Stefanos Tsitsipas will leave Melbourne with at least one honour after a souvlaki was officially named after him.
The Greek sensation, 20, has embarked on a spectacular run at the Australian Open and faces Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals on Thursday.
Melbourne restaurant Stalactites offered to name a souvlaki in his honour – as they did for Marcos Baghdatis when he reached the Australian Open final in 2006 – and it was confirmed hours before the meeting with Nadal.
The Tsitsipas Souvlaki is on the menu and includes "lamb, tomato, tzatziki, fresh pomegranate, fresh basil and mint, crumbed feta, chips, and a touch of chilli", based on feedback from the star.
"We feel so proud of Stefanos' achievements in the Australian Open, and we are excited to create a souvlaki in his honour," Stalactites managing director Nicole Papasavas said in a statement.
"We welcome his tick of approval and the Stalactites team wishes him all the best in [Thursday's] match."
