Tsitsipas second top-3 player in Rotterdam

After Daniil Medvedev, number 2 in the world, Stefanos Tsitsipas has also confirmed his arrival at the 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. The 23-year-old Greek, number 3 in the ATP Ranking, will be in action for the sixth time in Rotterdam Ahoy. The tournament will take place from 5 to 13 February 2022.

Tournament director Richard Krajicek: "There is a special bond between Stefanos Tsitsipas and the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. In 2017 he made his debut on the ATP Tour with us. He will never forget that wildcard, which is why he now likes to come back to the Netherlands. Conversely, we would of course very much like to see him again. He combines a beautiful playing style with a unique dose of charisma.”

Tsitsipas in Rotterdam
At his first performance in Rotterdam in 2017, Tsonga proved too strong in the first round. Nevertheless, Tsitsipas makes a big impression in his debut in an ATP main tournament. A year later, he failed in the qualifying tournament, but after that his development went quickly. He achieved his best result earlier this year, when he had to acknowledge the superiority of Andrey Rublev in the semifinals, who eventually captured the title in Rotterdam.

From NextGen to World Top
In 2018 Stefanos Tsitsipas won the NextGen ATP Finals. The championship for the eight best players aged 21 and under was the starting signal for his storming of the world top. A year later he already won the ATP Finals in London and reached the global top-10. Since his semi-final place in Rotterdam Ahoy earlier this year, he has been in the top-5 and has now risen to third place thanks to two tournament victories and three places in the final in 2021.

ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament
The 49th ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will take place from 5 to 13 February 2022. Richard Krajicek: "With Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas we have made a good start with the field of participants. Together with the players, we are immensely looking forward to welcoming the fans again in Rotterdam Ahoy. We are ready to make it a great tennis party.”
