The Greek has launched ‘Beyond 100 Support’, an auction for which any money raised will go towards the Player Relief Programme, which will provide much-needed assistance to the players who are particularly affected during this time of the coronavirus crisis.
“As the youngest player in the Top 10, I feel responsible to help the future of tennis. I understand how critical it is for the sustainability of both ATP and WTA players ranked beyond the Top 100 and how difficult it is to make a living from professional tennis, especially with no tennis events going on for an undefined period of time,” Tsitsipas said. “Through the creation of ‘Beyond 100 Support’, I hope to start a movement that my fellow players will follow suit.”
Tsitsipas has donated several items to the auction, including autographed racquets, match kits and the opportunity to feature as a guest in one of the Greek’s YouTube vlogs. The ATP has donated Nitto ATP Finals, Next Gen ATP Finals and ATP Cup experiences.
