Tsitsipas : « Je ne sais pas si j’étais Pythagore ou Socrate dans ma vie antérieure, mais cela ne me dérangerait pas d’être l’un ou l’autre »⁣⁣

-

Le joueur grec s’est confié à Behind The Racquet. Comme d’habitude, c’est très intéressant.

On le sait Stefanos est un joueur à part sur le circuit. Il s’exprime librement au sujet certaines thématiques et pas seulement celles qui entourent le tennis. C’est ce qui fait aussi son charme.

Au fil de ses déclarations, il est donc devenu un vrai personnage, créatif, et souvent surprenant. « J’ai des passe-temps qui m’intéressent et qui sont liés à différents aspects de la vie. Ces activités me permettent d’être créatif et cela se reflètent dans mon jeu de tennis. Parfois, je publie sur mes réseaux sociaux des choses que peu de gens comprennent. Ces messages expriment ma créativité intérieure. Je suis philosophe, je viens d’un pays avec une histoire autour de la philosophie et je ne sais pas si j’étais Pythagore ou Socrate dans ma vie antérieure, mais cela ne me dérangerait pas d’être l’un ou l’autre »⁣⁣ a déclaré le joueur grec.

“In 2018, I broke into the Top 15 and was seeded in Grand Slams. That's when I understood my potential. In the beginning, I traveled with only my dad. Now, I travel with my dad, mom, and three siblings. I'm the main source of income for my family. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I have hobbies that keep me interested in different aspects of life. These activities keep me creative and are reflected in my tennis game. Sometimes, I post things on my social media that not many people understand. These posts express my inner creativity. I put Stefanos’ twist on life. I am philosophical, I come from a country with a history of philosophy and I don't know if I was Pythagoras or Socrates in my previous life, but I wouldn't mind being either one. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There was a time when I wasn't doing well. I started to play futures and was doubting myself. I wasn't sure if I was good enough to play professional tennis. My country was on the verge of bankruptcy. The entire population was suffering. My father's siblings were unemployed and couldn't feed their families. People looked at me like I was the one ruling the country and they thought I was part of the problem. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I felt isolated. I wasn't home to see what was going on because I was traveling. I needed support. My mental coach shared his wisdom and inspired me. Then I said to myself, ‘You've dedicated your entire life to tennis, you can't just give up. You’ve got to keep going.’ I play tennis to prove that my country has a great history and can achieve success. Tennis is a very introverted sport and we face everything alone. We have a team that follows us all over the world but I have spent countless sleepless nights on my own. All the traveling and competing causes a lot of stress and I grew very lonely.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I was an introverted child and didn't have many friends. When I started playing on tour, I thought I would develop friendships but it turned out to be the opposite. Most players keep to themselves. I feel like players don't want to become friends because they think someone will grab a secret from you to beat you. I guess they're just too serious about the whole thing. Friends would make traveling less lonely.⁣⁣” @stefanostsitsipas98 #BTR
