas can emerge as the heir to Roger Federer.
The Greek emerged in 2018 with a strong start to the season that continued into the summer as he reached the final of the Rogers Cup, maintaining his momentum to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open.
A win over Rafael Nadal helped him reach another Masters final in Madrid to further boost his reputation and the 20-year-old would have gone further at the French Open had he not been overhauled in a five-set epic against Stan Wawrinka in the fourth round.
Tsitsipas will have taken confidence from that match, having dominated for large swathes, and Rusedski has compared him to Federer, tipping the Athenian to enjoy similar success.
"He's so much better as a player than he was a year ago and he's getting better," Rusedski told Amazon Prime. "His transitioning game coming forward, playing doubles so much more this year. I think he will be a Wimbledon champion as well as a world number one. He's that good.
"He reminds me of a young Roger Federer. A guy who's got that full package.
"He looks a little bit like Bjorn Borg the way he walks around the court but what I like, he's a complete player and he has this mental fortitude where he believes he belongs."
