“If we pay attention will we reduce the dispersion”: Stefanos Tsitsipas

Tsitsipas was preparing to start his campaign at the Sunshine Double in Indian Wells and Miami. However, coronavirus fears led to the cancellation of both events. Subsequently, he took social media to give a heartfelt message to his fans. He urged the people to not take coronavirus lightly.

“I want to tell you two things about the corona. If you’re young and healthy, and you’re not worried about yourself, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care! Because it is very contagious,” Tsitsipas said in a post on Twitter.

“Only if we pay attention will we reduce the dispersion. So what do we do? Wash hands constantly! And not in a hurry. Wash your hands and say twice inside you happy birthday to you,” he added.
