We have a 10 year difference so I always felt that, of course, I’m her older sister but as I say, at the same time, I always felt like I had to like, be her second mom.
I protect her so much, especially the role I’m playing right now with her right now it’s financially, I’m helping her. Her dream was always to come her to the US, to study, to learn English. Her maturity is growing so fast thanks to that, so I’m very proud of her.
She’s the most important person in my life. So I would, she knows that I would do anything for her and I just want her to have an opportunity to do whatever she wants or her dream. I had my opportunity to make my dream come true, so I just want that for her."
Paula Badosa: between injury and private life
On social media, Paula Badosa responded to some of the questions posed by her followers by saying how she handles being away from the pitch due to injuries, explaining: "Well, with such long-term injuries there are always cracks, but I'm managing the situation as best I can." Regarding her relationship with the Greek tennis player and she states: "I love Greek culture, it shares so many similarities with Spanish culture.
I love everything, I can't wait to learn more about this culture." It therefore seems that Tsitsipas is a fundamental ingredient in Paula Badosa's life currently, and together with him another essential ingredient for the tennis player's well-being recipe would be positivity.
In fact, the world number 54 also talked about her mantra for happiness: "I always try to see the positive side of things. There have been moments in my life that haven't been like that, and there are days that are worse than others, but I know that this makes me stronger and gives me the experience to learn to handle it better each time.
I think we have to go through all kinds of experiences in life to then know what we want, what we like and what we don't. I'm in a moment where I try to focus on the good things I have, and above all we all live in the moment, because today we won't live it anymore, so let's enjoy it."
