Would "μία κούπα νερό" be correct here as well?

Would "επίσης, θέλω ποτήρι του νερού" work?

In Greek, just like for example Italian, the verb ending always indicates the person, so you can always omit the subject, unless you want to specify it. For example, if you want to stress that you, not someone else, wants the water, or to distinguish between αυτός and αυτή in case you are with multiple friends.
