Stefanos Tsitsipas names his favourite ever tennis player during hilarious interview


He’s the most talked about talent in tennis right now but who would Stefanos Tsitsipas say is his favourite tennis player? That was the revealing question asked of him during a fun interview with a 9 year old tennis fan…
