By his steep standards, 2020 hasn’t been a stellar season from the reigning champion.
The gregarious Greek has fallen in the third round of both the Australian Open and US Open with one title to his name in Marseille back in February. The 22-year-old was also denied the title by Djokovic in Dubai prior to lockdown.
Tsitsipas shot back into the limelight on the clay as a finalist in Hamburg just prior to Roland-Garros.
In Paris the world No.6 battled back from two sets down for the first time ever in the opening encounter against Jaume Munar.
Fast forward to the quarter-finals and he brushed aside Rublev in straight sets, before a gutsy five-set defeat at the hands of Djokovic.
Expect another strong showing from the Greek in east London.
