Tennis Phenom Stefanos Tsitsipas Takes Break from Social Media

Greek professional tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas, currently ranked seventh in the world, has decided to take a time out from the distracting world of social media and is shutting down all his accounts to declutter his life.

The 21-year-old, who has long been a prolific uploader on his various social media accounts, announced his decision just a few hours before his appearance at the Davis Cup, the premier international team event in men’s tennis.

Leaving Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram is – as Tsitsipas says – the best way for him to focus exclusively on his family and loved ones, while at the same time keeping his personal life out of the limelight.

“I am decluttering … This is going to disappear soon”, the young tennis great said in a video posted on Twitter.

“I’m doing this to refresh myself, to kind of bring myself closer to people that matter to me and not to be focused on people I don’t know, people I have no relationship with. By doing this I will have more time for my loved ones, the people I care about the most,” Tsitsipas explained to his legions of followers.
