Stefanos Tsitsipas is having a rather good year so far. The Greek sensation reached his first slam semifinal at the Australian Open after defeating the great Roger Federer, and he conquered 2 tournaments in Marseille and Estoril. In addition, Stefanos reached a prestigious final in Madrid.
However, things started to get a bit ugly after the clay-court season as Tsitsipas had a horrible run on grass after he lost in the opener in ‘s-Hertogensbosh and in Wimbledon. Things got even worse during a disastrous American summer. In fact, after reaching the semifinal in Washington, Stefanos lost in the opening matches in Montreal, Cincinnati, and at the US Open.
His young age and social media
At 21 years of age, like many other youngsters, Stefanos is used to spend a lot of time on social media. The Greek likes to come out with quotes and random thoughts, but that is taking a toll on his focus. For this reason, Tsitsipas decided to take a break from social media.
Stefanos sent a tweet saying: “I am out, might see you again in a month or a year. Adios muchachos!”
Then Stefanos added:
“I’m doing this to refresh myself, to kind of bring myself closer to people that matter to me and not to be focused on people I don’t know, people I have no relationship with. By doing this I will have more time for my loved ones, the people I care about the most.”
This is probably a very good move.
Stefanos Tsitsipas’s ranking and performance in 2019

This year the Greek has a 37-19 win-loss record. Stefanos has won 2 titles in 2019 in Marseille and in Estoril. Stefanos was the finalist in Dubai and in Madrid.
