Is it steamy in here or is it just Tsitsidosa?

The sport’s preeminent power couple of Paula Badosa and Stefanos Tsitsipas stepped in front of the camera to take part in the latest tennis photoshoot by photographer Radka Leitmeritz.

Leitmeritz shared the images taken during the 2023 US Open on Instagram, along with portraits of the recently retired Barbora Strycova, Jessica Pegula, Anastasia Potapova, Xu Yi Fan, Shelby Rogers, and Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

“PART 2 of my portrait series starts with big dose of love by Tsitsidosa, cutes[t] couple on tour,” writes Leitmeritz, who has been photographing the game’s brightest stars throughout the 2020s.


Tsitsidosa are no stranger to a black-and-white image, but Badosa and Tsitsipas spent the summer in living color, sharing selfies from Times Square and Flushing Meadows during the final major tournament of the season.

While Badosa has taken the rest of the year off to rest an injured back, Tsitsipas is in position to qualify for a fifth straight Nitto ATP Finals, having won the title in 2019 and started 2023 by reaching a second major final at the Australian Open.

It was during his Melbourne run that Tsitsipas famously first caught Badosa’s attention, and the former world No. 2 was soon papped at the Greek’s Roland Garros matches in Paris.

A couples Spotify and Instagram followed their relationship reveal, which currently boasts just under 100,000 followers.

How might Tsitsidosa cap what has already been an unforgettable year?
