Badosa fires back at critics blaming her for Tsitsipas' recent approach to tennis - "You always have to judge and find blame"

Spanish tennis star Paula Badosa has lashed out at critics who believe the former World No.3 is to responsible for boyfriend Stefanos Tsitsipas' new perspective on tennis.

In a recent interview with Greek publication Kathimerini, Tsitsipas spoke about how he now longer desires to be the best in tennis, adding he was more focused on achieving a balance between his personal and professional life.

"I certainly think about it a lot, but the top isn’t everything," said the Greek star. "I was addicted to this target when I was younger and this deprived me of something.

“The key is finding a balance between your private life, building something with someone, and moving ahead in your career with that person’s help.

"Having (Paula Badosa) in my life helps me a lot. It has changed my approach to the sport in a way I never would have expected."

Spanish journalist Jose Moron took to Twitter to give his opinion on Tsitsipas' comments.

"Tsitsipas reveals that Badosa has made him change the perspective of his career and his ambitions as a tennis player," he wrote.

Upon learning of this, Badosa responded to the claim, stating Moron had intentionally misinterpreted her boyfriend's statement.

"Always misinterpreting words. It makes me a little tired that you always have to judge and find blame. He doesn't refer to that, and it seems incredible that he has to go out and explain himself,” wrote the 2021 Indian Wells champion.
