Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa appear to have ended speculation that their love story had come to an end, after they were captured enjoying time with each other in Greece.

Tsitsipas and Badosa became social media sensations when they confirmed their romance, with an Instagram account set up to capture images of their love story.

Yet those images disappeared in recent days, sparking speculation that their romance may have come an end.

Badosa posted an image of what she described as her ‘date’ with world No 1 Aryna Sabalenka, which added to social media speculation that she was no longer in a relationship with men’s world No 5 Tsitsipas.

Yet the couple appear to be very much in love after an image appeared on Instagram of the couple together.

Badosa also reacted to an emotional video posted by the ATP from Tsitsipas, as he looked back on his story in tennis.

“Dear, tennis. I remember the first time I met you,” said Tsitsipas in his ‘love letter’ to the sport.

“It was 2001. Both my parents, Apostolos and Julia, introduced me to this beautiful sport that I practice today. What seemed special to me was that I felt like I was part of a playground. My playground, where there were no rules or limits.

“I fell in love with you when I was eight years old and won my first tournament in Normandy, France.

“I would wake up during the night and tell my father: Consider me out of any other sport, football, swimming, athletics, because I only want to play tennis and it will be my sport for the rest of my life.

“I played my first match on the ATP Tour in Rotterdam in 2017.

“I was still a junior at that time and my first opponent was Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. I was a free-spirited tennis player who played without thinking about the consequences.

“That match taught me to carefully select my shots and made me more mature.

“Since then, I have come a long way. I won very complicated matches and suffered some really tough defeats, which did not allow me to sleep because of the pain and suffering I felt for not having won a match that I should have won.

“At times, I even felt hatred towards you. One of the memorable moments you gave me is my first success in a Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo, where I feel at home. I used to watch the tournament when I was little and winning brought back so many emotions and made me feel nostalgic.

“They are sensations that you cannot exchange with anything else. You taught me to live life as it is, to never doubt myself and simply continue living regardless of the results. I have always committed myself with devotion during this journey.

“Every single day, I am grateful that I chose you. I hope that in the future we will feel mutual love towards each other. I hope my children can continue my tradition and be a part of you.”

Badosa responded to the emotional video from Tsitsipas with a sad face and heart emoji, as she confirmed the video had an emotional impact on her.

So it seems that fans who have enjoyed the ‘Tsitsidosa’ romance will have much more to come from the glamour couple of tennis.
