It’s off season’s time, and it’s the nice moment for a great and relaxing break. Usually, tennis players love going to the Maldives during the off season, but of course somebody else had a different idea.
Stefanos Tsitsipas and Iceland
The champion of the recent ATP Finals, Stefanos Tsitsipas, opted for a rather unusual vacation: Iceland. The Greek loves photography and having all sorts of different experiences and he decided to spend a few days in the land of the Vikings. Eventually, the world no.6 decided even to have a rather cold swim that was quite dissimilar to the one that you can have on a tropical island.
While a Greek guy used to the sun of his beautiful country decided to go for a cold place, fellow upcoming players Daniil Medvedev and Karen Khachanov (both from Russia!) decided to go for the hot one.
Of course, there is more than a nice beach in the world, but looking at the pictures, probably the Russian guys were right!
