After the defeat suffered in the quarter-finals of the ATP 500 tournament in Hamburg against Filip Krajinovic, Stefanos Tsitsipas has reopened the debate on the coaching issue through a post published on his Twitter profile.
The Greek tennis player often expresses his opinion of him without fear and, in this last case, he declared himself entirely in favor of what could represent a real revolution for the world of tennis.
Tsitsipas said: "In tennis, coaching should be allowed at every single point. Sport needs to adopt it. We are probably one of the few global sports not to use coaching while playing. Let's make it legal. It is time for our sport to take a big step forward."
Social clash between Tsitsipas and Kyrgios
Many people have commented on his tweet and seriously considered the consequences that an innovation like this could have on player performance. Nick Kyrgios also intervened on the affair, who expressed the thought of him by throwing a dig at Tsitsipas and opening a sort of social confrontation with what seemed to be one of his best friends in the Tuor: "I don't usually contest his ideas about him, but this is really terrible."
Tsitsipas's response was not long in coming. The Greek tennis player has played on the choice made by the Australian in recent years. Kyrgios has in fact decided not to rely on any coach and to train only with his athletic trainer in view of the most important tournaments of the major circuit. "I'll get you a coach, don't worry about that."
We will see if in the coming days the social diatribe between the two will continue or end like this. Tsitsipas will restart from the Tokyo Olympics. The world number 4 has in fact decided to represent his country and will certainly be one of the big favorites in the men's singles, especially considering the absence of tennis players of the caliber of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem, Matteo Berrettini and Kyrgios himself.
