As he was talking about coming up with a plan, he stated while pointing at Paula Badosa, “How do we not have, we have a coach here.

Badosa played along with a laugh and added to it, “Yes, they discuss everything with me. I have to approve first.

So, even though Philippoussis is not in Tsitsipas’ team anymore, he has got a successful WTA player to guide him. Even the brother of Stefanos shares a close relationship with Badosa. So it seems like this partnership is working for good.
