Paula Badosa had a touching reaction to a fan's post about Stefanos Tsitsipas, revealing she deeply "misses" her boyfriend. Tsitsipas, who was spotted together with Badosa for the first time at the French Open, competed in China over the last few weeks.
After suffering a disappointing first-round loss in Beijing, Tsitsipas also exited the Shanghai Masters in the third round this week. In Asia, Tsitsipas wasn't accompanied by his girlfriend Badosa, who is currently at home recovering from her back injury.
A fan posted a Tsitsipas gif along with a caption: "I miss him already." Badosa reacted by saying: "Me too."

Badosa and Tsitsipas 'strongly connected'
The rumors of Badosa and Tsitsipas being spotted started when the two were spotted together at the French Open.
After Tsitsipas concluded his French Open run, the two went to a short trip to Dubai. That was when Badosa and Tsitsipas publicly confirmed their relationship. Later, Badosa revealed that everything started during the Rome tournament in May, when Tsitsipas decided to message her after one of her wins.
"He definitely surprised me. He is shy, but at the same time, I’m shy too. I would never take the first step! In the beginning we were taking our time in the relationship, moving slowly. Once we connected, however, the connection was very strong and powerful.
We have similar personalities. Thankfully he made the first step, because I don’t know if I would have! I was too nervous," Badosa told Vicky Georgatou in an interview that was published on SDNA and CLAY. Tsitsipas has spoken extremely highly of Badosa several times over the last couple of months, many times describing her as his "soulmate." Also, Tsitsipas said several times that he and Badosa are hoping to achieve their tennis dreams together - that includes winning a Grand Slam and reaching the world No 1 ranking.
