Defeating Mirra Andreeva 6-2, 6-3, it was a different feeling for Paula Badosa as she sealed a first win in some time at the Rome Open and she had also had to adapt to being single again after breaking up with Stefanos Tsitsipas.

This is what Paula Badosa said today in Rome about her split with Stefanos Tsitsipas. Stef is the Right Person, a great person but the timing is wrong for both, talking about her roller-coaster of emotions & physical / mental health over the last 1.5 years that Paula has been…
