Stefanos Tsitsipas is enjoying his time-off from tennis on social media. Especially on Twitter, the 21-year-old has been quite active and is posting updates about what he is getting into since tennis action has been suspended for six weeks on account of Coronavirus (Covid-19).
In the three months of the 2020 season, Tsitsipas has had up and down results but he also sharply bounced back after a low patch, and defended his title in Marseille and also defended his final's points in Dubai. Recently, following the cancellation of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Tsitsipas spent a few days exploring the ins and outs of Los Angeles.
Then, in his usual quirky style, the world no. 6 commented, “’See you next year’ isn’t a funny joke”.
Other players, too, have been posting regular updates of what they are doing to spend the time. Some are taking the time out to train while others using the time to relax and unwind, with their families.
“See you next year” isn’t a funny joke.
