The youngest player in the ATP top 10 graced the Plaza Dilao courts of Philippines Columbian Association, where the home crowd witnessed his elite tennis skills in the Davis Cup World Group II qualifiers that were held in Manila last March 6 to 7. 

Inevitably, Tsitsipas led Greece to a World Group II berth with a 4-1 tie victory over the Philippines. 

As he continues to work hard and climb up the ranks in the men’s professional circuit, Tsitsipas appreciates the support he receives in his goal of making it to the top. –
