Tennis players are extremely serious when they compete but they have a lighter side to them as well. Likewise, Stefanos Tsitsipas recently cracked up his Twitter comments section by responding to a fan in the most hilarious manner!

It all started when a Twitter user posted a rather interesting fact about 30-year-old Vasek Pospisil. “Tennis player Vasek Pospisil drank maple syrup to stay hydrated. Now that’s Canadian!” the user named Sandra Cormier Turnsek wrote. 

Now, this was published in September, but Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas somehow dug this up from the internet and posted a reply tweet last night, expressing a desire to prove his nationality during matches in the most unique manner possible!

It sure is amusing to know Tsitsipas wants to have a sip of flavored spirits during his matches, but one of his fans wanted to obtain different information from him. Hence, he asked Tsitsipas about his current training partner. 

This was a pretty straightforward question and Stefanos Tsitsipas did deliver an honest answer, but he might have revealed too much with his tweet. Fans got to know the Greek star is training with Karen Khachanov but they got added detail along with the answer. 

Stefanos Tsitsipas was certainly in the mood to mess around with his Twitter following or his claims might really be true. One can only be assured if Karen Khachanov responds to this tweet.

Stefanos Tsitsipas on the biggest lesson he learned in 2020

This year certainly wasn’t up to anybody’s expectations. The pandemic has shattered the way how the world functions and we still continue to battle against the virus. COVID-19 played a huge part in altering the tennis calendar in 2020, but somehow fans got to witness Grand Slams and other tournaments take place. 

We’re adapting to the new normal now, but the forced lockdown period early in the year was a life-changing experience for everyone. Stefanos Tsitsipas came out of it having learned a huge lesson which he shared with his online following as well. 

“If there is one thing that this pandemic taught me is to focus on other people and provide compassion,” the 22-year-old wrote on Twitter.

Tsitsipas has also been an active member in giving back to the community and has been elevating his game on the tennis court as well. The rising star won just a single trophy in 2020 but would look to assert his dominance next year.
