Tsitsidosa Debut Postponed Again As Badosa & Tsitsipas Withdraw From Roland Garros

Tsitsidosa Debut Postponed Again As Badosa & Tsitsipas Withdraw From Roland Garros

by Zachary Wimer

Stefanos Tsitsipas and Paula Badosa were supposed to play mixed doubles at the 2024 Roland Garros, but they won't as they withdrew from the tournament.

One of the most famous tennis couples in the world, Badosa and Tsitsipas are affectionately known as Tsitsidosa, and they were supposed to make an appearance on the tennis courts in Paris.

They signed up to play mixed doubles at the season's second major. They broke up not too long ago but recently rekindled their relationship, to the delight of many fans. When they broke up, many assumed that the World Tennis League earlier this year was the only time we would see them in action.

They played well together back then, showing a pretty good amount of chemistry, but we haven't really gotten to see that in an official match. They were supposed to play at Wimbledon last year, but then they withdrew.

They were supposed to play this year in Paris as well, but once again, they withdrew, but this time likely because of a different reason. Back then, the culprit behind their withdrawal was Badosa's injury.

This time, the withdrawal doesn't come as a huge surprise, considering that Tsitsipas would essentially have to do triple duty at the event. He's still in the singles draw, and a very big match against Carlos Alcaraz is coming up.

He's also in the doubles draw with his brother Petros, who he really values playing with. They even won an ATP trophy together last year in Antwerp, and he named it as one of his top career wins.

Therefore, playing mixed doubles on top of that would probably be a bit too much for the Greek player. As a result, they made a decision to withdraw from their first-round match, which was supposed to be played against Ena Shibahara and Nathaniel Lammons.
