Alexander was the descendant of a tennis players’ family and he has 13 careers titles and 22 finals. This German player have been praised by his older mates like Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic as a possible future No. 1
The last but not the least is Stefanos Tsitsipas (August 12, 1998). The Greek tennis player occupies the sixth position in the ATP Rankings. He is the youngest ranked in the Top 10 and the highest-ranked Greek player in history.
His big moment was when he beat Roger Federer in the fourth round of the Australia Open 2019 and shocked the world. The Greek has five career titles which includes the 2019 ATP Finals. The player has all the neccesary skills to become one of the greatest tennis players in the future.
