Nadal hopes Tsitsipas to win Grand Slam title in 2020

After defeating the Greek tennis player in the final match of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Rafael Nadal said that Tsitsipas had a bright future next year.

Although "giant killer" Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals, he could not do the same thing against Rafael Nadal. After defeating the King of Clay in the first set by a 7-6 score, he lost both remaining ones.

It was a match that Tsitsipas had many chances to finish as the winner, but he missed all of them. In terms of Nadal, he played with the best form with brilliant saves to lift the fifth Mubadala title in his career.

Consequently, Nadal overcame Djokovic to become the greatest player in the history of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship.

However, the No. 1 tennis player said that he found it very difficult to beat Tsitsipas at the moment. After one year, Tsitsipas' ability improved impressively. At the 2019 ATP Finals, he defeated many top players to conquer the biggest title in his career.

"I know that Stefanos has big ambitions that he wants to do in 2020", said Nadal, who supposed it meant a Grand Slam title.

"It is good for young players because they need to have ambitions to enhance themselves. Although Stefanos will meet many obstacles on his way, he can overcome them, as he did in 2019".
