Carlos Alcaraz eliminated Stefanos Tsitsipas from the 2024 French Open in the quarterfinals.

Greek tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas recently took to social media and stated that he’ll be back in Paris for the upcoming 2024 Olympics.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2024 French Open last week after losing in straight sets to Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz. The Greek lost the match 6-3, 7-6, 6-4 after two hours and 15 minutes. Moreover, it was his sixth consecutive loss against Carlos Alcaraz on the ATP tour.

He also participated in the men’s doubles event alongside his brother, Petros Tsitsipas. The Tsitsipas brothers made it to the quarterfinals of the 2024 French Open, where they lost against the eventual men’s doubles champions Marcelo Arevalo and Mate Pavic. However, they have secured a 2024 Paris Olympics berth with their decent run in the claycourt Major.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was also going to play in the mixed doubles event alongside his girlfriend, Paula Badosa. However, the couple failed to make their tennis debut together due to personal issues and scheduling.

The two-time Grand Slam runner-up recently took to X (formerly Twitter) and stated that he’ll be returning to the French capital for the upcoming Olympics. He wrote, “Paris, je t’aime. See you again soon for the Olympics!”

Before losing against Carlos Alcaraz, Tsitsipas defeated Matteo Arnaldi, Zhang Zhizhen, Daniel Altmaier, and Márton Fucsovics in the initial rounds. This season, the Greek tennis star has won one title, the ATP 1000 Monte Carlo Masters and his W/L record is 24/9.

The 25-year-old will now shift his focus to the grass season before the 2024 Paris Olympics. The grass season will kick off with the Stuttgart Open, an ATP 250 event. However, fans can expect Stefanos Tsitsipas to be back in action at either the Queen’s Club Championships or the Halle Open, both scheduled from June 17 to 23.

Both ATP 500 tournaments take place at the same time, so players must choose which competition to participate in. Tsitsipas competed at Halle last year, where he was eliminated in the second round. Additionally, the Greek tennis star has yet to advance past the fourth round at the Wimbledon Championships.
