STEFANOS Tsitsipas is the new star of the tennis world and confirmed his return to The Boodles 2019 which takes place from June 25-29 at the Stoke Park Country Club, Hotel & Spa.

The Greek sensation beat Roger Federer en route to the semi-finals at the Australian Open, and he undoubtedly played one of the matches of the year against Stan Wawrinka at Roland Garros.

He has been a regular at

The Boodles

since a junior but will this summer take centre stage for the grass court event.

Tsitsipas, 20, made his first visit to The Boodles in 2016 - the year he went on to win the Wimbledon Boys’ Doubles Championships.

Since 2018, where he even found the time to put actor Jason Isaacs through his paces on court, the talented youngster has risen to number six in the world rankings and will be considered a genuine contender for the Wimbledon title.

Tsitsipas said: “The Boodles is such a great event and I’m excited to play again this year. It’s always a lot of fun while giving me the perfect preparation for Wimbledon.”

Joining Tsitsipas will be former US Open champion and double Olympic silver medallist Juan Martin del Potro.

The Argentine, currently ranked number 12 in the world, is finally injury-free after several surgeries and at full fitness is a true threat on grass leading into Wimbledon.

Denis Shapovalov is one of an exciting crop of Canadian players making a real impact on the ATP World Tour.

Aged only 20, Shapovalov is currently ranked number 25 in the world and, as one of the exciting ATP Next Gren, he has a game that is pure box office.

The Boodles features the world’s best tennis players competing just days before Wimbledon on the grass courts of the world famous Stoke Park Country Club, Hotel & Spa.

Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are all a part of the roll of honour of The Boodles.
