"After careful consideration and many precious moments spent together, Stefanos and I have decided to part ways amicably. We have shared a journey full of love and learned a lot, and it is as friends and with immense mutual respect that we now choose to go our own way.

We are grateful for the support of our friends, family and everyone who has been part of our story. As we enter this new chapter in our lives, let us continue to wish each other only the best in all of our sacrifices. We kindly ask that you respect your privacy during this time and thank you for your understanding."

The love story between Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas is over. The Spanish player announced the end of the relationship through her Instagram account. A union which, ultimately, did not last long but which had incredible media attraction, emphasized by social media.

Badosa published a story in which she explained that she and Tsitsipas parted ways amicably and asked to respect the privacy of both at this delicate moment.

It had been some time since the two had appeared publicly together and many fans had already sensed that there could be such a problem, emphasized at the basis of their social media silence.

Tsitsipas, for his part, has not yet spoken out on the split and the latest video he made public shows him at the Louis II Stadium, home of the Monaco soccer team. "It was nice to support Monaco a bit," he said.

We have been friends for three or four years, she is an incredible person. It's very important to have friends on the WTA Tour, so when you find someone who you feel is your soulmate, it's the best thing that can happen to you," told Aryna.
