Greece’s tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas has stated that he is ‘upset’ about not playing with his girlfriend Paula Badosa in the doubles category in the French Open. The two were involved in a very public relationship and became one of the most followed couples in the world of tennis.
Recently, Badosa announced that, with mutual understanding, both players have decided to end their more than 12-month-long relationship. The news broke the hearts of the fans, who also expressed their frustration on social media platforms but they got back together soon after.
However, recently, the fans of Tsitsidosa were thrilled to know that Badosa and Tsitsipas would play in the doubles category in the ongoing French Open. That, however, did not materialise as the Greek tennis star decided to withdraw from the competition in order to focus on his singles and men’s doubles category clash.
The 25-year-old was recently quoted in a report where he stated that he is still upset about the development as he really wanted to play with his ex-girlfriend and blamed the Paris weather for making it hard for him to participate in all three events at a same time.
Stefanos Tsitsipas is playing in the men's singles and doubles category in the French Open.
"I'm still upset about it,” he said. “I have to blame the weather in Paris. It was a disaster. I didn't expect that I would have to play two doubles in one day, especially a day before a big match like the singles quarterfinals. It's too much for anyone and I think it was a wise decision to retire from one of the boards.”
In the men’s singles category, Tsitsipas has booked his place in the quarterfinal after beating Italy’s Matteo Arnaldi with a score of 3-6, 7-6, 6-2, 6-2. He will face Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz in the last-eight clash.
In the doubles category, Tsitsipas, along with his partner and brother Petros Tsitsipas, will be playing in the third-round clash against the French duo of Gregoire Jacq and Manuel Guinard.
