Stefanos Tsitsipas, the Greek tennis sensation, recently expressed his admiration for French soccer star Kylian Mbappe, calling him his “sporting idol.” The 22-year-old tennis player, who is ranked sixth in the world, spoke about Mbappe in an interview with FirstSportz, a leading sports news platform.
Tsitsipas expressed his admiration for the 22-year-old Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward, who is considered one of the brightest talents in world football. The tennis player lauded Mbappe’s talent and athleticism, describing him as a “complete player” and an inspiration to athletes across different sports.
The young Greek star also revealed that he has been following Mbappe’s career closely and has been impressed by his achievements at such a young age. Tsitsipas even went as far as to say that he looks up to Mbappe and views him as a role model for aspiring athletes.
“I admire Kylian Mbappe a lot. He’s young, talented, and an extraordinary athlete. He has achieved so much at such a young age, and I really look up to him. He is my sporting idol,” Tsitsipas said during the interview.
Mbappe, who has been a key player for both PSG and the French national team, has won multiple domestic titles and was a crucial part of France’s successful 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign. His speed, skill, and ability to score goals have made him one of the most sought-after players in the world.
Given Tsitsipas’ own rise to stardom in the tennis world, his admiration for Mbappe’s achievements highlights the universal appeal of sports and the impact that athletes can have on each other across different disciplines. As both players continue to excel in their respective sports, it’s clear that their admiration for each other’s talents will only continue to grow.
