While the tennis community is praising Tsitsipas for being cute and filled the comment section with things like, ” Naaaaw ❤️ ” and “So cool of Stef👏👏👏”, some have also pointed out how the security guard in blue is just standing there, facing the fans, without so much as moving a muscle.

The video that has now gone viral only within less than an hour of posting is captioned, “Tsitsipurse”. In the video, Stefanos is seen prepping before the match when an overexcited fan’s t-shirt falls out of the stands. Tsitsipas notices this and immediately picks it up and returns to the fan. The t-shirt seems to look like the Czech flag and maybe the fans are here to cheer his opponent, J. Lehecka.

However, soon after, a lady who was bending and trying to capture Tsitsipas’ adorable moment on her phone loses her purse in the same way as the t-shirt. By then, Tsitsipas had already turned around, but he went back and helped her pick it up too. While all the fans in the box started cheering and laughing delightedly at this chivalric gesture, Tsitsipas seemed unfazed.
