Paula Badosa triumphs as Stefanos Tsitsipas and his brother Petros' new doubles coach

The relationship between Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas has been one of the most talked about topics of the 2023 tennis season in both the ATP and WTA.

The two tennis players, known collectively as Tsitsidosa, have always talked about the good they do for each other, and that thanks to their union they have managed to materialize a change of mentality when facing their respective professional careers.

Now, as published by Tennis Channel, Tsitsipas and Badosa have decided to continue deepening their professional relationship together. As confirmed by the Greek in a statement, the Spanish tennis player coached both himself and his brother, Petros Tsitsipas, ahead of their doubles matches at the Antwerp European Open.

"Not many people know this, but Paula was the first person to spend 3 or 4 hours with us at the US Open coaching us for doubles," Tsitsipas said.

"Winning our first doubles title together [he and his brother at the European Open] meant a lot to him, to me, to my parents and to Paula, who is our doubles coach. She was preparing us for these kinds of matches and present for our run in the tournament."

Paula Badosa's direction worked perfectly, as the Greek sibling pair managed to win the tournament after defeating Czech Adam Pavlasek and Uruguayan Ariel Behar in the final after a marathon three-set match, 7-6(5), 4-6, 8-10.

An important victory at the Paris Masters

Outside of doubles, Tsitsipas has managed to secure a key victory at the Paris Masters, the last ATP 1000 tournament of the season, beating Felix Auger-Aliassime, who had just won the Swiss Indoors Basel 6-3, 7-6(4), to qualify for the round of 16 of the event.
