I believe Tsitsipas went through Mouratotoglou Tennis Academy Champseed Foundation — so I think all his costs were covered. But adding to that point to be a successful tennis player in some capacity you'll need funding whether that's from your family or outside support. You can only hustle yourself so far. That's the privilege. Being a rec player sure that's a different lens.Nadal is a poor family?
or perhaps Federer comes from a poor family?
even Djokovic family wasn't that poor. Of course all in relative terms.
To begin with, they had a business.
To continue with, if rumours about Srdjan borrowing money from mafia are true, he needed something as collateral. I hope you don't believe that Serbian mafia sponsored Novak cause they believed in his talent.
Stefanos father left his work some 10-12 years ago, isn't it? to be able to train his kid.
By the way, Stefanos isn't the only kid, they are 2 or 3 brothers. At least 2 of them play tennis.
Can you tell me how to finance my family for 10 years, without work, spending all my time on training my kids to play tennis?
