Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa took part in a Valentine's Day quiz hosted by Marion Bartoli for Sky Sports. The first question had the duo nominate which one of them is the more affectionate person on Valentine's Day. Badosa admitted he likes to hug Tsitsipas first thing in the morning.

When asked who's the better cook, Badosa quickly pointed to Tsitsipas. "I like to cook Mediterranean food. We're both from the Mediterranean Sea. I like to make fish and meat sometimes. I'm good at salads," said Stefanos. The Greek player was also the first one who said "I love you." He also revealed the city in which he did it.

"In Paris, yes. Best city to start this," Stef pointed out. "Romantic play," Badosa responded smiling.

Tsitsipas also sent the first message.

"Rome, second round, against Ons Jabeur. I said 'Clinical, great tennis out there'," Tsitsipas revealed. Wondering how did Badosa responded? "I was like 'Paula, wait for an hour, play it tough!' 5 minutes and I replied. Very weak," said Badosa.

Furthermore, Bartoli asked the couple who takes more time to get ready. The duo admitted that Stefanos does, both in the morning and before dinner. "I'm very fast, so..." Badosa said. Lastly, Bartoli requested Tsitsipas and Badosa to describe each other with three words.

"Authentic, beautiful (in and out), intelligent," said Badosa. "Affectionate, caring, intelligent," said Tsitsipas.

Badosa and Tsitsipas' Valentine's Day messages

Paula Badosa sent a public Valentine's Day message to her boyfriend Stefanos Tsitsipas.

"And I'll always choose you @stefanostsitsipas98. Happy Valentine's Day mi amor," Badosa wrote in one of her Instagram Stories.

Tsitsipas responded with an Instagram Story captioned with the words "my Valentine @paulabadosa." Badosa and Tsitsipas hooked up in the early summer of 2023 and looked like an affectionate couple ever since.

In December 2023, they even played mixed doubles together at the World Tennis League event in Dubai. That was when Badosa dropped a marriage hint. "I mean, I think this was a test, either we get divorced, or this goes better, and better, so that was the test today," Badosa said on the court.

Tsitsipas reacted by saying: "You mean break up. I was thinking since when I was married, but apparently, there are some hints there. But it was amazing, it's a pleasure to be sharing the court."

A month before, Badosa celebrated her birthday together with Stefanos.

The Greek planned a special cake for Paula and also wished her happy birthday on Instagram by captioning a photo from a professional photoshoot. "Happy Birthday, my Spanish warrior! Te amo," wrote Tsitsipas. See photos: Paula Badosa celebrates birthday with Stefanos Tsitsipas, gets special cake.

About a week before Badosa's birthday, the duo dined in Seville. They had churros, but not any kind of churros. Churros dipped in chocolate. Paula posted photos from the dinner on Instagram. "This couldn't be missed," she captioned them.

But it doesn't need to be her birthday for Tsitsipas to give Badosa gifts. For example, in December Stefanos surprised the Spanish player with roses on a practice court.

"My boy came to surprise me," Badosa praised on social media.

Some tennis fans say they are corny, but Tsitsipas and Badosa look deeply in love.

Tsitsipas described Badosa as his "soulmate" while being convinced he would have found Badosa even if they weren't tennis players. Regarding tennis, Badosa started the year with a first round loss in Adelaide, a 3rd round run at the Australian Open, a scary withdrawal from Hua Hin, and a second-round defeat in the Qatar Open.
