This Is What Tsitsipas Thinks About On Big Points...
Does Stefanos Tsitsipas wear the same shirt for an entire tournament?
The Greek star revealed that and plenty more in an Instagram Q&A session before the Western & Southern Open begins at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York.
Will you ever go back to short hair?
I have been thinking about it for a long time now. I would love to have short hair, it’s not very easy to maintain that long hair. But at the same time it’s my style and it’s who I am.
For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
Some of the things that I am really grateful for are my family, my friends, being from Greece, from such a rich country, and being healthy of course and being able to travel at the same time and play tennis at such a high level.
Do you have any superstitions?
Wearing the same t-shirt throughout the whole tournament. I’m just kidding! That’s not a thing.
What do you think about on big points?
Are my shoelaces broken?

Are you going to play doubles with me? (from Dominic Thiem)
Dominic don’t worry about it, we’re going to play doubles. But unfortunately the coronavirus struck just before Miami so it never happened. But I’m sure we can arrange something for the future.

How to make my bed.

What language do you want to master in the future?
I always have a thing for Japanese, so I’ll go for Japanese. It’s just such a mysterious language.
Do you consider being in the film industry?
It’s one of my dreams too. I would love to be in that business.
