“My wardrobe was quite weak”- Stefanos Tsitsipas

It’s been an eventful season for the Greek youngster. Undoubtedly, he will have some regrets, coming so close to the title and missing out on multiple occasions. Even so, he has had plenty to cheer about, especially rising through the official rankings. As he enjoys being the newly crowned World No. 3, he opens up about an off-court moment. Notably, he talks about his girlfriend playing a part in redefining his clothing style.

He said, “My wardrobe was quite weak, and I didn’t have a game there. I wanted to start dressing up a bit, so we tried to create an identity. Earthy colors, nothing too flashy; refined but youthful.”

Evidently overwhelmed by his experiment, his love for fashion and style didn’t just end there. “I started investing more in fashion, and I’ve seen that transition kind of benefit me a lot and make me feel better about myself. Things seem to be working my way. If I keep putting in the same amount of work and if I stay persistent, I feel it can lead to a really nice place I haven’t been before,” Stefanos expressed.
