Stefanos Tsitsipas, the tennis sensation, has emerged as one of the most accomplished players in recent years. The Greek star secured 10 ATP singles titles. He ranks 6th in the world as per the Association of Tennis Professionals. Meanwhile, the 24-year-old star expresses admiration for Kylian Mbappe’s influence on the soccer pitch that encouraged him to improve his gameplay over the course of the seasons.

Stefanos Tsitsipas considers the Parisian star the best sportsman for his scoring prowess, having scored 278 goals. Moreover, Stefanos Tsitsipas was born in the same year as the French star in 1998, which fueled his interest in Mbappe’s illustrious career.

The tennis star said in an interview, “We’re born the same year with him. I am looking up at him. I can consider him now one of my sports idols. I am not ashamed to say that because he truly is an icon. I really admire his style, his personality, and his very interesting character in football.

Apparently, the PSG star has 6 Ligue 1 titles as well as the 2018 FIFA World Cup in his trophy cabinet, which underscores the impact he demonstrated over the years. The French icon continues to persist in delivering his emphatic performances in the recent Ligue 1 fixtures.

However, Kylian Mbappe is yet to emulate such form in the Champions League. He scored just two goals in four matches in UCL. PSG did not secure their qualification spot to date after losing their previous match against AC Milan with a 2-1 scoreline. As a result, the Parisians aim to turn their fate in the Champions League when they take on Newcastle United this Tuesday, following a loss in the away leg of this encounter.
