Three top Greek athletes hang out in Athens

Advertisment

Stefanos Tsitsipas, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Emmanuel Karalis, are the “three musketeers.”

Last week, Tsitsipas made his fans worldwide proud of him, being the first Greek player in history to reach the semifinals at the French Open, and he played the absolute highest quality of tennis against Novak Djokovic. The blockbuster clash between the two rivalries which lasted just under four hours, ended with Djokovic winning  6-3, 6-2, 5-7, 4-6, 6-1. He has returned to Athens to rest and recover from a leg injury.

Antetokounmpo has returned to Greece after the NBA finished its season in a ‘bubble’ in Disney, Orlando. It is recalled earlier this year he won his second straight NBA MVP award and has been named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020.

Emmanuel “Manolo” Karalis is a 20 year old professional pole vaulter. He is recognised for having competed in several World and European Championships as part of Greece’s national team and for having set several youth world records in vaulting.
