Stefanos Tsitsipas Qualifies For Fifth Consecutive ATP Finals

Stefanos Tsitsipas Qualifies For Fifth Consecutive ATP Finals

by Evita Mueller

Stefanos Tsitsipas was not officially confirmed for the ATP Finals a few days ago, but with a few wins at the 2023 Paris Masters, he's in.

The Greek player has been a solid performer at the ATP Finals over the years, winning the event on his debut in 2019. It was one of the last editions to be held in London, as the event has since moved to Turin.

He's been okay in Turin, especially last year, which was his best outing, and he'll try to do it again this year. Despite not being officially confirmed before the Paris Masters, Tsitsipas knew he would likely be part of the event.

He only needed a few wins in Paris to officially book his spot, and he's done it with a run to the quarter-finals. It's been a strange year for the Greek player who started it really well.

Australia has been a great place for him historically, but this year was the first time he advanced to the final. Obviously, Djokovic proved too good in the final, but the year looked very promising.

It didn't go as well as he had hoped, as he bombed the clay season and struggled in North America as well. He won only 51 matches so far, which is 13 less than last year, proving his struggles.

His only trophy came in Los Cabos, and his only Top 10 win of the year was a day ago against Alexander Zverev. He played a lot of tennis this year but simply wasn't as efficient as in the previous year; however, his form is trending upward.

If he can finish strongly in Paris and at the ATP Finals, it might save the season a bit. It would also position him for a solid start next year. We'll see later today how he handles Karen Khachanov.
