An image of Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas has been named one of Time’s Top Photos of 2021 with the creative genius of its photographer Julian Finney compared to that of famed Italian painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.
Tsitsipas, booed on court during a shock defeat by Spanish teenager Alcarez, explains that he broke no rules as well as the tactical advantages of an empty bladder.
In a full length interview, Maria Sakkaris talks about her determination to win, and makes revelations about her relationship with the Prime Minister’s son, Konstantinos Mitsotakis.
“What I learned today is that no matter what, in order for the match to be finished, you have to win three sets and not two,” Tsitsipas said afterward. “Two sets doesn’t really mean anything. It’s still one away of winning the entire match.”
Sakkari had a breakthrough on hardcourts early in the year, beating Muguruza, Kenin, Svitolina & Osaka, but is still searching for top claycourt form.
