Some of the Twitter users also made a suggestion with a sarcastic comment. They added, “Ons and Casper would make the final and still lose”. This comment was targeted at Ruud and Jabeur who have an unwanted reputation of losing Grand Slam finals.

Another user joined the conversation as they suggested Stefanos, and Karolina Muchova play together as a team. Along with the suggestion, they also wrote why they believe this team would be great. It said, “Both talented clay courters. Dream team for me.”

A super excited tennis fan also shared their suggestion with pictures of their favorites. The pictures were of Emma Raducanu and Carlos Alcaraz. Along with the photos, the caption said, “THIS IS THE DREAM TEAM, I WANT, YOU WANT, EVERYBODY WANT”.

The debate did not end there as tennis fans continued to drop comments about their dream team.

Last but not the least, one of the comments obviously came for the lovebirds to be seen together. The Twitter user commented Stefanos and Paula to be paired up. This suggestion came across over and over again as the two were supposed to play in the mixed doubles in Wimbledon but unfortunately withdrew due to an injury to the Spaniard.

Will Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa make it to the mixed doubles this time?

After the two tennis players revealed their relationship, their fans have wanted them to play on the court as a team. They haven’t had a chance to team up together and take their relationship to a professional level as of now. They were supposed to play as a team in the mixed doubles at Wimbledon.

But that could not happen because of an unfortunate injury that Paula Badosa had to face. Due to the injury, she had to walk away from her journey at Wimbledon and so the two were not seen on the court. Would things be different for them at the US Open?
