Stefanos Tsitsipas is one of the top players in the ATP. Many consider him to be more than capable of winning Grand Slams on a regular basis too. In fact, Tsitsipas is also the highest-ranked Greek player in history.

In tennis, one does not become a great player without also having a great coach. Thus, it is only understandable that Stefanos has one of the most popular coaches in the world. Tsitsipas is a student at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in France, and his coach is none other Patrick Mouratoglou himself.

In fact, Mouratoglou coaches both Tsitisipas and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams! That is certainly as elite as a classmate could get for the Greek World No. 4.

Stefanos Tsitsipas and his insane training regimen in Dubai

Ahead of the 2022 tennis season that is set to begin in Australia, Tsitsipas has been hard at work in Dubai. Dubai is one of the four training centers that the coaching academy has across the world.

Stefanos Tsitsipas poses with coach Patrick Mouratoglou and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams. The two players share the same coach.

Today, the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, on their official Instagram handle, shared a video of Stefanos Tsitsipas. The Greek star is currently at the academy’s Dubai center, training hard before the season arrives.

In fact, the account even had a hilarious caption to go along with the video, titling it “Pre-TSI-son,” playing on Tsitsipas’ name.

The video is a quick montage of him sprinting and exercising, where he is doing split box lunges and skips. In another part of the video, he takes a shot on the court while shirtless, in cinematic slow-motion. Moreover, one of the most influential songs of all time, ‘Eye of the Tiger’ by Survivor, is playing as the background music.

Furthermore, the Greek is also seen doing Romanian Deadlifts, looking focused and forward. Finally, we see him doing quick sprints against another student at the academy.

Clearly, the Greek is set on making 2022 an even better season for him than this one.

After withdrawing from the ATP finals due to an elbow injury, Tsitsipas’ season certainly ended on a low note.

Moreover, he even reached the World No. 3 ranking this year, before slipping back to No. 4.
