Tennis dream couple withdraws – Bettips News

Surprise in Paris: Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas have canceled their participation in the mixed doubles competition at the French Open at short notice.

Many tennis fans had been waiting for this match, but ultimately it never happened: Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas did not compete in the mixed doubles at the French Open as planned. The duo’s joint debut at a Grand Slam has therefore been postponed indefinitely.

The Greek and the Spaniard, who are also a couple off the court, withdrew just a few hours before the start of their match against Ena Shibahara and Nathaniel Lammons, which was scheduled for Monday afternoon. Tsitsipas apparently wanted to play, but his father and coach Apostolos had a different opinion and were able to convince his son to forgo the mixed doubles.


Tsitsipas? “It makes absolutely no sense”

Ultimately, the 25-year-old’s high workload provided plenty of material for discussion. In addition to competing in the singles and his now canceled appearance in the mixed competition, Tsitsipas is also taking part in the men’s doubles with his brother Petros. German tennis legend Boris Becker cannot understand his effort. “After all, he’s playing against Alcaraz next and is wasting his energy on two doubles. It makes absolutely no sense – with all due respect,” said the TV expert on Eurosport.

Becker also said: “I’m normally the last person to criticize others for actions that are done out of love. But he (Stefanos Tsitsipas, editor’s note ) comes here and has never won a Grand Slam. He’s in great shape and has a huge chance. And then he plays mixed doubles and doubles. Sorry, but the boy is really very badly advised! Nobody does that.”
