Stefanos Tsitsipas is back on the courts. An elbow injury forced him to undergo surgery and miss the ATP Finals. A short time has passed, but the recovery is on the right track. “I’ve only been training for a week. I considered it necessary to have surgery because I had been in permanent pain for years while playing. I wanted to return as soon as possible, but without fear of relapsing from the injury. It’s fantastic to be on the track without feeling pain and see what I can do with any movement. I’m using a muscle that I didn’t even know existed because my injury didn’t allow me to move it. Now I find myself with a new challenge. I had changed my style because of that ailment and now I can play without anything that limits me, “said the world number 4 in an interview on Sky Sports.
The 23-year-old Greek did not hesitate to speak about the controversy that arose around the vaccination or not of certain players in the tournament. “I do not promote vaccination, but I am not against it either. I support whoever wants to do it. I am an athlete, not a doctor, so my perspective on these matters may not be correct. I have been vaccinated in order to have a normal life, but everyone has the freedom to decide. I believe that we must respect what Novak (Djokovic) does ”, he concluded.
