‘Soft is strong’ – Tsitsipas’ way to replay to Kyrgios’ comments after Wimbledon fall out

Stefanos Tsitsipas And Nick Kyrgios

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios used to be in a very good relationship until at least their latest clash in Wimbledon. Stefanos lost to Nick, who was in “full antics mode.” The Greek sensation didn’t stomach Nick’s behavior to also tried to hit him during their match.

What is soft is strong

After the encounter, Tsitsipas accused Kyrgios of being a bully, and Nick replied saying that Stefanos is soft. Fast forward a couple of months and Tsitsipas publishes the following post referring to the water and its strengths.

“There is this one quote that I really like these days, which comes from Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. Someone I admire and have read about a lot.

He said: “Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”
