Greek tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas announced on Saturday that he will begin playing his matches using a new racket, painted blue and white, after the colors of the Greek flag.
The 20-year old athlete, who amazed the world recently with his spectacular performances and historic victories over tennis legends including Roger Federer, is currently in Miami, where he met with fans and sponsors.
Tsitsipas jokingly protested that ”They made me sign everything!” in his video from the Florida city. He was referring to his many autographs on rackets and other items which will be given to sponsors and a few lucky fans.
Tsitsipas also had the chance to try out his new racket, which will feature a representation of the Greek flag, by playing a few tennis games during his visit to the sunny American city.
The Greek phenomenon’s new racket was designed by Wilson, one of the world’s most famous tennis racket manufacturers.
The new rackets will weigh approximately just 300 grams (10.5 ounces) and are expected to become the new, absolute ”must-have” for all Greek tennis-lovers around the world.
