Stefanos Tsitsipas and his message for his girlfriend Theodora Petalas
Stefanos Tsitsipas is recovering mentally and physically from a mighty US Open. The Greek sensation hoped to have a great run in New York, but his expectations were broken in the third round when Carlos Alcaraz Garfia defeated him in 5 sets.
Andy Murray accused Stefanos Tsitsipas of cheating during their first-round match when Tsitsipas got a long break before the 5th set. Stefanos was already widely blasted by Sascha Zverev during their Cincinnati semi-final when the Greek player got another prolonged toilet break.
After losing in the US Open, Stefanos decided to take a break at the Azores in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
He posted a lovely message on Instagram referring to his time with his beautiful girlfriend, Theodora Petalas.
“The moment you realize how important time is, your entire perspective will change.”
Next week Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas headline the fourth edition of the Laver Cup, to be held 24-26 September in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Laver Cup field includes four other Top 10 players, Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev, Matteo Berrettini and Casper Ruud, who will join Medvedev and Tsitsipas on Team Europe.
Denis Shapovalov, Felix Auger-Aliassime and Diego Schwartzman lead the charge for Team World.
