Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas recently had a discussion with his parents and since then he has been doing solitary isolation. Tsitsipas, ranked at No. 6 in the world, is regularly accompanied by his parents on the Tour events.
Last week, the ATP extended the Tour suspension through to June 7 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Like most of the world's population, the Greek tennis star is also staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic. "If you were wondering why I'm not with my family.
We had a light discussion a few days ago and I left. I still love them, I really want to see them again, but sometimes it is quite stressful to be there. So I decided to go and be alone," Tsitsipas revealed in a video he uploaded on YouTube, per Sports Finding.
2019 Nitto ATP Finals champion Tsitsipas admits being isolated is all but easy. "I really need a shower because I'm dirty and also thirsty, but not from this (he pointed to a bottle of beer). Here's what happens to you when you're quarantined for so long: you lose your mind, you lose yourself in your shit at any given time.
And start talking to objects," Tsitsipas said. The Tour suspension came at a bad time for Tsitsipas, who made back-to-back finals in his last two tournaments played. The Greek beat Felix Auger-Aliassime to lift the Marseille title but failed to stun world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the Dubai final a week later.
