Social Media waste of energy for Stefanos Tsitsipas

“It was great spending some time here on Twitter. I’ll see you another time!!! Bye bye!” Tsitsipas wrote in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

“I feel like I don’t need it at all. I have been thinking about a lot of things when I’m out on the court and also what happened in social media. It’s a waste of energy for my brain and for my thinking,” said the 21-year-old in an interview earlier.
