The world no.3 Stefanos Tsitsipas ended his working relationship with his historic coach Patrick Mouratoglou, one of the most important coaches within the ATP and WTA Tours. The two had been collaborating together for several years, since the Greek was only seventeen years-old, but as reported by the Greek portal Sports Feed, the two sides have decided to definitively end relations.
Mouratoglou has worked in recent years with Serena Williams and Simona Halep and is now collaborating with the young Danish talent Holger Rune, one of the new NextGens within the ATP Tour. From now on Stefanos will no longer train in the coach’s academy in Nice but his only managers will remain his father Apostolos and the former tennis player Mark Philippousis.
The two were also close to the Greek talent in the last Australian Open, a tournament where many had noticed Patrick’s absence in the tennis player’s box. Tsitsipas started the season in the best way, a long streak of victories and twelve successes in the first thirteen games of the season.
Stefanos suffered an harsh disappointment in the last challenge, the long-awaited final of the Australian Open 2023 against the Serbian champion Novak Djokovic.
The latest on Stefanos Tsitsipas
Tsitsipas has shown great tennis for this first part of the season, showing continuity both with Greece and on a personal level.
However, the tennis player gave up in the final of the Australian Open, collapsing in three sets against Serbian champion Novak Djokovic. It was a highly anticipated match, the second Grand Slam final of his career and always with Novak, but the Greek talent failed to compete and was literally destroyed in the final act of the tournament.
Match without history and now Tsitsipas will be back on the field next week, in the field of the ATP tournament in Rotterdam. Tsitsipas is one of the most anticipated tennis players and according to many he is one of the main candidates to stop the race for the titles of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Now the goal of the Greek talent are the Indian Wells and Miami Open ATP Masters 1000, on US hard courts, and a good tournament at the Roland Garros.
