Stefanos Tsitsipas continues to be at the centre of the global tennis community for revealing his daily hair routine, but how can we also forget the Naomi Osaka prank with mayonnaise, the ATP tribute to Greek hairdressers and the lack of trust in his father for his haircut.
The prank on Naomi Osaka
During the quarantine period when tennis was stopped, Tsitsipas and Osaka often appeared on the internet together.
The two of them had developed a very good relationship then, in 2020, and the Japanese former No. 1 in the world said that she admired him while he spoke in nice words about her social and anti-racist actions.
The prank he made on Osaka for his hair that went down in history!
Asked about the secret that keeps his hair healthy, he replied: “I put Greek olive oil in my hair, then I add some wasabi in and some vinegar as well. It blends really well… Then I leave it in for about 25 or 30 minutes [and] go take a shower.”
Osaka called him a liar and realised that he… teases her.
“I’m so good at lying! All my life I thought I was so bad at it, but now I suddenly got good at it,” Tsitsipas playfully added.
The question from the bald journalist
When Stefanos Tsitsipas eliminated Roberto Bautista Agut in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in January 2019 and was preparing to play with Nadal for a place in the final, he starred in a scene about his hair in a press conference.
The BIG question to @StefTsitsipas….

I do not trust my father
In August 2021, before the premiere of the US Open, the Greek tennis player was asked in New York again about his hair and whether he cut it during quarantine.
The young journalist was told that Tsitsipas doesn’t remember cutting his hair during the lockdown because he doesn’t trust anyone to do that.
After the journalist said his hair looked bad after his dad cut it, Stefanos replied: “I would not trust my dad either to cut my hair.”

International Hair Day
October 1 in the United States is National Hair Day. In the 2020 US Open, tennis players decided to make a theme for their hair and one of the first to put it in the frame was naturally Tsitsipas.
