Stefanos Tsitsipas: How he wished a happy birthday to his little sister

Stefanos Tsitsipas's little sister Elizabeth is celebrating her birthday today.

The Greek tennis champion wanted to send her his wishes in public and posted a joint snapshot of them on his personal Instagram account.

In the caption of his post he wrote: "I’ve always been here for you and I’ll continue to be until the end of time. Happy birthday, little sister!"

Little Elizabeth turns 13 this year and she has followed in the footsteps of her older brother onto a tennis court.

In fact, in the past, Stefanos had posted a video on social media, which showed a part of the training they had with their father.

Meanwhile, Roland Garros organisers attracted the ire of Novak Djokovic's fans earlier on Saturday when they took to Twitter to upload a promotional poster for the 2022 edition of the tournament.

They made the artistic choice to include Stefanos Tsitsipas, the runner-up at last year's French Open, in the design and not the defending champion.

That decision, predictably, didn't go down well with legions of Djokovic fans.

The post was originally meant to promote the night sessions at this year's French Open on Court Philipp-Chatrier.

Tsitsipas can be seen standing front and centre in the poster, with the text "Move the lines with your audacity" superimposed on his frame.

Consequently, many fans questioned the Roland Garros social media team's decision to incorporate Tsitsipas, and not Djokovic, in the design.

While it may seem dubious that Roland Garros' organisers chose not to incorporate Djokovic in the poster, it should be taken into consideration that it wasn't clear until recently whether he would play at this year's event.

Perhaps the French Open's graphic design team completed the first draft of the poster when it was being widely reported that Djokovic would not be allowed to play in Paris due to vaccine mandates.

However, as things currently stand, the 20-time Major winner will likely play on the terre battue this year after the French government decided to lift its policy of COVID-19 vaccine passes.
